MN Knitters' Guild was lucky that Franklin Habit was willing to stay in the Twin Cities a couple extra days and speak at the monthly meeting. Such an interesting talk on vintage knitting patterns. Not only was it historical but funny as well. Franklin wrote the book, It itches, filled with knitting cartoons and essays. His blog , The Pantopticon, is hilarious and can be found at http://the-pantopticon.blogspot.com !
