A craft group in Madison County, Mississippi is sharing its knitting skills with the younger generation as part of a weekly club.
The Canton Public Library has been running the Needles and Pins program for around a year now, McHerald.com reports, and has since become a huge success with people of all ages.
"We start all of the kids off with a ball of red heart polyester yarn and needles we made of wooden dowel. It's all free, and they don't have to go out and buy a lot of stuff to get started," explained Jaclyn Lewis, youth services director for the Madison County Library System.
Around half a dozen children between the age of eight and 12 gather once a week, however, anyone is welcome to attend and learn to knit a variety of items.
These include fingerless gloves, scarves and also fizzy drink can covers.
The programme follows a renewed interest in knitting, crocheting and other needlework, as well as a survey from the Craft Yarn Council last year, which showed that one in ten people have taught someone else to knit or crochet.
Ms Lewis told the publication that there has been a huge demand for learning woollen crafts, especially with such a wide variety of colourful yarns and exciting books.
"There are a plethora of different types of yarns and books available. Many of the books have fashions targeted at the younger generation," she explained.
Other plus points of knitting and crocheting include the fact that they are both incredibly portable, meaning they can be used on the go and projects can be finished on public transport or even on a bench in the park.
Mississippi is currently experiencing an explosion in craft interest, with groups cropping up all over Madison County in particular, catering for a range of abilities and age groups.
This includes church clubs, after-school meet-ups and weekly community groups.
