This episode is focused primarily on Zimmermann’s early work with industry and how she managed a parallel track between developing her own mail order yarn and design publication business with her increasingly critical work within industry spaces and practices. Dr. Lilly Marsh shares some gems from her research, including excerpts from local newspaper articles, and snippets from “the lost document” that reveal her deepest desires for fostering a knitting community.
Dr. Lilly has shared a slideshow of images featuring EZ’s published patterns. You can find a video of the slideshow on YouTube.
Comments are welcome! You are invited to post your comment to this blog post. You may also contact Dr. Lilly via her website, Lilly Marsh Studios. Finally, there is a thread with lively chatter on the Yarns at Yin Hoo group on Ravelry.
The images presented here are a very small piece of a much larger published work, and are included here for the purpose of scholarship.
Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright. In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include—
(1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes;
(2) the nature of the copyrighted work;
(3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and
(4) the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work.
The fact that a work is unpublished shall not itself bar a finding of fair use if such finding is made upon consideration of all the above factors.

Thank you, Nancy. We are having such a good time with this series. Going into depth and detail on a project is a great stress-reliever, too. Cheers.
Dorothy, wow, you have a rich knitting history. I am watching and discussing some of the videos with one of my students, who is pursuing an independent study in knitting this year. Thank you for writing in!
