Alexander Hartmann stellt einen Webring für Stricker vor. Ich wusste nicht, dass es sowas auf deutsch gibt – Weblogs für Stricker sind bekannt in den USA und England. (Via plasticthinking) Deutscher Strickbloggerinnen.
I’ve long been fascinated by knitting weblogs. I haven’t had any time to knit for the last twenty years (although there was a period of a couple of years where half the class was knitting while I was teaching). But if I did, I would find the weblogs useful. There are photos of projects in progress, and the comments can be enlightening too.
Now Alexander Hartmann, via plasticthinking (links above), points out that there is a German knitting weblog ring.
Because of the pictures, I suppose even those who speak no German might be interested to look.
Here’s an American living in Norway, plus Norwegian for knitters. Here’s a knitting club in Britain (the shop has some bizarre patterns, such as knitted shoelaces and an exfoliating cover for a bath sponge).
Here’s a sewing weblog started by Mena Trott of Movable Type.
Cooking weblogs have actually made it to my link list: Appetites (Robert D. Peyton, if I remember right a lawyer in New Orleans, including restaurant reviews, with links to other food blogs), La Grand Bouffe (German, from Vienna, by a student from Südtirol/Alto Adige – or somewhere around there), and I was just really very hungry, by Makiko Itoh, who is Japanese, grew up in Britain and the USA, lived in Japan and now lives in Switzerland, also with good links).
I suppose there must be weblogs on carpentry and home decorating and stopping leaking taps too.
