The Letter 'K' - Yet More Knitting Content

Wow, two days in a row I'm talking about knitting!!

Today I'll visit the letter K, which leads me directly into knitting. It's not something I can say I'm good at (yet) but I'm getting better with practice. At least I've reached the point where if I make a mistake the chances are now 50/50 that I'll not have to rip it all out and start again!

Here's a number of good sites for free patterns which you might like to visit if you're not already familiar with them:

- This is a Canadian site and lots of free patterns are available here

- This site lists a large number of yarn shops, mainly in Canada with links to those that have web sites.

- Lots and lots of free patterns available through this site!

- Again, all sorts of free patterns.

- A wonderful resource with tons of free patterns and really good knitting instructions

- also, if you Google search a particular brand of yarn, the chances are quite good that they have a site and more than likely have free patterns using their yarns

Knitting blogs:
- This blog is written by Kay Gardiner and Ann Shaye who are the authors of Mason Dixon Knitting

- This one is written by a male knitter, with a sense of humour

- The infamous Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, hilarious author of At Knit's End; Yarn Harlot - The Secret Life of a Knitter; Knitting Rules!; and Stephanie-Pearl McPhee Casts Off. I believe she has a new book due out in the spring with another to follow next fall and, quite possibly, a calendar too.

AND - ANOTHER K, but not knitting related is Pam is a prolific embroiderer and does the most beautiful things. Well worth checking her out on a daily basis!

Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
