We know knitting is old, but exactly when and where did it start? How did we go from sticks and string to interchangeable needles, microfiber, and Ravelry? In this entertaining lecture, we'll trace the history of knitting from the first known knitted objects to medieval guilds through industrialization and into the present day. Understanding more about the history of the craft will make you enjoy and appreciate your own knitting more.
