Today, I'd like to share a few favorite knitting sites.
Down Cloverlaine - is a wonderful source of baby bibs and matching facecloths. Elaine is a generous designer and offers her wonderful patterns free. On the right side of her blog, check out the long list of bib and cloth patterns. I've knit many Simple Garter Stitch bibs over the years. The posts are here and here. If you need a darling baby gift, I know a bib/washcloth set from one of Elaine's patterns would be a big hit!
TECHknitting - this site has more information about knitting than you could ever possibly use. Spend some time browsing the blog to see what I mean. I know you will bookmark it.
Knitty online magazine - a great source of patterns and articles about knitting and designers. They also have a wonderful blog: Knitty Blog
Ravelry - if you haven't joined this site, consider joining. It has more resources that I can even begin to mention: free patterns links, the opportunity to connect with like-minded crafters around the globe, pages to record projects and project notes, a needle inventory (knitting and crochet), etc.
Knitting On the Net - library of knitting stitches and some free patterns.
Random Stripe Generator - a fun site for playing with color.
Berroco Knitting videos - for viewing old or new to you knitting techniques.
Knitting Pattern Central - lots of free patterns, listed by category
Patterns Galore (better have a LOT of time to browse. Some links are broken, but it still is a wonderful resource)
Lion Brand - lots of free patterns (you will need to register to have access)
