Congratulations are in order for our guy
Barry, President of Trendsetter Yarns has been named one of the top 10 most influential men in world of knitting for all time.
We here at Trendsetter couldn't agree more!!!
Barry was named to this list by Ann Richards, noted writer who also teaches knitting.
Other notables also named include among others were, Prince Edward VIII who popularized knitting by wearing Fair Isle Sweaters at golfing events and other public relation events in the twenties.
Charles Dickens who wrote about a woman using knitting as a code for sending messages during the French Revolution.
James Thomas Brudenell (7th Earl of Cardigan) who had
sweaters made as part of the uniform for soldiers under his command during the
Crimean War. After which, this type of sweater was named for him.
So we at Trendsetter Yarns Congratulate Barry for attaining truly mythic status in the world of knitting and for being a great Guy.
