Knit Wiki - An Online Knitting Encyclopedia
I have added a link to Knit Wiki on the main page of this blog. The button is on the right hand side.
Knit Wiki is a community run knitting encyclopedia. To access this valuable source just click on the knit wiki icon. Knit Wiki is fairly new since it was created on February 2007. This online encyclopedia contains patterns, techniques, historical information, etc..contributions made by members. The creators would like all who love to knit to contribute by posting and sharing pictures of their own creations, patterns, tips or anything that would help other knitters. To participate you do have to become a member. On the main page click on the upper right corner create an account.
April's featured article is "The Baby Surprise Jacket" designed by Elizabeth Zimmerman in 1968. The unique feature about this baby all in garter stitch baby garment is that all parts (front, back and sleeves) are knitted in one piece. The pattern itself is not free; the person who wrote the article said she used the instructions from the Knitting Workshop, the book written by Elizabeth Zimmerman.
