Well according to myth and lore (and the Home Page of the story goes:

Once upon a time in a land far, far away, there lived a cro--well, we won't say. It's been said that the particular word doesn't go over well with some knitters. Let's just say there lived a crafter without two pointy sticks. Her favorite craft used one stick-like object instead of two in order to achieve crafty pieces. And she started a site. A link directory. People liked it. It got big. Really big. Big enough to be mentioned in cool magazines.

Time passed. The crafters who didn't "do" the craft with a hook at the end of the stick (and therefore couldn't use the existing link directory) piped up, "Hey, we want a site of our own!" And so the cro--ooops--the crafter without two sticks...who does, for the record book, know one cast on, the knit stitch, and one cast off (let's be completely fair to her) said: "Why not? Happy to oblige. Meet Knitting Pattern Central." People liked it. It got big. (5,000 unique visitors a day big) Maybe someday it will be mentioned in cool magazines too. (Meanwhile, everyone is most likely whispering that the owner of KPC has got to be taught how to knit!)
That's been there since when I first ran across the site, but that's only been... less than a year ago. So it must've been in its current configuration before I found it.
