Over the course of a year she did not buy any new clothing, but rather gave herself $365 to buy bargain bin dresses. She then took each item and made it into something fashionable, one for every day of the year.

After I began looking at the huge number of patterns on Ravelry I realized there was a lot more to learn about knitting. A quick search for knitting stitches revealed sites full of hundreds of stitches. It was all very overwhelming. I began this site to better my own knitting skills, but it has turned into something much more.

The goal of New Stitch A Day is:

To teach others through high quality, easy to understand, video tutorials

To advance the fiber arts through knitting and crochet

To provide resources to aid in the learning of knitting and crochet

I hope you have a lot of fun exploring the site!
