Why knit by machine?
“Its my creative meditation’, enthused one of our students when asked why they love machine knitting. “It gives me a sense of achievement and pride, my creative side comes really comes alive”, said another.
Here at Knithub 24, we often hear feedback just like this from those who attend our classes. And it’s so true. The benefits of hand knitting are often well documented, but why would you get involved in machine knitting? What’s the deal?
Our resident tutor and knitwear designer, Farah Govani, shares her passion for her craft:
“I love machine knitting as I can be really experimental with yarns and knit structures. Some techniques can’t be achieved through hand knitting. Sometimes I design whilst on the machine; I can easily try out ideas and see the results immediately. It’s amazing to see how the same techniques can look completely different from the choice of yarn. I’m able to create interesting and beautiful fabrics and garments that started from a thought, image, place, feeling or another form of inspiration.”
We offer machine knitting classes for everyone from the absolute beginner to the more advanced. Learn a new skill and get to know other knitters as we teach you to knit on our Brother machines.
