“Knit So As to Turn Water”

Join Rebecca Bayreuther Donohue, historian & knitter, for an ode to wool and marvel at how the sea connects us all. The knitted clothing of New England reflects maritime cultures the world over. It follows the fish, the flight paths of immigrants, and the sea-lanes of war. Rich with origin mythology and salty with sailors’ yarns, garments like nippers, half-handers, and fishermen’s sweaters each hold a romantic yet real place in our coastal history.
