Kate from the UK sent me an e-mail about a blog she likes. It is called Angry Chicken. It is a craft blog but has a great section on knitting.
You may want to check out the rest of the site if you are into other things like sewing, quilting, drawing. The Angry Chicken covers it all!
The hilarious You Knit What? Blog pokes fun at those outrageous knitting patterns that yarn companies put out to promote their yarn. The first time I visited this blog by punk rock knitter and knittykitty, I nearly peed in my pants from laughing so hard.
They’ve got some great pictures of ridulous patterns that are just down right ugly and the commentary that goes with the pictures is down right funny.
There is some profanity on the site so you might not want to visit if that kind of thing bothers you.
They avoid mocking individual knitters and stick only to national publications/yarn companies that published patterns/online zines.
Hopefully I won’t get to much negative feedback on this review but I have to agree with punk rock knitter and knittykitty, who wants to waste their time knitting ugly stuff!!!
Sara's blog for explaining knitting things.
- Not many posts but I love her writing style and explanation on knitting topics
- She explains how to use DPN and not create ladders
- How to do yarnovers and how to read a pattern that includes different kinds of yarnovers
