I’m working hard on getting this blog up and running for real by New Year’s Day 2014, so I’ve been collecting links to various knitting- and needlework-related stories out there in the webverse.
Here are some stories to tease your appetite before I relaunch the blog on January 1st:
- Norway tries showing five hours of live knitting on television and it’s a hit
- The Wall Street Journal does a story about millennials learning how to arm-knit and feeling rather superior about it. Still, it looks like fun and I love to learn a new twist on the classics. Learn how to arm-knit here.
- On the importance of selling and valuing your hand-knits at a price that earns you a living wage. I couldn’t agree more. Why do we sell our craft, and ourselves, so cheaply?
- A beautiful and thoughtful Barbara Kingsolver piece on the mysticism of knitting and why we do it. She continues to be one of the best writers on knitting working today. Literature plus knitting = kniterature.
