Knitting. You’re either a seasoned pro or wondering what all the fuss is about. Yarn. Needles. Stitch this. Purl that. What’s it all about? Whether you’re accustomed to the clickity clack of knitting or looking to venture into crafting for the first time, today (June 8) is the day because London will be flooded by knitters taking part in World Knit in Public Day. To celebrate, the crafty enthusiasts over at loveknitting.com have joined forces with Rowan to bring a series of classes to London’s St Pancras International station starting at 10am. Everything from knitting basics to textured knitting will be taught giving beginners the perfect opportunity to cast on to the trend for the first time. Not feeling inspired? Well you soon will be, as we thought we’d share some of the weird and wonderful things you can do with little more than a couple of sticks, some string and your hands. Carly-Ann Clements

Something huge!

But, then again, small’s good too

The smaller the better

And it can solve some of life’s problems, like cold hands

Or being embarrassed when you eat

Or when you watch porn

But most of all, it creates fun

And ironic laughter

And more colour than you could ever imagine

So remember, knitting isn’t just for old women and cat ladies
