Why Learn to Knit?

We know that what is going on in our world and in our communities is not easy at the moment – especially for those who are facing long stretches of isolation and uncertainty.  But we also know that there is a simple and comforting way to turn the unexpected time at home into a wonderful opportunity to knit, become creatively active and bring some focus and calm to your day.  So we encourage you to pick-up sticks again, to teach your family, and to learn yourself if you haven’t yet had the chance.

We encourage you to stay home, stay calm and stay healthy.  We hope where possible you can use your time for good, perhaps less digital and more mindful.  Focus on healthy, engaging activities and learnings … and we wish you all the best during this stressful time.

    So easy to knit and has so many uses. Was great when walking or skiing. Would start with it on my head and then move to neck as the day warms up.

    This was my very first ever knit kit. Thanks to the support and quick responses when i was stuck and the how to videos that were so easy to follow, I was able to finish my first ever knit. I opted for the everything included kit. The needles are so lovely and compact enough that I could take it with me wherever I went. The quality of the wool is so beautiful and easy to knit with and the warmth was equal to a hot milo on a cold day.
