Knitting is in a major revival. Knitters have been spotted in parliament, in pubs, at the cricket. And they're not just over 50. They're young, sassy, professional women. What is going on here?..This is third wave feminism in action. The previous generation made the workplace the centre for action; ours is the home front. This is a feminism that enjoys a career but doesn't think that a career alone is enough. So we knit, cook, sew and build a better quality of life...Answering questions such as Is it ok to knit in public? Is it ok to share needles? and natural vs synthetic? Sharon Aris tells you how to knit yourself to happiness and truly embrace the world of your grandmother.
