Do you like to knit? Or would you love to learn?
Either way, there's a cool site by a longtime Wisconsin knitter, where you can pick up new techniques or refine the ones you've got. These are easy-to-follow knitting instructions, whether you're starting a project from scratch, or altering a knitted garment that you bought.
The blog TECHknitting, which has been published since 2006, is a straight-forward, folksy website with lots of useful information. You might see an instruction like, "re-knit narrower and waaaaay longer."
But it's not simplistic. In fact, you may need to bone up on knitting terminology before you plunge into some of the more complicated designs. For instance, you'll run into instructions geared to seasoned knitters, like, "Using needles three sizes smaller than you usually use for worsted-weight yarn ..."
TECHknitting is well written, so it's easy to understand. But, even for novice knitters, there are beautifully drawn pictures and clear photographs. (See below.) Plus, there are also well-produced, easy-to-follow instructional videos on YouTube (search for TECHknitter), like the one below.
