To follow will be reviews of great knitting books, blogs, online yarn stores, patterns, etc. Feel free to send in your ideas for future issues: contact us at

If you’re seeking inspiration, then the selection below is sure to get creative juices flowing.

  • By far the most comprehensive and inspiring site I’ve found is It has tons of patterns, and if you rummage in their archive, many interesting articles on the art of knitting and related weird and wonderful subjects.

  • Donna Wilson has the enviable life of being a knitting artist and her work has been featured in everything from Elle Decoration to Vogue.

  • Ace Chick’s site is inspiring because of the sheer volume of items she produces. featuring contemporary projects, she turns her hand to everything from funky cabled hats, to striped socks, chunky scarves.

  • Finally, and its not strictly knitting,Six and a half stitches, with its beautifully sparse design, is an online showcase for this girl’s extraordinary talent for sewing, photography, crewel-work, and über funky embroidery.
