Knitting is no longer just for grandmothers, today it's a trend for people of all ages with a huge range of possibilities as far as design and creativity go. Only a few years ago knitting began to turn a new page and appeal to young crafters, simultaneously a large array of colorful, inventive new yarns, patterns and resources became available. That means it's possible to find all the materials one wants and needs to make modern projects. Here are some other recent knitting trends:

Knitting Clubs: Thanks to the Internet and local groups that meet up in a cafe or library, knitting is available to everyone and easy to learn. It creates a unique community. EcoKnit: It's now possible to find eco-friendly materials for your design projects, for example, yarns that use non-toxic dyes and have a low-impact manufacturing process. Make Art: Take your knitting to the next level by turning it into a fiber arts project Knit for a Good Cause: Consider picking up your needles for charity, whether it's making clothing, a blanket or an object to raffle off. Your pastime can make a difference in someone's life.
