  • Are you interested in checking out video tutorials to "see" how to do something new?
  • And who wouldn't like to find a resource for free patterns?
  • What tools are people using to improve their experience?

Many instructional books, magazines, videos, and websites are available. It sometimes takes a lot of searching to find what you are looking for.

  • How do you know what "it" is called?
  • What does "it" looks like?
  • When would you use "it"?
  • How do you do "it"?

These are just some of the questions you may ask. Throughout this site, we will harness some of the best resources available to provide answers to questions that all of us encounter as we develop our skills.

The community of knitters are a generous lot. Many are thrilled to share their knowledge, skills, and creativity with others.

Wouldn't you like to tap into all of that talent? The internet is making that possible. You just need to know where to look!

It is my hope that keep-on-knitting.com will become a favorite place to visit where you find the answers you are looking for.

Much has changed over the years and this is no exception.

The basic stitches haven't changed, but the new techniques, yarns, needles, stitch patterns, and designs continue to enthrall people the world over.

Once considered a "domestic" skill for making practical clothing, the 21st century has seen an explosion of people picking up this craft just for the fun of it!

Grandma Knits

While nothing can replace the fond memories of spending time with Grandma while she makes the needles fly, the internet is stimulating the resurgence more than anything else.

Some of the renewed interest may be attributed in part to:

  • Design evolution from practical to fashionable
  • New colorways and fiber blends
  • Ebony, bamboo and rosewood needles

Add to that, LYS (Local Yarn Shops) offer lessons and many offer "knit nights" where you enjoy a couple of hours with new friends and pick up new ideas from the interests and skills of others. It is also a get away from the hustle and bustle of busy lives.

Knit In Public

KIPS have cropped up in many locales. Groups form and meet at a favorite public place to catch up with other knitters, learn about all the new projects people are working on, and helping each other through some of the challenges that most of us face.

Access to yarn sellers, books, patterns, needles and accessories create limitless sources for choosing the next project.

If you have ever received a hand made gift, you know the love, caring and thoughtfulness that went into the making.

From the practical to the latest fashion and style, endless opportunities await!

  • Keep the tradition alive
  • Impact the lives of others
  • Relax from hectic lifestyle
  • Exand creativity
  • Learn new techniques
  • Make new friends

With the use of internet and video technology, solutions for the curious or desperate are offered here to encourage you to...

Keep On Knitting!
