Message from the researcher

As a keen knitter who researches women in 20th-century British literature and popular culture, this project combines two of my greatest enthusiasms! I can't wait to analyse and share the data collected by volunteers.

With thanks to the Knitting & Crochet Guild, for allowing images from their wonderful Collection to be shared in this project.
