Knitting needles of fame

“The first rule of knitting club is. . . . don’t talk about knitting club.” This phrase from a Reed Midnight Theater lampoon was cited in the fall 2002 issue of Interweave Knits magazine, a contemporary journal on knitting. A reporter for the magazine was researching a story on how campuses are now “crawling with knitters,” and she went online and discovered junior Laura Birek’s Paideia knitting class. Birek, a theatre and literature major, is featured prominently in the article (“the late-night knitter”). Also mentioned is Reed’s Harry Potter Reading Club, which they say boasts several avid knitters who churn out scarves in red and gold, the colors of Gryffindor House.
