One thing I am grateful for about the knitting and crocheting community is how helpful and generous most knitters are. There are tons of websites (there are a lot, and if the information on these blogs could be weighed I am sure it would be TONS!) that have been devoted to sharing tips and helpful hints in the craft of Knitting and Crochet. If you have a question, a quick Google or Bing search will pull up many answers to your questions.
But I have to say, I do have to be cautious and picky about which blogs I read and who I can trust to glean information from. I hate saying this, just because some one has a blog or a YouTube account does not mean they know what they are doing.
So when I find a website or a resource, that was created by a certified Master Knitter, I think I have struck gold! And I did when I found Arenda Hollady.com
Arenda Holladay is a TKGA Master Knitter, and the instructor of the TKGA Basics, Basics, Basics! Correspondence Course. As an instructor, she gets a first hand look at common knitting errors. And she sees a lot frequently asked questions on the TKGA Ravelry Group. So she gets a pretty good feel for the common trouble shooting needs of other knitters out there.
So to help out, she has created a blog to offer tips and trouble shooting advice. Each weekly blog post has a tip of the week, with photos and videos to help show the common errors and how to correct them.
She also gives us little glimpses into her daily life as a knitter and a normal human being. Complete with more pics of course! Her recent FO of socks that she knit up for birthdays are simply amazing. I am especially loving this pair
Her blog is updated only about once a week, so it is easy to stay caught up on, and is really easy to read. I have this one in my bookmarks, and I recommend you bookmark it too!
What are some of your favorite blogs and helpful websites?
Until next time, Have a StitchTastic Day!
