Have you ever wondered about the origins of knitting? Stopped to think, who came up with the idea of taking two sticks and some string and making a sock? Just how old is knitting? What were the first knitted items? Wonder no more. Come learn about the beginnings of knitting through the medieval period. Learn about where knitting began and what people in the dark ages knitted. There will be pictures of pieces from the medieval age, reproductions, and patterns based upon historical pieces. All taught by a noble woman from the 1300s.
