From the quiet restraint of the Regency buildings that line Edinburgh’s George Street, you would never guess that a century and a half ago, this was the scene of a knitting revolution. Here the ladies of the city gathered to exchange “receipts,” compare their successes with the latest stitch patterns, admire vibrant new shades of yarn, and purchase pins, embellishments, and notions. Fashionable and wealthy knitters beat a path to a shop at the street’s West end, where their every knitterly want might be supplied. At number 63, they found Mrs. Jane Gaugain, author, designer and knitting entrepreneur, whose shop was the epicentre of the Victorian knitting revolution.
