Reviews - What do customers think about Weldon's Practical Needlework, Volume 8 (Weldon's Practical Needlework series)?

These reprints are a gift!  Apr 5, 2004
I love to create clothing from "true" vintage knitting and crocheting patterns, which are very difficult to find in the US; and when I do nail down a source, the pattern is moldy, portions of a magazine for a particularly nice pattern have been carefully removed (as though I wouldn't notice the pagination moving from page 42 to page 59), and then the source becomes incognito.

Part of the fun is "translating" the old-fashioned terms, and imagining why a horse would need knitted ear-muffs! Never mind, my English-Irish grandmother, still sharp at age 93 and the one who taught me these womanly skills, will explain the next time I visit.

A beautiful selection of patterns & neeldework from the past  Dec 4, 2002
If you haven't begun collecting the Weldon's series yet...... Start with this book. It is SO inspirational! It features hundreds of patterns in crochet, knitting, and other needlearts, PLUS has 2 sections that I'd never even heard of before: Crinkled Tissue Paper Work and Japanese curtain work.
Though I have to admit that working the patterns is "work" because wording, tools, and abbreviations have changed, that didn't deter my enthusiasm at all. It is so much fun seeing how needleworker's used to do the crafts that I love so much.

The book is full of "practical" things to create, too. I had no idea that so many forms of clothing were knit: everything from chest protectors to anti-rheumatic kneecaps. And the edgings and border patterns are immense. You will never run out of things to put edgings and borders on after reading this collection.

This series is not just for re-inactors, but a very useful set of references for modern knitters as well.
