This whirlwind tour of our Canadian knitting heritage will also include discussion of men in knitting and the impact of the World Wars.
Finally, Christopher talks about some of our country's most prominent knitting companies as well as the current state of knitting; popular Canadian brands, Canadian designers, Canadian Mills, as well as popular Canadian fibre.
