Dr. Strawn has written and compiled a wonderful book on knitting history. It's exciting to read that, over 300 years ago women and their knitting groups behaved much the same as myself and my group. This new awareness makes me KNOW that I'm part of something big. Now I can use history to justify the time and money I spend on knitting. For that, I thank Susan.

The book is well researched and is an enjoyable read. It expertly guides the reader on a tour of the history of this art. Please read it, it will give you a new respect for this art and cherish the people who have insured it continuence.

I have just finished the preview, and while I am very interested in the history of knitting, I am having trouble trusting an author who in the beginning of her book identifies Jamestown, Virginia as a failed colony. Jamestown did struggle in the beginning, but ultimately it was the first successful English settlement in what eventually became the United States. A history writer who makes such an error casts doubt upon the rest of her work.
