General information: Knitting
"In through the front door, Once around the back, Peek through the window, And off jumps Jack."
Bring back memories? Many rhymes, and the stitching skills they taught, have been passed down through the years. You probably have a favorite of your own.
Though knitting basics have remained the same, today's knitters are blessed with an abundance of beautiful yarn and fiber choices like never before. Technology allows manufacturers to produce machine-spun yarn with the natural look and feel of homespun, yet the easy-care qualities of synthetics. There are specialty and novelty yarns -- even yarn with a memory!
You may be a beginning knitter learning the basic stitches or an intermediate knitter who has advanced to more difficult pattern stitches working from patterns and graphs. Perhaps you are an accomplished knitter who has mastered difficult procedures and are inspired by complex patterns. No matter what your skill level, the finish is the same -- "Knit yourself over, Invite your friend, too, Leap frog over, Lie down, Sue ...!"
