My wrists are finally improving and I've been able to knit a little bit again. It seems my wrist problem is linked to my posture, so if I fix my posture knitting should be fine!

One book I came across in my search was this book from 1908 put out by Columbia Yarns. There are a range of great patterns in this book. These are a couple of my favourites:

I've never actually knitted a pattern from before 1920, but I may have to give one a try. I love knitting from vintage patterns. Any other knitters into vintage patterns? What is the oldest pattern you've worked from?
