One thing that I love about knitting is the sense of community. Knitters have an instant connection with each other and love to share their work with one another.
There's nothing more inspiring than seeing other knitters' great work. The amazing thing about social media is that it allows for individuals to connect with each other even when they aren't in proximity. You no longer have to go to your local yarn store or wait until your knitting group meets to get inspiration and connect with other knitters, you can just hop online.
That is why I decided to start the Instagram account knittersoftheworld. On this account I feature, you guessed it, knitters on Instagram from all over the world. It is meant to connect knitters with one another to provide a sense of community and inspiration for knitters everywhere.
I've been so amazed by the knitters I've featured so far. It is so fun to look at their work, read their back story, and even find some new knitting resources like blogs and shops! I've gotten really great feedback about the account so far and I'm sooo excited to see where it goes!
