Yarn Reviews & wiseNeedle

If you’ve landed here looking for the On Line Yarn Review Collection, formerly housed at wiseNeedle.com, please don’t despair.

I thank you for your support and reassure you that the yarn review collection has not disappeared.  It has been adopted by Nimblestix.  They extend an invitation to pop over and join their community.  (If you add “wiseneedle” after your last name you’ll be queued for a special invite).

As to wiseNeedle itself – again thanks to all.  It was a good run, but all good things must end.  I will be posting all of the patterns here, possibly the glossary of international knitting terms, and (over time) reworking many of the advice pieces into articles for the String-or-Nothing reference and tutorial sections.  Stay tuned!

  1. It would be wonderful if you could resurrect the international knitting term glossary!

    1. Glad to know that someone found it useful. It’s on my to-do list, and with interest, will now be elevated. Unfortunately, I can’t support a database on this site, as I did on the former (commercial grade) wiseNeedle website. But I’ll look into putting it up as a very large flat file. Thanks for your interest! -k.

  3. Hi,
    I know this is off-subject but this was the only way I could figure out how to contact you. Thank you for posting Justin’s Octagonal Crib Counterpane. I just finished it and it is the prettiest thing I ever made! I gave it away, but will be making one to put in the cedar chest for my own future grandchildren.

    1. Prudence – Thanks! I’m delighted that you enjoyed working up the counterpane. I do this for love, not money, and feedback like yours is what makes it all worthwhile. If you want to send a link to a picture of your finished object, I’d be delighted to share it in the gallery here on the site. All the best to you, the recipient and any future grandchildren! -Kim

  4. Hi Kim,
    Thank you for your good wishes. I would love to send you a picture but I don’t know how. I don’t have a website or do facebook. It is posted on Ravelry.com–does that help?

  5. Just happened upon this website- trying to check some vintage yarn on wiseneedle. So glad that it hasn’t disappeared.

  6. I just landed on this website while going through an old PDF of the sock in 4 sizes. I learned how to knit socks using your pine tree sock (just read the pattern & started) but now I need a size 13…. I’m glad you’re still around & creating! I recently started embroidering and am thrilled to find that you do this too–I find your instructions clear, precise, and easy to follow.
