A Tasket ~ Let's Knit A Basket
'n' Starch began as a journey through history. Through great foresight
of my grandmother, great aunts and my mom, numerous Victorian and
Edwardian hand crafted items were passed down to me. The Victorian
home held a plethora of knitted, embroidered, crocheted, tatted,
woven ... well, all sorts of needlecrafted item. And most were on
prominent display. My grandmother and great aunts did a lot of starching
and I am fortunate enough to have their original patterns in that
elegant, spidery handwriting of the day. Often,
the number of items displayed was viewed as being akin to the very
wealth and standing of the family in the community. We have attempted
to design memories of those very same bygone eras and bring them
into the world of modern day machine knitting. Each of the items
you see in our pictures on this page were machine knit. The patterns
are easy to follow and suitable for a wide variety of machines.
of our patterns are now in ELECTRONIC FORMAT! These are available
in either WORD or PDF file. Purchasers will receive a URL for download
upon payment. Please click the Books & Patterns link.
would love to hear from you ...
