No Idle Hands: The Social History of American Knitting

MacDonald, Anne L.

New York: Ballantine Books, 1990 A fascinating and detailed account of the history of knitting in America It demonstrates " how the necessity-and the pleasure-of knitting has shaped women’s lives. Here is the Colonial woman for whom idleness was a sin, and her Victorian counterpart, who enjoyed the pleasure of knitting while visiting with friends; the war wife eager to provide her man with warmth and comfort, and the modern woman busy creating fashionable handknits for herself and her family. Macdonald examines each phase of American history and gives us a clear and compelling look at life, then and now. And through it all, we see how knitting has played an important part in the way society has viewed women and how women have viewed themselves. Assembled from articles in magazines, knitting brochures, newspaper clippings and other primary sources, and featuring reproductions of advertisements, illustrations, and photographs from each period, No Idle Hands capture the texture of women’s domestic lives throughout history with great wit and insight".484p. illus. Clean tight coy. but someone clipped par of the dj,. now laid in together with sheets of notepaper from a previous owner.. 1st US Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Parts of DJ Laid in.
