“Basics of knitting”

Crafts of textile processing

Knitting is one of the oldest crafts of humanity that survived to this day. It has probably survived because the technique is very simple and allows to implement a variety of ideas. A certified artisan has published some books that teach the techniques and the subtleties of knitting, but she also loves to teach in person. It is no secret that live communication engages much more.
