At one time knitting was considered out of touch, old fashioned and passé. That didn't stop me from knitting..but it wasn't easy to find yarns of interest and I guess I did knit a little less. The knitting world has changed over the years, and there is a renewed energy. Blogs, podcasts, on-line videos and classes, knitting groups, conventions and world wide travel excursions, have brought thousands of knitters together. The variety of yarns only slightly surpasses the variety of knitters representing all ages, backgrounds, lifestyles, origins and personalities.....knitting,crochet,spinning and weaving is for everyone.. I had a wonderful time at #vogue knitting live Chicago. Sharing time with friends and family.
