Knitting is making fabric with yarn using two or more needles. Loops are made on one needle as the starting point and then the fabric gradually grows by drawing other loops through them as they are passed back and forth on the needles, moving from row to row.
Knitting was mainly done on silk, wool, and other fibers that decay rapidly, even in the most controlled, most perfect conditions. Knitting needles are just an ordinary pair of sharpened sticks and could have been anything, a pair of hair picks, skewers, maybe spindles, or any of the other million uses you could think of sharpened sticks; so it’s really difficult to identify them as actual knitting needles beyond any reasonable doubt.
Knitted items in the past were all done by hand and yarn, a valuable item, was not disposed until it has completely worn out to the point of disintegrating. Knitted sweaters that do not fit anymore can easily be unraveled and re-knitted over and over again. Not many people had the brilliant idea to save their everyday items for their children. Leaving heirlooms was not a major consideration.
Because of these factors, no one really knows the exact origins of knitting. It’s all a huge mystery; and with solid evidences missing, there are not that many valuable knitted items left for us to discover. All experts, and the rest of us, can do is make intelligent guesses derived from fragments and scraps found in museums around the world.

While it’s true that knitting has not been around for very long, and that its past is quite bunched up in knots, pun intended; one thing remains. That thing which had made knitting an instant hit when it was invented and makes it popular today is its sheer simplicity. With two sticks and a ball of yarn, you can literally make anything; sweaters, gloves, socks, scarves, bonnets and hats, bags, and so much more. Knitwear is as just as popular as ever before. Even science has jumped on the bandwagon. Engineers are now using knitting techniques for metallic shields for hoses and doctors are starting to knit nylon arteries used to transplant organs. One thing is for sure; Knitting may not have a solid past but it has a bright future ahead of it.
