What's a VKAL?

I haven't been on here in a while - so I'd like to say hello first! Hello!
About a month ago I had the thought of combining a class with a Knit-A-Long. As a result, I came up with a VKAL, or VIDEO Knit-A-Long. It's a Knit-A-Long with video support, so even beginners feel comfortable enough with learning a new technique.

Beginner's Knitting Course 2.0 now online

The new and improved Beginner's Knitting Course is now online! Thanks to so many of you for the input and suggestions on the first incarnation. I have incorporated as many of them as I could. I hope the result is pleasing, and a fitting tribute to the beginnings of our small knitting "tribe." Not perfect yet, but that suits me fine.

How to recyle a sweater

Hi Everyone,

I discovered, sadly, that a couple sweaters that were in storage have been attacked by moths or something, and now have large enough holes in them that they are unwearable.

Are there ways to recycle either the wool yarn or the fabric?

It's finally here!

​​I told you I was planning something for the new yea​r, and several people have been asking me about it​​. Well, here it is. I'​m excited to have finally taken the first step, but I haven't done this before, so I need some feedback on how well it's starting.

Diagonal stripes?

OK, so my daughter wants a scarf in the spirit of Wesley Crusher's sweater in Star Trek.

Site Maintenance

As promised, although delayed, MWK will be offline this Saturday while I perform some upgrades. If no one is online Friday evening, I may begin then to minimize downtime during the more active periods of the day.

Thanks in advance for your patience and Happy 10 Year Anniversary!
