I don’t know why a lot of knitting-related videos have popped up in my newsfeed recently, but I thought they might make a good watchlist for those of you who like to watch things about knitting while you are knitting. Some of them are kind of old but all are worth your time.
First, have you seen the video of the cake with knit icing? This is amazing, and I’m sure it took forever, but it’s beautiful and actually doesn’t look that hard if you were willing to put in the time. The knitting is made by twisting strands of sugar paste together, then placing ones twisted in opposite directions next to each other to give the effect of the vs of knitting. Spectacular, and fun to watch, too. (From Cakes for Show, via Knit Hacker.)
This one is a few months old, but I think I missed it the first time around. The Secret History of Knitting is a 46 minute long video talking about the history of knitting and what it means to be a knitter in this day and age. It was produced by Makeful, and I haven’t watched it all yet but it is fun.
And the last one I know I have seen and shared before. It’s just a lovely little video called Knit Me Some Happiness, about what happens when a group of friends gets together and makes something, then has a picnic in a field of sheep. I promise it will make you smile, if for no other reason than the guy knitting in the bathtub.
Have you seen any great knitting-related videos lately? I’d love to hear about them!
