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.
I am looking at producing an online knitting course. First, for beginners, but if that is successful, I could do some more advanced ones later. Looking for feedback on my list of topics for each segment. What do you think of this?
"What is Knitting?
"The Knit Stitch"
"The Purl Stitch"
Ten week course
Anyone in the Denver area, please join us for a pint and some fibre fun! http://on.fb.me/116Unow

if anybody's got information on more issues, i'd love to know. thanks!
Hello Men (and Women) Who Knit! For those who don't know, I'm the site admin. *friendlywave*
ok. rewrote the trey bracelet ( http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/trey ) pattern so it makes some sense and doesn't leave things out. but i need a spot checker or two.
is there a style of knitting, whether on regular needles, or DPNs, or circs, that lets you avoid purling, by turning the needles somehow? maybe by using dpn's and sliding the stitches to the opposite end of your needle and turning your work, etc?
i'm thinking something where if the pattern says:
knit 5, purl 10, knit 5, slip 2 purlwise
you could instead just:
