Knitting Is In

Knitting Is In

Sweater weather, bring it on! This post is all about knitting. And I'll mostly let the pictures speak for themselves. "Some women knit for economy, some for profit, some for glory. Some women knit to satisfy the soul; to create beauty with their own two hands, to make a gift of their skill. Knitting is an art for all seasons and ages; universal, yet individual; an ancient art form, but forever new...knitting is in."

Yes, that's a young Lauren Hutton in the photo below on the left.
