I know I am not alone when it came to finding out who the patron saints of knitting were. One Catholic knitter/blogger told me it was St. Dymphna. For those of you who would like to learn more about saints and knitting, there is a good post up at the Pious Sodality of Church Ladies. Knitting With the Saints
One of my favorite saints is reported to have been a knitter...and he was a man! His picture is above.
