WHOA!  Whoops!  My mistake!  Please let me claify: I have no idea what position these sites take on Knitty.com, nor their bloggers feelings on its' patterns.

I simply found  the above sites to be really helpful offering patterns, techniques, and advice.
Sorry for any misunderstandings  Undecided

Alright Super Geek, you asked for it:

ww.magknits.com
is a webzine like Knitty  but comes out monthly (yay!).

http://marniemaclean.com/
This site has a bunch of cute hat/beanie patterns and also features womens tops- halters, bikini tops You wouldnt catch your grandma knitting one of these.
 
On that note: if youre surfing around just to look at the possibilities of what could be knitted, check out whiteliesdesigns.com .  Im pretty sure you have to buy all her patterns, but theyre really pretty and inspiring. 

http://glampyreknits.com/
This designer offers free patterns and patterns to buy.  Ive seen a lot of modified Ubernaturals and Bad Pennies on Craftster that look amazing!

http://knitandtonic.typepad.com/
A true *knitblog*.  I havent been following it, but her patterns look wicked cute.

http://secure.elann.com/freepatterns.asp
This site features the famous Pinwheel Sweater pattern  and some summery knits among a pretty healthy collection of freebies.

http://www.ringsurf.com/netring?ring=knitring;action=index

This webring will lead you to an innumerable amount of sites- many of them knitblogs with links to the authors pattern page.

http://www.berroco.com/pattern_library.html

A huge and easily navigable library of free patterns. 

http://www.dailyknitter.com/patterns.html
Another free pattern database which lists the patterns by type (sweater, poncho *cringe*, tank, wrap etc) and needle size.   Hmm

http://freeknittingpatterns.blogspot.com/
 Speaks for itself.

http://theanticraft.com/
I think this site is hilarious, I love its subversive humor.  It offers all sorts of crafty ideas (not just knitting).

Good luck!  Happy surfing!

15  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Mourning 'A Knitter's Gude...' on: August 16, 2006 12:08:50 PM

I'm looking to start designing my own patterns!  I recently checked out A Knitter's Guide to Sweater Design by Carmen Michaelson and Mary-Ann Davis from the library.  It is wonderful... and out of print.  I'm going back to school in a few weeks and sadly *sniff* have to return The Guide.

Does anyone have any good recommendations for other 'help this bimbo design her own raglans while she pretends to be a knitting guru books?

Thanks so much! 
16  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / LoveHateKnitty on: August 16, 2006 11:47:07 AM
So I've been surfing around the cyber-knit scene long enough to pick up on the love-hate relationship some knitters have with Knitty.com.  I'm still undecided.  Here are some Knitty originated FOs:


Here is my lovely sister modeling Kate Gilbert's Clapotis.  I was following the KAL for so long I decided I must hop on the bandwagon.


I have to make a confession about this yarn I used.  A few years ago my grandmother bought me a beautiful jewel tone variegated mohair blend poncho.  I hate ponchos.  I know, a knitter who hates ponchos?  So sue me.  I think I wore it once in three years.   And then I came across the Clapotis pattern... *lightbulb*  Aha!  I frogged the entire poncho!  (Sorry Gram!)  And knit myself a new beautiful wrap which- once it gets a little cooler (thank you very much New England summer!!) I will wear all the time.  


Cheryl Niamath's Fetching.  I think these little glove-thingys are so damn cute!

I made this pair for my sister out of a bulky weight yarn that was sweater bound but never made it.  I added the ribbon  because gauge is important (fool me twice, shame on me) and they came out a little too big.

Thanks for looking!
Question:  I want to try my hand at making /designing my own sweater. Any good book recommendations for a guide to sweater design?

your stole is so beautiful!  i haven't tried lace knitting yet (so intimidating!) but yours is an inspiration!  i'll just have to buck up and give it a shot!

These cacti are amazing!  My sister fell in love with them after a trip to southern CA a few years ago (strange but true) so my mom and I bought her a little one...  and she killed it.  So we bought her another one... and she killed that one too.  So before we risk the any more cacti lives, I think I'll just knit her one.  Thanks!
