Knitting and knitwear have long been a source and symbol of succour and comfort. Knitwear is literally woven out of generosity, domesticity, nurture, childhood and intimacy. The craft is strongly tied to maternalism and tender love. Knots in twine tie two hearts together, warm jumpers evoke warm feelings, and dutifully-knitted socks wait at home when lovers come in from the cold. They all stem from a time roughly to when knitting and femininity were more closely entwined than today reinforced by the image of the companionable cat, with its associations with both knitting and domestic femininity.
