Monday Magazine

My sister told me that there was a knitting article in Monday Magazine this week, at Knit Night Arika mentioned it as well. I finally tracked down a copy (it's been out since Thursday)...
...and knitting made the cover!

The article is entitled Social Knitworking and includes a long write up about the Bitchy Bees, Victoria's largest knit night group (...on Ravelry they have 266 members!). The social aspect of knitting and the modernization of the craft get me really excited. Because my life revolves around knitting, I sometimes wonder if the excitement I feel about the resurgence of knitting is something that maybe I and a few knitting friends share, but seeing articles like this make it feel very real, like knitters are everywhere and people are noticing!
