Knitting as defined by Wiktionary is “Combining a piece of thread with two needles into a piece of fabric.” The word is derived from knot thought to originate from the Dutch verb knutten which is similar to the Old English cnyttan to knot. Its origins lie in the basic human need for clothing for protection against the elements. More recently knitting has become less a necessary skill and more a hobby.
Early origins of knitting
Knitting is a technique of producing fabric from a strand of yarn or thread. Unlike weaving knitting does not require a loom nor other large equipment making it a valuable technique for nomadic and non-agrarian peoples.
The oldest artifact with a knitted appearance is a type of sock. It is believed that socks and stockings were the first pieces produced using techniques similar to knitting. These socks were worked in Nlebinding a technique of making fabric by creating multiple knots or loops with a single needle and thread. Many of these existing clothing items employed nlebinding techniques; some of them look very similar to true knitting. For example 3rd-5th century CE Romano-Egyptian toe-socks. Several pieces done in now obscure techniques have been mistaken for knitting or crocheting.

There are many things that can lead to painful corns. Usually painful corns develop from friction and pressure that is localized in an area. It is for this reason that corns usually develop on the feet more specifically the toes. People who wear shoes that are too small often have painful corns develop on toes. The constant rubbing of the sides of their shoes on their skin causes a snowball effect on callus growth. What happens is that the friction causes heat and pressure this leads to thickening of the skin which then causes more pressure on the area leading to a bigger callus.
