Knitting: A Craft Makes a Comeback
McIntosh, Phyllis
English Teaching Forum, v49 n1 p36-43 2011
Hand knitting is one of the most popular hobbies in the United States. Once considered the province of grannies and expectant mothers stitching layettes, knitting is enjoying a 21st century resurgence, especially among young people. Knitting, it turns out, is a trendy, often eco-friendly pastime with a wide range of appeals. And, thanks to the Internet, modern knitters can share knowledge and ideas through virtual knitting circles that span the nation and even the globe. Whatever a knitter's background, interest, or skill level, a compatible knitting circle is only a click away. (Contains 4 online resources.)
