Knitting inspiration

I am a massive fashion history geek so it was pretty inevitable that my knitting would be inspired by times past.  The winter dress of women in the 19th Century is particularly fascinating to me so I thought I would share some of my historical inspiration from the V&A archives with you.

I am very excited by all of the ideas whirling round my head for my new Oh Knit! collection, most of which are inspired by these kind of images.
