TheLadysWorkbox's Shop Announcement

I've been studying and researching mid-19th century knitting for over 15 years. My desire was to recreate some of the period patterns as close as possible to the originals. With that in mind, I use only 100% wool or silk yarns, in the same thread sizes as the original patterns recommend, as well as using the recommended needle sizes, although I do alter things to fit individuals. My hope was to create reproductions that would hopefully look like period pieces as much as possible, rather than simply a modern piece that used an old pattern.

Although most of what you will find here are reproduction knitted goods, from time to time I like to play with other period crafts, so you may find those as well. Rest assured I do things as close as possible to what would have been done in the period..That's part of the fun!
