There will be no knitchat on Nobember 23rd. Instead join Anastaciaknits as she hosts RockandPurl for an hour of knitting bloopers and funny stories on November 30, 2013. As a technical editor and designer, Rockandpurl has seen it all. Don’t miss her wonderful stories and bring a few of your own to share. This is the last scheduled #knitchat. Let’s go out having a blast!

October 26, 2013 - Taming Variegated Yarns

Working with variegated yarn is a subject of great interest to many knitters and crocheters. Variegated yarns look so pretty in the ball or skein but often don’t work up the way one might expect. Show off your “pooling” nightmares. Bring links to your favorite project photos, patterns and success stories. Let’s #knitchat together and whip those colors into shape this Saturday at 11:00 am Eastern / 8:00 am Pacific / 4:00 pm BST.

Our Photographing Crochet and Knits discussion with guest designer Anne Kuo Lukito is being rescheduled. Stay tuned.

October 5, 2013 - Knitting and Crocheting for Men

The topic for #knitchat on Saturday, October 5th is knitting and crocheting for men. Why do many of us find it difficult to make things for men in our lives? What are the important things to consider when taking on a project for a guy? Have ideas and links to share or need some tips? Plus, no discussion about knitting/crocheting for men would be complete without talking about the “sweater curse.”
