50 Times People Mastered The Art Of Knitting And Shared Their Creations Online

With sheer horror I remember the moment we had to make our own knit “couture” in home ec class. It could be anything, from a tote bag to a pair of socks, or a scarf, or a tiny doll… the list goes on. I thought that a knitted bow tie for Father’s Day was a great idea, but expectation vs reality hit and the final result looked like a pastel wool blob asking to be tacitly discarded.

That’s when I came to the conclusion that not everyone is born a knitter, and our grandmas are the blessed souls. But some people are willing to enter the knitting game, or should I call it a league, and make needlework great again.

And oh boy, they do. Thanks to the r/Knitting subreddit, which is all about “warm, fuzzy, sometimes tangled” stuff, people from all walks of life can now proudly show their mad knitting skills, and some of it is surely leaving everyone in awe, from handmade ponchos to socks and sweaters that put all the mass-produced knitwear to shame.

Knitting used to feel like something made for granny souls. But the times are changing and as the world is shifting towards a more sustainable lifestyle, slower consumption, and homemade goodies, knitwork is back in the much-deserved spotlight.

These days, knitting has become a DIY fashion statement, community activity, educational device, and healthcare tool, so it’s fair to say it’s having a renaissance. “It’s about bloody time,” American-born textile artist Kaffe Fassett told The Globe And Mail.

However, he added that “It has taken people a long time to appreciate that sitting down and rubbing two sticks together with a string of yarn between them not only creates something beautiful and truly creative, but is one of the most life-enhancing activities around. It just makes you feel good.”

In addition, knitting is back under the fashion radar too. Vogue has just released an article “Clingy, Stretchy, Meshy—This Spring Is All About Second Skin Dressing.” Turns out, due to the pandemic, we all grew accustomed to a more casual wardrobe. But designers and fashion aficionados are aware that the age of sweats is coming to its sunset.

So, “spring 2021’s knitwear and ready-to-wear trends offer an easy transition out of it,” writes Madeline Fass. According to her, the three new big knitwear trends are clingy sweats, mesh pieces and stretchy suits.
