Learn to Knit
We are very grateful to TB Ramsden & Co. for allowing us to use their wonderful How to Knit lessons.
Knitting is an ancient craft with a long and well-documented history. Queen Elizabeth I is known to have worn knitted stockings and there are many items on display in museums worked in fine yarns with an almost unbelievable intricacy. Nowadays knitting is a more practical craft, geared to today’s busier lifestyles. This doesn't mean however that the craft has lost any of its fascination, and there is tremendous satisfaction to be obtained from the successful completion of a knitted project!
