Another Knitting History Podcast

Hey there! Yesterday the lovely ladies at the Stuff You Missed in History Class released an episode on Knitting’s Early History. It covers some of the same information as the last podcast we linked from Stuff Mom Never Told You, but it also adds some new information, including delving a little deeper into knitting from the British Isles. I never actively considered just how many unique styles come from such a tiny place.

I always enjoy catching the new episodes from the Missed in History podcast, and this one was especially enjoyable. I found myself nodding along as they talked about tensions, different kinds of knitting needles, and the difference in appearance between knit and purl stitches. And what a privilege it is to share in this craft, whose history spans hundreds of year.

You can find the episode here.
