Happy 6th Anniversary to KnittingHelp.com!
Hey Everyone,

The years just keep rolling by! Hard to imagine that KnittingHelp is now 6 years old! I wish Amy and I had time to do something special to celebrate. But we have been so busy, both with our daughter Erin (who will be 2 next month!) and working on the website here. So here's a little State of the KH Union to let you know what's new on the site:


We've updated the Increases page. There are some new videos, and the layout is more reliable (the callouts now point to the correct examples). We're hoping to do the same for the Decreases page soon.

We have a new Getting Started page. Amy worked very hard to write up new content to address some of the common questions new knitters might have.

We have 3 new videos on Gauge! Hooray! They are on the Getting Started page.

We have a new video on slipping a stitch: p-wise vs. k-wise. It's on the Knitting Tips page.

We brought back our KnittingHelp.com shop. We had to close it when our daughter was born as we couldn't keep up with both. We now stock one of the largest collections of Knitting DVD on the web, with titles from Lucy Neatby, Interweave, and Schoolhouse Press. Amy is again offering her very popular rainbow denise needles. If your looking for a knitting DVD or book, please consider purchasing from us. Purchasing from our store helps to support our work on KH, and it keeps me busy. I'm in charge of packing the orders each day.

Not quite news, but in case you don't know KnittingHelp.com is on Twitter, Facebook, and Youtube.

So that's it. We have more things in the works which we are excited about. But I have learned not to talk about things until after they go live. The more I talk them up, the longer it takes for them to go live!

Thanks everyone for being a part of our community!

Sheldon & Amy

Thanks for everything you have done, every single person you have helped will be so thankful. Not to mention those that will still get help from here....

Keep it going, it's a great place to start and to exchange experiences.

Oh, happy birthday! It's funny to think this page is only 6 years old. I found it this spring when looking for English knitting terminology and got hooked. But to me the site was old as salt, since it was so big. That you made all this happen and so complete and everything in just that short amount of time! Congratulations on this!
I will check out the shop again, since I am looking for x-mas gifts to be shipped in and into the US. Maybe my mother in law will benefit!

Knitting Help really did help me get back into the craft. Without all the kind support, my closets would be empty of stash

Thank you so much for all the hard work and dedication!
