Japanese knitting help

ABCs of Knitting is a Japanese knitting site with a lot of great information in English:

There's a bunch of other stuff on the site, too, including instructions/reviews for a pompom maker and Hanaami loom and free patterns.

More help on reading Japanese knitting charts is at Clearwater Knits, plus they offer two free sweater charts.

Changes

Hi, I'm Kuky, one of the members of Crafting Japanese. Happy new year! With this new year there will be some changes to this site.

I will be taking over the submissions completely. From now on you may send completed project links to me (kukyideas [at] gmail [dot] com) and I'll add you as a contributor.

We will also be seeing more updates to the site. To accomplish this we will no longer be adding thumbnails of every completed project. Thumbnails will only be for the personal submissions. We'll be using text links instead.

To our current members and anyone interested in helping update Crafting Japanese with text links, please email me.

Here's to a great new year for Crafting Japanese!
