I just read this article, and wonder what you think about the questions: Why are crocheting and knitting experiencing a huge comeback right now? Why are so many young(ish) people learning how to crochet and knit?
The article mentions the following possible factors: Celebrity stitchers like Julia Roberts; 9/11 (Sheila Weinberger also mentioned this in our interview with her in the October/November '04 issue); getting over the generational rejection of stitching in the '60s and '70s; funky new yarns and materials.
Do you prefer any one of these reasons over the others? Is there a different factor you'd add to the list?
