Men's matters – Thorsten Duit rovides details from the knitting box
Men and knitted fashion – do these two things fit together? Thorsten Duit leaves us in no doubt. On the Talk Sofa he talks in detail about the origination and development of his knitting ideas and reports from the world of needleworking men. Duit presents his book "Männermaschen" and speaks about knitting in the handcraft scene. He is also getting started digitally: he shows considerable ability with his YouTube channel and provides exclusive insights from "behind the camera".
Thorsten Duit has been knitting since his earliest childhood and can't imagine a life without wool. He already learned knitting from his grandma at the age of six, who herself knitted baby clothes on commission. He is silent about his first own creation, but his passion for yarn and needle grew over the course of his life. Relaxation is his priority. The regular movement of the needles slows things right down. He also finds it utterly satisfying to watch how a wearable item of clothing grows from a string of wool.
