I must admit, i do love knitting. A few years ago it was common practice to see trendies all over the world whipping out their needles in cafes and bars. I must admit, portability of the craft is a positive - I can't realistically see myself at a bar with the singer machine buzzing away next to me. But my interest in the craft goes beyond fashion or trend. I find knitting to be a medium that has limitless possibilities. A few weeks ago it was knit one purl one, but when you have no prior learnings good things can come from experimentation. I think there is something to come from that, sometimes its good to unlearn, or let go, so you can experience something formally known in a new way.
