From knitting on a crowded bus to pearling in a local pub, the public knitting craze has found its way to Scotland. But is it just a fashion fad or does it say more about our way of living than we could imagine? This little knitting circle has been running for over two years and despite minimal advertising, people are finding their way to the venue mainly by word of mouth. Some pop in for only one session, others have been coming every week from the start. Each person has their own reason for attending and for most the knitting becomes almost a secondary reason for having a glass of wine, socialising and sharing life stories.
