Knitting: One of Life’s Simple Pleasures

The Craft of Art Knitting

With Fall fast approaching, sweaters come out of the closet and my thoughts turn to one of my favorite winter pastimes, knitting. Since I work for a knit wear company you may be asking yourself, "Why bother?…Just buy something!" Trust me, I buy my share of Peruvian sweaters. The truth is that Peruvian Connection sparked my interest in knitting because of the parade of beautiful hand-knits that I see day in and day out. So I asked my mother-in-law to teach me and I made a really mediocre scarf! However, I was hooked. For me the actual craft of knitting is an enjoyable form of insanity that I can’t help but indulge for myself.

After knitting for a couple years, I have gleaned a few hard-learned pearls of wisdom that I am eager to share with the budding knitter. So if you also feel the urge to learn the craft of knitting this season, then join me over the next few weeks and we will expand our skills together.

    I am a thrilled to see your interest in knitting! It is truly the most pleasurable way to pass time and get books read, movies watched, laundry done etc. I make handbags and then I felt them. I sell them 4 times a year and it thrills me that people want what I have created.

    It’s nice to know there are others who share my excitement for knitting. I’m sure those who buy your handbags can sense the love and creativity that went into making them. Although I haven’t tried it, I think felting is a beautiful technique and welcome any suggestions for a first-time felter.
