Syberich Willems & Aylcke Huninga, Ebook Tooltip Ebooks kunnen worden gelezen op uw computer en op daarvoor geschikte e-readers. a story of 16th century daily living of knitters in Dutch Groningen.
Based on true, historical facts and events, Syberich Willems and Dyveke were indeed living their dramatic lives and the Huninga family is one of the oldest families recorded from 1440 onwards in the history of Groningen and its surroundings,
It has long been on my mind how people could knit professionally hundreds of years ago, particularly the silk stocking knitters with their 0.7 mm needles who were able to knit a pair of stockings in 3 weeks, including the damask motifs above the clock, knitting in rooms with very tiny windows, little daylight and by candle light?
It really kept me thinking for a long time and eventually led to the research work done for this book.
I discovered that I cannot imagine in the slightest what daily life was actually like in that 16th century, or the 17th for that matter. The clothes they wore can be seen in all the paintings and drawings of the amazing Dutch artists of that century.
But what was that everyday life really like? No matter how much I read about it and research it, it‘s still hard to imagine how they lived and worked on a daily basis back then.
When it comes to someone who knits professionally by hand for her clients, like our Aylcke, then as a designer knits myself I know all about it. This becomes clearer in the story itself as well.
After this whole story, I consider Syberich one of my knitting ancestors.
