Beginners Knitting

in Needle

The History of knitting is mostly a big mystery, guessed at from fragments kept in museums around the world. Knitting is made of wook, silk and other fibers that decay rapidly, even under perfect conditions; kniting needles are essentially sharpened sticks. in the past when spinning was all by hand and much more time consuming, manysweaters that didnt fit were ravelled and re-knit. Yarn wasn't discarded until wore out. Not many people in the past thought to save their everyday items for their descendeants, and there aren't many useful knitted objects left for us to find, all these year later.

Linguistically, all evidence implies that knititng is a fairly recent invention. There are no ancient gods or goddesses who knit, no legend of how it was invented or given by the gods. That lack implies that it is a recent recent skil, developed after mythologies were established around the world.the Ocxford Unabridged English Dictionary also reveals that term "to kint" wasn't added to english until the 1400s. Further poking around will reveal that any term meaning "to knit", specifically mke loopes with with two long, straight needles, wasn't in any European language before the Renaissance. Other than the Middle East and Spain other palces in the world were even later in their assigning word for knitting.
