Knit and crochet. Internet. Just like that, completely separate. But if you’re here it must mean that something is changing. Welcome! Discover, share and there’ll be no going back.
You’ve been knitting or crocheting for a long time and you resort to Internet on a regular basis. For example, by searching for inspiration about amigurumis or hats on Google Images, or showing interest in a pattern posted on someone’s blog or by a group on Facebook. You are starting to share your creations and are considering the idea of starting your own blog. Go ahead and do it!
You are a real knitter 2.0! Internet is partly “to blame“ for you having taken up knitting or crocheting. You discovered a virtual community where you can learn about, and share your enthusiasm for, your hobby. You are someone who sees the social networks and new technologies as allies which will help you to take your passion for knit and crochet outside of the four walls of your home. No doubt, 100% connected!
