Friday Facts~ My Hobbies

I have taken a few days  annual leave off from work this last week to enjoy some more ME time, and apart from catching up with some much needed chores I have also had the pleasure of sitting in the sun and relaxing with one of my hobbies.. ~Knitting.~ Below is one nearly completed except for the sewing on of 4 buttons I finished this morning.

knitting Cardigan for my Granddaughter

So for my Friday Fact I thought I would look up how knitting began, I am sure you can find out more facts for yourselves and to be honest I didn’t know that much of its origin’s either until I started to click on the Net.

So when did knitting proper begin, Well I found out it dates back to the Middle ages and the Middle East, dating to the 11th century in Egypt where the yarn used for knitting would have been cotton or silk, not wool that we mainly knit with today ..

It later crossed over into Europe where between the 14th and 16th centuries its popularity spread, but still wool was not being used.. Most items were knitted using imported cotton and silks .. Fine gauges were very expensive, so knitting was done for the wealthy as stockings, shirts and jackets were made.. In Sweden it is said that King Eric owned 27 pairs of knitted stockings made from silk imported from Spain in 1566 each cost the same as his valets annual salary…Image that in todays monetary value!.

All the needles then were still often made of materials such as Ivory or Walrus tusk and were still at the time double pointed.. It wasn’t until the middle of the 16th Century that the Purl stitch was invented, apparently until then only garter stitch was used. Stocking stitch was created by knitting on the round then cutting the garment open to make it flat.

Ordinary working class people began to learn how to knit for themselves using Wool, and Cottage industries sprang up. In the Renaissance period in Europe men knitted as well as women, in fact only men were allowed to join the knitting craft guilds..

Click the Picture for the Link Shepherds would knit while tending their flocks, and Sailors would knit on their long voyages.. But it was in Britain’s Fishing villages where women knitted the now famous ‘Ganseys’ or Guernsey’s for their husbands using patterns handed down from generation to generation.

 

 

 

 

In the 19th century knitting ‘Pins’ the long bobble ended type we know of today for flat knitting were first invented, and the old English needles sizes from 1 to 26 were introduced. The higher the number the thinner the needle.. Click the picture for the link

The other day  I was knitting as my granddaughter came to visit, She picked up some yarn and I allowed her to use my crocheting hook, (( Under my supervision)) as she wanted to knit too..She only wrapped the wool around and around, but it kept her quite for half and hour. Give her a few more years as she is only yet just a little over 2 and a half she will soon be picking up the skill as I did from my Grandmother ..

Many more are finding themselves drawn to knitting and its becoming again more popular to learn how to knit.. And who knows when we may need these basic skills again in the future?

If you are new to my site you may like to see more of my knitted items Here on my Hobbies Page links..

I hope you enjoyed some of these facts about Knitting, And Do you Knit? and have you ever tried? and if you have what have been your favourite knits or failures?

I once spent a whole winter knitting a long sleeve jumper for my hubby when we first got married,He never wore it Lol as the sleeves were too long and the length too short… It took a day to unravel it, It then made my daughter and my Son two school jumpers as it was in Navy.. They did fit! Smile We live and learn that not all patterns fit our hubbies, since those days I have learnt to use my tape measure more often!!!Winking smile

Thank you for sharing one of my hobbies with me today I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I hope to now get around to returning your kind comments upon my last post

    Wow, you’re amazing. I’m seriously convinced now that those who knit are TALENTED!!

    After the orphanage & before living with my father, I lived with an aunty. She TRIED to teach me to knit but I got really tight on the needles, and frustrated and could not force a stitch!!

    Then she taught me crotcheting, and that I did while watching tv, sports, everything. I did it so easily!

    You’re talented, Sue 🙂

    what a lovely sweater you’ve knitted. i find knitting very relaxing, strangely enough the more complex the pattern, the more it relaxes me. I think it’s because it calls for enough of my attention that my mind can’t wander to other places so it truly is a rest for my ever busy mind. When my children were young, i knitted a sweater for them each Fall. Now I mostly knit afghans!

I might jsut send a copy to my mum…she loves knitting and she’d enjoy this post….although 2 broken wrists (she and a wonky ladder went down together whilst she was changing a light fitting in the garage a few weeks ago) aren’t exactly conducive to knitting right now I guess! She did say she’d got good at using her finger ends and toes though!! Not that I think she was referring to knitting! lol 😉

    Beautiful sweater that I’m sure will keep someone warm. I use to knit, sew and actually tried to do just about everything but have learned I cannot do it all as my lack of energy will not allow so I fine tuned and besides work, mostly just read, write and do my art. (Of course lately there have been house projects. Sigh) Good News! She has gotten a parttime job and hopefully it will work into fulltime soon. She will begin in a week or two. We have decided to not put the house on the market until Spring or early Summer next year. I have become to exhausted with training on a new system at work (did that for 3 months) and doing house projects so have no energy left to go forward. That said, I am so happy for you that you are able to take time away from work and create such lovely things. Thank you for the history lesson here. Blessings and Love xoxo

    I somewhat know how to crochet but not knit. When I say somewhat, this is the truth. I learned from a book once during a year when I was having some physcial problems, it was something I could do when I couldn’t move much. That year produced two very large blankets. Neither of them are square by any means as I didn’t measure, I just stiched until I felt they were done. Both cover entirely a king sized bed. 😉

    Maybe I should learn something more productive. I enjoyed this one very much and that sweater is beautiful.

        Spinning was something I always wanted to do too, Sue. I’ve only been doing it for a couple of years so I still class myself as a beginner. However, I decided that if I wanted to do something, then the time has to be NOW because the future is getting shorter! So all those things which we say ‘one day’ to, now have to become ‘tomorrow’ don’t they!

    Actually I am still waiting for my hat and scarf set that I mentioned once but hey I am not in any hurry, besides I rarely wear a scarf and hats, well I do have a couple of those black commando type hats but they don’t give me the Arnold Schwarzenegger or Bruce Willis look, not that I care 🙂 lol

    Sue, your sweaters are beautiful. No, I don’t knit. I wanted to when I was very young and remember learning to get a row done but then no one could show me what to do after that. My grandmother knew how to crochet and handed me a hook. I don’t know why she didn’t show me any more than how to do a single chain and turn it. The rest I learned over the years on my own.

    I like to give my grandchildren all my attention when they are here, but a few times, like Friday night when she slept over, I feel the need to do something creative. I pulled out a cross stitch I had just started and let her quietly work on a picture. She enjoyed watching my project take shape and has plastic canvas here with yarn and yarn needle for when she wants to stitch. They will only learn by watching us, right?

      You are so right Lois, our Grandchildren will learn by watching us.. Today has been my day for looking after my granddaughter again.. She tried on her sweater and her hat I had knitted.. She wouldn’t take them off, I still have to buy some buttons to sew on yet as its not quite finished until then.. but her hat she would not take off and wore it to the allotments 🙂 …
      I would loved to have seen your granddaughter, I used to have those plastic large hole canvas for a craft group I once ran with learning difficulties adults I had great success with them and plastic needles making pictures..
      I even was able to assist one lady make a small peg rug doormat size, I took it home and bought backing out of my own pocket and backed it for her.. She presented it to a member of her family with pride……
      Crafts are making a comeback and You are so talented in what you create and save… Will be by to visit shortly 🙂

      Smiling at the Dress in your teens, reminds me of the one i made while still at secondary school it ended up a Mini-Mini by the time I finished it.. :-D… I have only today sewn the buttons on the cardigan as I needed to purchase some buttons from town. Now I just need to press it and will add it to my knits page soon… I hope you enjoyed your time away…. Enjoy your weekend Sheila, and love and Hugs to you xox
