Recently I've been learning more about the history and social aspect of knitting...don't yawn yet, stay with me...there's no pop quiz in your future...just hours of inspiration folks, because this is reading for pleasure for both knitter and history buffs. There are several books to choose from and some also include a multitude of fibers and various aspects of knitting and it's development into the recent explosion of popularity in both the art and craft worlds. That's another discussion all together for many people, but I have no problem with knitting as an artform. The thing is, knitting and crochet are embedded in our history, embrace it and knit/crochet on!

Here's my starter list for your library collection. (Some of these books are now available on Kindle, and in audio form) These are books that I have in my own library for reference. There are more so look around and pick the one right for you. You can search "knitting history" , " knitting in america", or any other historical aspect to see what's out there and have your own starter list.
