    Here is the link for Woodland Wool Works. My personal favorite place to shop. They sell everything. And best of all they have a layaway plan you can do for larger purcheses. They also take trade-ins and sell used equipment. They are nice and very reputable to deal with.

    FYI 1 centimeter equalls .394 of an inch. It comes in handy.

    Should this thread be a sticky?

    Nope Cloverbud, there is already a sticky that contains the links to this thread and others. But thanks for thinking of it.

    Hi
    This might be interesting to sweater knitters. A free site to design Icelandic wool sweaters.
    http://knittingpatterns.is

    The site uses Silverlight from Microsoft.

    Is there a consensus on what website would be best for absolute newbies? I've tried to learn how to knit twice in the past and have failed miserably - though I'm not sure if it was my instruction so much as the yarn I was using or the needles.

    I would love to be able to knit (and sew. and crochet. and all that.) someday, but I can't seem to grasp anything these days. Ergo, kids' links would be fine, too.

    Hi MamaBoog! Welcome to The Fold. Well how about we begin with a new thread just for you and then we won't clog up this thread. I'll begin one for you so you can learn and we can teach you.
