“When you picture someone knitting, I’ll bet that your first thought is an old lady sat absent mindedly in her armchair with a cup of tea, maybe a cat or two. Terrible cliché, I know, but I’ll bet for a bunch of you reading this that’s just what you pictured! Am I right? Well what if I were to tell you that the history of knitting is pretty much the complete opposite? The current-day idea of knitting being a female-focussed craft are actually a pretty modern development, mostly thanks to the changing roles of women throughout the two world wars. In fact, knitting was once thought of as an exclusive gentleman’s occupation, involving rigorous testing and scrutinisation, with cut-throat competition and cold business running through its core. Pretty different to that old lady you pictured, hey?!”

Strøget: the main shopping street in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Strøget is Copenhagen’s main shopping street and one of Europe’s longest pedestrian streets with a wealth of shops, from budget-friendly chains to some of the world’s most expensive brands.

Big international brands like Hermes, Prada, Max Mara, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and Mulberry are represented at the end of the street facing up to Kongens Nytorv. If your budget is a little tighter, you will find shops like H&M, Vero Moda and Zara closer to City Hall Square. Strøget is more than shopping, however. Look up and down the side streets during your shopping spree, and you will see several of Copenhagen’s beautiful sights and attractions as well as street entertainers.

The 1,1-kilometre stretch covers the streets Frederiksberggade, Nygade, Vimmelskaftet, and Østergade and runs from City Hall Square to Kongens Nytorv square.
