Knitting has been around for thousands of years. The earliest known knitted garment is a sock found in Egypt that dates from the 1st Century. In a monastery in Spain, you can still see a knitted silk cushion cover that was knitted for a prince. Several paintings from the 14th century depict the Virgin Mary knitting. The popularity of knitting has come and gone over the centuries, but is now seeing a resurgence.
What makes knitting so popular? Well, knitting is practical. You can take yarn and turn it into a garment that keeps you warm. Knitting is fun. It is not that complicated to learn basic knitting and most people who try it find it a really enjoyable craft. Finally, what you can make when you learn how to knit is only limited by your imagination. You can make your own clothes that fit your own style. You can knit toys, garments, accessories, jewelry, blankets and more.
There are all kinds of yarns on the market now. You have your basic cottons and wools. There are also a variety of acrylic yarns. Some knitters tend to stay away from acrylic yarns preferring natural yarns. But acrylic yarns have a place, as they tend to be washable and won’t shrink. Whereas natural yarns like wool and cotton shrink. To get the benefits of both types of yarn, you can now buy blended yarn that can be washed, but have the look and feel of natural yarns. There is a trend right now for ecological yarn as well. Some of the newer ecological yarns are made from bamboo or corn, or from recycled material such as t-shirt remnants and recycled plastic. You can also find novelty yarns to knit alone or combine with another yarn for a distinctive look and texture. Novelty yarns include yarns that mimic fur or feathers, have pom-poms or is made from ribbon.
Knitting is a really fun, creative, sometimes challenging craft that is both magical and practical. There is a reason knitting has been around for thousands of years. If you’ve never tried knitting, you should give it a try and find out first hand why it's been around for so long.
