Ready for a new hobby?
Fifty years ago every woman – and many men too – could knit. And before that, women has spent their spare time during the two World Wars knitting. In those days, being able to knit was just something that almost every female could do.
Then along came mass-produced clothing and knitting became a hobby rather than a necessity. It was no longer necessary to unwind old woolen garments and knit up the wool into something new and fashionable. And yet there has always been a number of crafters who have appreciated the value of hand-knitted garments, plus the therapeutic aspects of the creative act itself.
Today, more and more people are rediscovering this craft, especially because it has such a stylish and fashionable end result. But if you didn’t learn to knit at your mother’s knee, how can you learn today? Easy. I have found a wonderful site that runs online video courses that can teach the basics to beginners and new and exciting techniques to the more experienced craftsperson.
