The Rebel Within

Well, who knew that knitting is all about the inner rebel? Today's Guardian has a supplement devoted to the recent upsurge of knitting. Rebel Knitter suggests some reasons why knitting is so fashionable among the 20-35 age group. There's also a cute supplement of patterns by Mazzamatazz.

If you can't get hold of a printed copy, the interview and most of the supplement is available online.

Did you see this article by Steven Wells, also in the Guardian? He completely mocks the idea of "rebel knitting." He's obviously a bit of an idiot--can't even spell "crochet" correctly--but this column started a huge thread on Ravelry under the heading "Stop Knitting Hate." Personally I thought it was kind of hilarious.

I hadn't seen that article. It's a bit sad really.

Are you taking part in the Ravelympics?
