A friend of mine has been running a knitting site with tons of knitting instructions and lots of knitting videos since 2011 and needed to expand the site to meet the needs of the million-plus visitors now coming to her site.
For the past several months she and I have been making changes and additions to her knitting site, including a new name; mysimpleknitting.com. We expect it to be finished soon and open to the general public, perhaps in the next week or so.
We have moved her site to her own server, no more shared hosting, increased her offerings to visitors, all the while retaining the fun of knitting and friendliness which so many visitors liked about her site.
Besides the vast amount of knitting instructions and knitting videos she has on her new site there is now an included knitting forum and other handy things for knitters.
In celebration of her six years successfully running her knitting site and to add a little more fun to her new web site, she is offering a playful knitting-related contest in which all her knitting community members can partake in and perhaps win the monthly prize.
Her new site, mysimpleknitting.com, is expected to be open in the next week or two. We’re keeping our fingers crossed that nothing unexpected pops up to delay the opening.
