Came across this tidbit and thought it was quite interesting... I wonder how they get the number??? Did anyone come knocking on your door to ask? They must have missed mine :(

How many people knit in america?
According to the Craft Yarn Council of America, 53 million American women know how to knit or crochet. Statistics for men aren't published.

I wonder how they got this number? They can't just count anyone buying yarn as yarn is used for lots of other things.... ??? Just wondering?

Ive always wondered how they get the numbers. How do they know how many watch certain programs on tv and when there is an election, how do they project the winner when there is only a certain percentage of votes in?

Didn't you see it on the last census? There was a box right under age and race for "knitter" or "non-knitter"? Just kidding!! One does wonder how they generate these numbers. As I'm back to knitting after what was probably a 30-year hiatus, I think they missed me, too. So, knitters, are we guessing this number is too low?

Must have missed me, too..... and my daughters, and DIL's.... etc. etc. etc.

Who's doing the counting?

I think we should write a letter to the yarn council!
