Knitting Websites

Knitty.com:  

This is one of the best, if not the best, websites for patterns, how-to explanations, inspiration, etc.

 

craftzine.com blog knitting archive

This is the Craftzine link to the knitting archive.  You can search this for specifc projects or you can browse.  The links will take you to the websites of the creators of some very creative projects and once on their website, a window into their world!

 

The Dulaan Project

is a cooperative effort of Mossy Cottage Knits, Flagstaff International Relief Effort (F.I.R.E.) and Kunzang Palyul Chöling (KPC) Buddhist community. It provides hand-knit items and fleece blankets to the impoverished people of Mongolia, where it rarely gets above freezing on winter days, and where the temperature can often reach -40°F at night. To survive, many of the homeless live in the heating ducts below the nation’s cities.

Interweave Knits:  

Free patterns in the projects section.  

 

Mason Dixon Knitting:

For the blog between Ann and Kay.  It's not what you think.  You have to read the book and then you will get hooked.  

Read the Mason Dixon KAL (knit-a-long) and you really will be hooked...

 

Yarn Store Knitting Forum:

Lots of links to lots of sites.  I am just starting to explore this one.

    

Magknits:  A bi-monthly free online knitting magazine.  Not as good as Knitty.com but has some good features.  This is the site where I got the pattern for the Sophie bag.

 

Knitters Review:

A free weekly online magazine for knitting and fiber enthusiasts.  They have a lively forum and lots of good information.

Where to Buy and Sell Handcrafted Items      

Etsy.com
