The Knitty-Gritty

Saturday is the 2nd Annual World-Wide Knit in Public Day!

This is a great opportunity for knitters to get together and have fun. Go to the website to see if there's a WWKIPday group meeting in your area, and get to know some of your local knitters!

It's also a great chance for new knitters to get started started. At the risk of revealing my own obsession with crafty things, here are some resources for beginners and advanced knitters alike:

Knitting Help: a page with free videos showing knitting techniques.

Knitty Magazine: an online knitting magazine, with free patterns and useful "purls of wisdom." (yuk yuk yuk)

Learn to Knit: the Craft Yarn Council of America's page with illustrated knit and crochet instructions.

And for Harry Potter fans: the definitive house scarf pattern!

What are you waiting for? Get knitting!
