Re: Effect of the internet on knitting

Interesting. I can certainly see how the internet can expand the reach of a hobby, but I though people could also get more involved in other online activities that rob them of the time to follow other interests. I guess that I can also report spending more time knitting due to the effect of the web....

Any chance of adding Vimeo? Topic is solved

I tried embedding a Vimeo video, but it doesn't work the way it does for Youtube.

New Knitting Machine

For all the hubbub about 3D printers leading a way into a new era of manufacturing, a third industrial revolution, and the beginnings of Star Trek replicators, we really haven’t seen many open source advances in the production of textiles and clothing. You know, the stuff that started the industria...

Re: Is knitting growing or dying?

Maybe views on growth or decline depend on what area you live in and what circles you travel in. Some of the decline in local stores maybe due to the rise of online commerce and the ability to get what we need with a few clicks of the mouse (although I do prefer to see colours in person and feel the...

Is knitting growing or dying?

Hi. I'm lilly

Hi I'm Lilly. I'm new to knitting, but not to crafts. I've been getting my hands dirty for years with any craft you can think of.
