Lost traditional fibre arts

Though the blogger admittedly doesn’t get around to updating very often, this blog is a treasure trove of various traditional techniques such as Bosnian crochet, Tunisian crochet, shepherd’s knitting and crochet, Dutch knitting, and Turkish socks.

I’m always wanting to learn new methods and yarn-related skills, and the pieces are gorgeous to boot.

But ultimately, I was most excited to find this site because the librarian in me loves the idea that someone is preserving this knowledge for future generations.

The blogger also posts a link to this hook-making tutorial. Definitely itching to try it now.
