Knitting; the magical art of manipulating yarn until it resembles something amazing. The word itself derives from the word knot which itself originated from the Dutch verb Knutten. Well, history lesson aside, I think we can all agree that knitting is less of an essential these days and more of a hobby. Gone are the days where if we didn't knit a jumper then we'd freeze our extremities off, instead its 'lets knit a jumper before our Instagram followers get worried about our lack of posting activity'! Anyway, whether it's a scarf, a shawl or the afore mentioned jumper, I say just do it. As the saying (almost) goes "Knit like no ones watching" 🙂
