I have noticed we have quite a few knitters on GN and on another thread they are talking about knitting patterns.
Now this is my personal view, which I suspect is unfair to knitters, but whenever I see anyone in a hand-knitted sweater I think they could have bought something some much nicer in a shop.
Do knitters knit because:
they like doing something with their hands.
they prefer the look of hand-knitted items
it's cheaper than buying machine knitted items
they are knitting for charity (I like this reason)
Finally many years ago my mum knitted me a green sweater with a crew collar and I loved it.
