The knitting craze continues in my house and probably will until it's at least 65 degrees outside and there is no more excuses to be indoors. I'm currently working on my most tedious project yet, a pair of hand warmers, soon to make their debut on Picnic. If you have a case of the winter blues and want to take up knitting, here are a few of my go-to sites for tutorials and supplies.
Bluebird Knit 101 Series, knitting tutorials for beginners.
Ravelry, a free site for knitters and crocheters.
The Purl Bee, a one-stop-shop with tutorials and supplies.
Loopy Mango, huge yarn for chunky scarves or throw blankets.
If you live in the East Bay, my favorite yarn shop is Article Pract in Temescal.
