Knitting is done with a pair of needles and a continuous strand of yarn., creating the familiar heart shaped stitches that make up your favorite sweater.
Knitting is probably the most well-known of the fiber arts. Everybody is doing it! There are knit groups, stitch-n-bitch sessions, and classes for all ages of people in nearly every town in America and worldwide. Online classes such Craftsy’s can improve the skills of expert knitters or help beginners get started learning.
The variety of beautiful yarns available over the Internet has opened up creative possibilities traditional knitters have never known before. Add the availability of beautiful handspun yarns from handmade markets such as Etsy, or the availability of Handspinning classes on Craftsy and equipment from The Woolery or the InterweavePress Store and your creativity can be endless.
Follow LucyEwe to The Woolery, where you can find knitting equipment and yarns.
