News, articles and trends from the world of knitting
Knitting is now part of street art. Like youngsters with sprays, artists knitters change the look of the urban environment with needles and yarn in hand.
The idea came from the self-taught knitter Magda Sayge, the founder of the Knitta Please movement, or just the Nita. It all starts with a pink knit case that she used to cover the handle of her boutique door in Houston. The merry warm "pack" on the door handle attracted the passers-by, and became a source of many smiles.
Martenitsa, also known as marrinka, marta, martyka, gadalushka, kitchinka, is a ritual decoration of twisted threads that are put on March 1 for health. Martenitsa is a small ornament made mainly of wool or cotton yarn in two basic colors - white and red, which Bulgarians give to each other every year on March 1 - Baba Martha.
