WWW: digitized archives for hats & chromatics; meet purl - knittyBlog
Want to view an archive of vintage hats without going outside? Now you can because the Minnesota Historical Society has unveiled a vast digital archive. Stephanie Olson, a Minnesota Historical Society collections associate has digitized 717 women’s hats from their massive collections, making images of their brims and grand embellishments available to the public. Continuing in the digitized archive theme, “Chromatics” (1817) describes an early color system stressing harmony & analogy, including the relationship between color and music! (h/t Jillian!) Meet Purl… the star of a new pixar short. Knitty is for everyone. Are you interested in getting your pattern or tutorial published in Knitty?
