1. No one knows the actual origin of knitting. Most probably hand knitting was not invented at one time and place.

2. The term “to knit” wasn’t added to English until the 1400s. One of the earliest known examples of knitting (formed on two sticks by pulling loops through loops) were a pair of cotton socks found in Egypt from the first millennium A.D.

3. Knitting was initially a male-only occupation. One of the early knitting unions founded in Paris (in1527) did not allow women as members. How society evolves! Today women rule the craft of knitting.

4. Knitting machine was invented in 1589 by an English clergyman, William Lee during the reign of Elizabeth I. The knitting machine changed the way we think about clothing and fabric; the business of making clothing transferred into small cottage industries, making hand knitting non-essential, a leisure activity.

5. Knitting can reduce heart rate, blood pressure and it relaxes, so that the body can fight illness better. It’s been proven!

6. It’s only in the modern times that knitting needles are made of metal or wood, but back in the days they were made of far more exotic materials, such as ivory, tortoise shell or bones.
