I'm a relatively new knitter and have been stalking Ravelry and KnitPicks. Loving both of these sites. I've made two infinity scarves recently and my next project is a cable knit headband. Just bought the KnitPicks interchangeable circular needles. Can you suggest any other wonderful knitting blogs or tutorials? Favorite source for yarns and patterns? Thank you!

Well, I was going to suggest Ravelry so I'm not going to be much help. I'm a new knitter myself.

Knitting Help has some very good tutorials.

Blogs I like are Yarn Harlot and Grumperina .

If you google knitting, all kinds of information will come up. Patons is a good site for yarn. But you can google yarns and get lots of websites. Also google free patterns and again lots of results

I think as far as patterns I almost never need any other resource than ravelry. But for blogs I would second "Yarn Harlot." She is hysterical! Welcome to knitting

I follow a few blogs but really prefer the group feature of Ravelry. Nearly every brand, knitter, designer idea etc has a group.
I also find all of the blogs I follow from there.
