True happiness comes from the joy of deeds well done, the zest of creating things new.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
It's been a great month for new knitters at Little Red Mitten. The number of young people who want to knit - for a new baby, for themselves, or because their friends have inspired them, continues to grow.
It seems that when more people knit, more want to learn. Non-knitters watch the relaxed faces of those who knit ...and they want to go to that place, too. And what could be more exciting than jumping into a hobby so full of possibilities, designs, colour, texture and cosiness?
So what prompts people to want to learn to knit? Is it the popularity of handknitted garments? Is it the desire to carry on a tradition? Maybe it is mankind's innate need to create. Or is it all about the comfort of creating something with love for someone you love?
What do you think?
