If you are just learning to knit, you'll need to create your arsenal of knitting supplies. Knitting has become incredibly popular as of late. Young women who grew up in households where neither their mothers nor their fathers knew how to even work sewing machines are suddenly taking up knitting. Being modern women, however, this new crop of knitters is looking to the Internet for the best and cheapest knitting supplies.

These supplies include knitting patterns, needles, yarn, and How To guides. Knitting instructions come in the form of newsletters, videos, or websites. There are even books about how to knit. Teachers are offering instructional classes in one-on-one tutorials, or are being hired out for baby showers and birthday parties, to teach large groups of guests how to knit.

The Best Knitting Supplies Websites

In my opinion, the best knitting supplies websites are ones which bring together a host of different designers and manufacturers. What you want is variety, and a website which brings together large numbers of manufacturers gives you just that. You can either visit an individual site, and look at a dozen or two dozen patterns, or you can visit a conglomerate site, and have literally hundreds of patterns at your fingertips.

Knitting is a wonderfully relaxing hobby that helps clear the mind. It's meditative and pleasant. It's also a great excuse for gathering together with friends for laughter, stories, and gossip. Knitting also has the benefit of being a hobby which results in a tangible, desirable item, like a sweater, scarf, or hat.
