Rebecca Rupp offers some great ideas in her HEM March- April 2007 Good Stuff Column, Knitting, Mittens, Math and More.
While reading the column I learned that “Knitting is in” and that “about 33% of women knit- up from 12% in 2002″. I also learned that www.MenKnit.net offers a history of knitting that states that the art of knitting originated with men? Rebecca goes on to share many great knitting resources, including some online. One of those I have been enjoying is Thomasina’s Gide to Geeky Knitting. As Rebecca points out in her article, “This site takes kintting to the sciences, with a plate tectonics scarf, an assortment of kinitted dinosaurs and nautilodids, and a great knitted DNA model.
