New series alert! This semester, our blog will be featuring posts about the history and culture of knitting and crocheting. From Fair Isle Sweaters to Japanese Amigurumi, yarn has a very diverse following all over the globe. Since New York is the center of the universe, you shouldn’t have to travel to the ends of the earth to learn about them – although if anyone wants to go on a whirlwind world tour to hit up fiber capitals, that’s something we at GYI! can definitely get behind.
We can travel by sheepback!
Speaking of activities we fully support, if any Columbia University fiber artists want to write a post to be featured on this blog, drop us a comment below or send an email to email@example.com. It can be a single post, a semi-regular series, or whatever your little yarn-lovin’ heart desires!
On a related note, if you want to share any completed projects or in-progress projects, do send in pictures and pattern details along with anything you want to say about the piece. For example:
Hi my name is Friendless Baxter, I’m working on a large knitted owl as a gift to myself, and here’s the link to the pattern: http://www.purlbee.com/2011/09/22/whits-knits-big-snowy-owl/
We’ll whip up a quick post about it, and you could be FAMOUS because of your crafting efforts!
Keep watching the blog for more posts, and happy yarning! Stay warm out there!
