Knitting In The News

Knitting is very popular and occasionally it even makes it into the news. Here are some knitting items that happened this week.

After the devastating earthquake in L'Aquila, Italy, there was some good news when a 98-year-old woman was found alive. She had been trapped under her bed when her house collapsed during the earthquake. Rescuers found her 30 hours after the earthquake hit. So, how did she spend her time while waiting to be rescued? By knitting and crocheting!

Or how about this for originality? One teenager in Texas knitted her own prom dress – out of coloured duct tape! And her date also made his own suit out of duct tape. She simply rolled the duct tape into a string and then knitted with it. Watch the video on CNN to see how she made her dress. Now that's being crafty!

Do you have your own crafty story that you think should make the news? Write about it below and who knows? Maybe it will!
