Spin doctors: The itch to stitch

Whether men like it or not, “needling women” are on the rise these days. The “itch to stitch”, a craft as old as ancient Egypt, has undergone a revival in this country in recent years. According to the Craft Yarn Council of America, an industry trade association, there are now more that 50 million knitters in the United States, and most of them are women.

It wasn’t always that way. Once a male-dominated occupation, knitters formed their first trade guild in Paris in 1527. Later, with the industrial revolution and the invention of spinning and knitting machines, knitting became a factory job.
