Weekend frolics

Some fun places to spend weekend downtime when not actually knitting:

Knitting History, which includes patterns and links to other historical sites.

Vintage Purls, which features - oh my - instructions for 1940s and 50s patterns whose copyright has expired. It's got me thinking about knitting placemats, though, which means its collection is Highly Dangerous.
has a page sharing stitches and patterns from Home Work (1891), and hosts the KnitWiki.

The Victoria and Albert Museum (which really is the most lovely place) has its own knitting pages as well...

including one that led me to The Hook and The Book, which looks at the history of both knitting and crochet in the U.S. My fave!
