concept and craftsmanship.

Many knitters may not be aware of the highly developed knitting culture which exists in Japan. The range of specialist magazines (such as those published by Nihon Vogue), yarn companies, knitting schools, knitting circles, designers and galleries would probably astonish the average keen knitter in the UK.

The quality of the work in Japan is sometimes of a very high standard, and it is fascinating to observe differences in emphasis and direction that contrast that relate to differing cultural traditions. We hope that knitjapan.co.uk will result in increased contact between Japanese knitters and their fellow enthusiasts outside Japan, and help generally to improve standards of design, concept and craftsmanship.
