The internet is full of knitting related blogs, and it can be difficult to find the good amongst the many mediocre and bad ones out there.
Here are three of my favourites to get you started.
If you knit you’re most likely already familiar with Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, also known as the yarn harlot She’s written a number of books on knitting, and is known for her funny writing style.
Her book Knitting Rules!: The Yarn Harlot’s Bag of Knitting Tricks is one of my personal favourites and travels everywhere I go in digital form as a handy reference.
She also keeps a personal blog, which is equally funny and entertaining, and full of interesting knitting tips, reviews and pattern ideas.
The TECHknitting blog isn’t updated very regularly now, as the author is apparently writing a book. In my opinion though, this blog should be compulsory reading for anyone who actually wants to understand their knitting.
TECHknitter provides many, many posts, detailing a wealth of knitting techniques. She uses very clear drawings to illustrate her explanations.
What I personally really like is that she not only shows you how to do something, but actually makes it clear how and why it works within your knitting.
If you want to become a better knitter and learn to understand your knitting rather than just follow patterns, that TECHknitter is a must read.
Knit princess is actually a knitting themed web comic. Writer Alison Sarnoff chronicles the adventures of the knit princess in short black and white stories appearing once a week or so. The humour is very recognisable for any knitter.
