Group Description

An international group of knitters interested in the technical aspects of knitting.

We encourage knitters to just do it - to try out new techniques and methods fearlessly. Many of our members
are highly experienced knitters who like to knit without a pattern,others aren't as confident, but are interested in extending their knowledge. All of them acknowledge that experience is the greatest teacher, and try to meet new challenges without fear. We don't consider garter stitch scarves or washcloths to be challenging.

You will find lace addicts, fair isle queens, aran maniacs, and intarsia
superstars among our members. We're not hung up on celebrity designers,although we know an interesting design when we see one and may even follow a pattern from time to time. We all pledge to do our best to help our fellow knitters when they ask. We expect you to have "Googled", or to sift thru the Archives, in case the question has been dealt with already.

We know that many knitting questions don't have one correct answer, and that among a variety of answers may be the one which will best answer the question for the person who asked it. We don't have many rules, but one is that if you don't know, ask. And if you do know answer politely.

The "list parents" are based in Australia, which doesn't matter except that we ask members to remember at all times that they are members of an international community of knitters, and that their lives and opinions may vary widely. That's what makes us so interesting!

Expressing opinions politely and respectfully is encouraged. Flipant Flaming occasionally occurs; rudeness isn't tolerated.
