This is a compilation of resources created for a workshop I developed on knitting and math called "Knit it, Solve It!" for the Mississippi Arts Commission's 2011 Whole Schools Institute.  

Knitting Books

Knitting books relevant for the workshop are gathered together in a Knit School Amazon StorePlease remember to support local bookstores and/or yarn shops when possible.  Any revenues from Knit School Amazon Store will be used to support teaching children and teens to knit.

Online Knitting Community

Ravelry is an amazing resource!  If you are a knitter, you have to check this out.  You can search for free patterns.  You can search for a pattern and see what yarns other people have used.   You can keep track of your own projects, stash, needles, books, etc.  AMAZING! 

Online Knitting Videos

The following sites have multiple teaching videos.  For other videos, search knitting terms, projects, and abbreviations on You Tube for a plethora of how-to videos!  Find one that works for you.
