Knitting with Tash Barneveld

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:22 pm on 12 April 2019

Knitter and craft blogger Tash Barneveld joins us to talk knitting and the internet - which has helped with a resurgence of knitting.

She says without a couple of key websites, knitting wouldn't be where it is today.

They are Ravelry which was launched in 2007 by a US husband and wife team and now has  over 4 million members.

And Knitty.com which was stablished in 2002, is a free regular online magazine that encourages all knitters to submit designs and has been a place for now well-established independent designers to find their feet and allow them to be self-employed as knitwear designers.
