Book Preface

As knitters, we’ve heard many reasons for why people want to learn to knit: “My grandma used to do it, and I’ve always wanted to learn”; “I just retired and need something to do with my spare time”; “I have lots of little kids in my family, and I want to be able to knit things for them”; or “It’s always looked like fun, so I thought it was time to try it out!” Whatever your reason, one thing is certain: When you’re a knitter, you’re part of a true community of people who are passionate about what they do. Knitters have a passion for the process of knitting, a passion for the fiber they knit with, and a passion for the final product.

Knitters like to share this excitement with other knitters. Knitting has become the new social gathering activity for people young and old. Groups of knitters get together in cities and small towns to have drinks, watch a ball game, or even cruise to Alaska. You can even partake in World Wide Knit in Public Day! But knitters also share their thrill for knitting with the world. In some cities, you often see the work of local “yarn bombers” who have decorated property fences, lamp posts, and tree trunks with knitted fabric. These random acts of knitting are meant to improve the concrete paradise and share the beauty of this fiber art.

Needless to say, you can hardly go anywhere in the world without encountering someone knitting. It’s the thing to do! Now is a great time to learn to knit. With the wonderful communities available online and at local yarn stores, the amazing number of lovely and imaginative yarns from which to choose, and so many stylish and sophisticated patterns to work with, the sky’s the limit for your knitting.
