There is a special forum here in KH for knitting blogs plus if you look at peoples posts for www you can see their blogs outside KH.
Elsewhere..this is a good one.

I noticed that if you go to knitty.com and look at the patterns, most of the designers have their own blogs (link is usually posted at the bottom of the pattern in the section about the designer.)
With most blogs, there is a list of the blogger's favorite blogs.
I am always amazed at how many there are to read.
I found this blog from a link on someone else's blog:
Nona Knits (http://nonaknits.typepad.com/nonaknits/)
Once you find a good blog and follow their links, the possibilities are endless!

I regularly visit www.masondixonknitting.com. They have links to numerous blogs there and some are pretty good.

Crazy Aunt Purl (http://www.crazyauntpurl.com), Grumperina (http://www.grumperina.com/knitblog), and the Yarn Harlot (http://www.yarnharlot.ca/blog) are my three fav's so far! :)
There's also this really cool blog called Aunty Missy's Dazzling Discoveries (http://enchantedcrystaltears.blogspot.com). It's new and there's not many readers (yet), but "she" posts lots of pictures, and her husband thinks "she's" funny. :flirt:
(Ok ok, that's MY blog. :teehee: But still!)

pick a blog, any blog, (mine for example!) and find a button for knitting blog RINGS. (mine is in left column of blog)
click NEXT (or Previous) or Random (if it exists)
and each click should bring you to yet another blog.
some are all knitting, some are mixed with knitting, recipes, cats (dogs) children and politics or some other other topic.
bookmark the ones you like..
some are updated daily, some weekly, and some at odd intervales.
some have free patterns, some have links to tutorials..
eventually you'll find a dozen or so you like, and you'll come back to them again and again..
there a many many rings, some for members of a geographic area (bay area knitters or NYC knitters) some for Lace Knitters, some for sock knitters.
as you go through the rings, leave comments on any blog/posting you enjoy.

I have a bias towards my friend's blog: Elliphantom Knits (www.elliphantom.com)...and I've found quite a few from hers that I now follow regularly. Love Lolly Knitting Around (http://www.lollygirl.com/blog/) too. Brooklyntweed (http://brooklyntweed.blogspot.com/index.html) has beautiful photography. Just a few of my faves.

The only two I check daily are Grumperina (http://www.grumperina.com/knitblog/) and See Eunny Knit (http://www.eunnyjang.com/knit/). Eunny hasn't posted in a while...I assume she's busy with the book she's writing.
