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!

If you're in Seattle, visiting, or just a pacific northwesterner by association, SMWK is still going strong. We have started a weekly Saturday morning meetup at Kaladi Brothers Coffee on Capitol Hill, and we are still meeting in the evenings on 2nd and 4th Thursdays.

To check our calendar, or just to keep up with your Seattle knitting friends, join our Facebook and Meetup groups.

Pre-course introductions

"The Knit Stitch"
"The Purl Stitch"
"Garter Stitch"
"Stockinette Stitch"

menknit.net zine?

hey all,

i stumbled into the inaugural issue of menknit.net's webzine from fall of 2005, but can't find any other issues. the first one came through a link on a ravelry pattern, and had to be accessed via the wayback machine or web archive:

or with preview http://preview.tinyurl.com/mtq8kwy

if anybody's got information on more issues, i'd love to know. thanks!

knit 5, purl 10, knit 5, slip 2 purlwise

you could instead just:
