Knitting is Contagious

I recently heard that one-third of the world knits! I don't know if this means that one-third of the world knows how to knit, has knit or knits on a daily basis---but that is still an amazing statistic and that means that Knitting may be the most popular activity in the world! Knitters Rule!

In some parts of the world, knitting may still be a necessary part of everyday life, but we are lucky enough to have knitting in our lives as an extracurricular leisure activity. I can't imagine my life without knitting and I really enjoy sharing and promoting knitting with others. I sort of view Knitwits as a local knitting Embassy and Janet and the staff as knitting Ambassadors-spreading the joy of knitting with everyone we meet.

While Janet and I were at the mountain cabin, we would pick up our knitting and before we knew it someone in the room would say, "I wish I could do that" or "I used to know how to Knit" or "Can I try?". Next thing we knew, an impromptu knitting lesson would begin. By the time we left, Janet's sister Kathy, her niece Laura, our new friend Meredith and Meredith's Mother had all caught the knitting bug. Janet offered to give knitting lessons to Laura's Co-Workers on her next visit.....so, do you see how the knitting bug spreads!

For the rest of the summer (July and August), Knitwits is offering a "Refer-A-Friend Special". Get a friend or family member to take a Knitwits Beginning Knitting or "Refresher" lesson and you get a stamp on your Frequent Buyer Card!

Spread the Gift of Knit!

  1. Sounds like the "mountain cabin" would be a fun place for Knitwitters to have a sleep-over... :)
