Knitting Boys

Rita Hayworth KnittingThe benefits of knitting and the benefits of listening to old time radio programs are not dissimilar, but they manifest themselves is opposite forms. Enjoying a radio drama is something that you can do while your eyes and hands are busy doing other things, like cleaning the house or driving a car. Knitting keeps your eyes and fingers occupied, but once you have established the rhythm of purl and knit stitches, you mind only needs to be occupied to the point of counting the stitches. This means that you can knit while engaging in a conversation, attending a lecture, riding in the car or bus, or even listening to an OTR program.

The shows in our knitting collection begin by finding humor in the less that masculine reputation of knitters. Fibber McGee uses his needles and a few balls of gray wool to create the sort of monstrosity that only Fibber McGee would create. Robert Ripley introduces us to the notion that the industrial revolution was sparked by an enterprising young man who wanted his best girl to pay more attention to him.

Rita Murray discusses the practical benefits of knitting, but this notion may actually be in dispute. Modern knitters are all too familiar with the situation where they purchase $50 worth of fine, colorful yarn and then spend dozens of hours crafting a scarf or other beautiful item, the whole time realizing that they could buy a scarf that is just as nice for around $10 in the department store.

However, this discounts the less tangible benefits of knitting. Medical science points to evidence that keeping your brain occupied with activities like knitting will help to prevent or delay the onset of dementia, it can be a channel for excess energy in youngsters, and provide a relaxing break from all the screens in our increasingly technology-driven digital world.
