Scarves. Hats. Leg-warmers. They line store shelves and are a fixture on college campuses when the weather turns cold. Many don't realize that they could knit their own scarves, hats and leg-warmers for much less money.

Learning to knit is easier than you think. The purpose of this site is to introduce people to the craft in a fun and approachable way. You don't have ot have any previous experience with knitting or crafts in general. If you're here because you want to learn a fun and efficient craft, you're in the right place. Before you know it, you and your friends will be exchanging your favorite patterns and showing off your favorite projects.

And with the holiday season coming up, nothing makes a better gift than something that will look good AND keep someone warm. Plus, knitting a gift by hand shows you really care and can be more personalized than any store-bought gift.

Have fun and explore. Knitting isn't just for grandmas anymore.
