Knit your fashion style!

Dec '06
Domestic arts of knitting and sewing are no longer considered as the lonely female chore as has come up as a hobby among the affluent class.

Even Hollywood celebrities like Julia Roberts, Sarah Jessica Parker, Uma Thurman, Madonna & Cameron Diaz are doing it. Presently knitting is the most 'in thing' in the fashion world and clubs like 'Stitch 'n Bitch' are coming up across the globe.

Stitch 'n Bitch, which promotes the art of knitting as a healthy, contemporary and creative pastime, has become a common term for modern knitting groups.

Threadymade, run by London-based Sonja Todd, a part of Todd's cross-stitch company Sewkits, organises workshops and other events to promote the word.

Claire Crocker founded the ColourFX quilting group in 1999, has created award-winning patchwork quilts and wall hangings. It has arranged its latest exhibition in June and July 2006 in London.

Research has proved that the pulse rate slows down and the blood pressure lowers while knitting. This has encouraged the knitting enthusiast to do it with vim and vigor.
