Great knitting techniques blog

Being one who loves the detail work of knitting, like choosing just the right increase or executing invisible seams, I'd like to give a shout-out to my favorite knitting blog:  TECHknitting.

The author has been blogging since 2006, giving detailed and well-illustrated explanations of a wide range of knitting techniques.  There is a detailed index of the site by topic, which comes in handy when you're looking for, say, cast-ons and bind-offs, info on ribbing, or maybe the low-down on stripes (particularly jogless stripes).

Personally, I had trouble weaving in ends until I read some her tricks.  There's even a list of ten ways to work in ends, 8 of which or as-you-go.  There's bound to be something new or useful here for everyone, from beginners to seasoned crafters.  Do you have a favorite knitting blog you'd like to share?


  1. I've been reading Stephanie's blog Yarn Harlot for years.

    Geek Crafts has everything from knitting and crocheting to sewing and jewelry making.

    And it isn't knitting, but it's just too cool not to share: Pin Tangle. Crazyquilting and embroidery. Seriously impressive.

  2. Love Pin Tangle. I did some (very little) embroidery before Ben came along, and it was a great site for inspiration.
