I don't think it matters why people learn to knit. If they enjoy it for some reason, it's probably not hurting anyone else for them to do it.

Exactly...

I doubt all the cool kids will decide to pick it up since this model is sitting there with knitting needles

I also notice a lot of home-type catalogs (like Crate & Barrel) have pictures of baskets filled with beautiful yarn. I love that knitting is so popular right now! It just means that I can find everything I need SO easily!! And I love that so many people are excited to learn. I am starting a knitting circle in January and even invited people that don't knit. They have already RSVP'd to come!

I just got that catalog too. They had a lot of good "inspiration pieces" for projects. Of course, OUR stuff looks way better

KNitting is very IN right now...I think the whole "trend" started when celebrities decided to tell they were knitters... :rollseyes:

On a positive note, I think that the "hipster" it gets, the cooler patterns we find!

Exactly--I'm always trying to figure out how I could make those things myself! Usually they're a bit overpriced.
