I thought I might share with you a list of blogs and websites that I find inspirational and I’m sure you will enjoy visiting as well. These are blogs that I like in addition to all those that I subscribe to.

The Knitting the Stash blog – this blog is written by Melissa who is an amazing knitter and spinner. She also has a podcast on YouTube under the same name. I highly recommend following both.

The blog/website of UK magazine Simply Knitting – here you will find information about the current issue, competitions, knitting related topics and you can also buy a copy of the magazine if you wish to.

  1. Hi. I really enjoyed reading your blog, thank you very much. I have recently moved to France and I am an obsessive knitter. I am trying to make sense of French knitting patterns and I am struggling with the ‘Mathématiques’ annotations. I have an abundance of translations for the terminology, but this aspect is evading me. Are you aware of any groups on or off line which I can join to help me master this dark art? Thanks in advance. Pauline
