Because I Seem To Have Knit-Related Readers
I don't knit. Sorta goes against the whole stereotype of New York librarians, but there it is. I grew up in a home full of knitting. Huge bookshelves filled with roving. Piles of skeins dyed pastel hues via a packet of Kool-Aid and a slow cooker (don't ask). I can spin on a spinning wheel if called upon to do so, but I've little to no interest in picking up a pair of knitting needles (or, if you live in New York and are cheap, chopsticks) to produce a scarf or sweater. Ain't my bag, baby.

I should point out that when it comes to pure dedication, knit-related blogs rival the kidlit blogs in terms of dedication and posting consistency.
By the way, someone commented the other day on a Harry Potter related knitting project. I don't remember the source of the comment or what it pertained to. Was it in relation to the book Charmed Knits: Projects For Fans of Harry Potter (which MUST include a Golden Stitch, yes?)? Or was it the Harry Potter Knitting blog?
