The Ancient Ways of Knitting

October 28th, 2014 | Filed under: helpful hints planning your visit | Posted by Elf jennifer

Up at the North Pole, elves keep themselves busy indoors; away from the whipping winds and chilly temperatures. One of my favorite indoor activities is knitting! Knitting is an ancient practice that has a mysterious background. No one knows exactly where it stems from, but historians have been able to date knitting as early as the year 1000bc in Egypt!

Knitting can be a bit tricky at first, but once you get the hang of it, it’s like riding a bike! At the North Pole us elves make hundreds of sweaters a year for boys and girls all over the world. Once you learn the ways of these ancient knots, you’ll be able to craft one of a kind gifts for friends and family!
