Here's a little history.... I am a long-time hand and machine knitter. I purchased Bonnie Triola Yarns when she retired a number of years ago.
About 6 years ago, I was complaining to my friend and co-worker, Matthew Friedman (a programmer) that I was frustrated with hand writing knitting patterns. I would do all the math for a design based on a yarn I had for sale, then I'd sell out and the yarn was no longer available. Of course, the pattern was no longer valid unless I could match the exact gauge.
Knit it Now was born. We grew to include instruction (our Learning Library), stitch patterns, designs from other knitters etc... the site grew and grew and grew ....
Today we offer so much!
The Learning Library has easily searchable videos, tutorials grouped into series by topic, Home Study Courses and more.
We still offer yarn on cones. Sadly, the availability of yarn on cones has diminished so much over the years, we are pleased to be able to offer yarn from Jaggerspun (US), Tamm (Mexico), Silk City Fibers (US distributor) and Yeoman Yarns (UK).
In addition we offer a wide range of both printed books and downloadable eBooks for machine knitters.
Our dynamic "Basics" patterns are the heart of our Knit section. Take a basic shape, knit it with any yarn on any machine ... with any stitch pattern and make it your own! We also have some "vintage" pattern available, as well as designs from Knit-1, Ellen Kindsvater, Anne Levine, yours truly and others.
Part of our "Knit" section are projects. These are designed as quick knitting projects that you can make in a weekend. They often focus on a single technique allowing you to try the technique before committing to an entire garment. Instead of just swatches, we encourage you to "play" with a finished item.
Did I mention our Tools? Let us do the math for you!
In looking back, I'm always amazed at how much we have accomplished in the last 5+ years. A knitter and a non-knitting programmer ... who knew?
