Old-Fashioned Distraction

Once a “grandma” pastime, knitting becomes a stylish hobby

Implications - Although traditionally considered an activity for grandmothers, knitting is quickly becoming an avant-garde hobby. Generation Y-ers are grabbing knitting needles and embracing crochet, perhaps due to the irony knitting represents. In addition to crochet fashions, today’s crochet pieces often bear a humorous form, including food, animals and pop culture characters.
