The Value of Knitting for an Afghan Refugee

The short documentary Stitches is the story of a man who finds peace in knitting—after establishing a life in exile as an Afghan refugee during the Soviet–Afghan War. The subject is the filmmaker Abdullah Abo Jassin’s uncle, who writes, “His story connects in a way with all what my family has been through over the past decades.”

This is a wonderful little short about machine knitting, and if I’m not mistaken that’s one of the 5mm French knitting machines made by Superba (my personal favorite) and marketed by Singer.
