Long before there was a Knitty [like circa 1997], there was Wool Works: the online knitting compendium. I had the pleasure of meeting Emily in person, also before there was a Knitty, and was overwhelmed by her knitting knowledge and skill -- she was a steeker! She did Starmores in her sleep! So freaking cool.
Last night at Lettuce Knit, I saw Emily for the first time in a lot of years. She has a new wee girly bairn [so sweet!] and came wearing Inishmore. And bringing news...Woolworks is now being updated again! Very cool news, since this is one of the most comprehensive lists of all things knitting that ever lived on the web, including the cool list of North American knitting guilds that no one else has [as far as I know].
She's working on a redesign, and soliciting suggestions on her front page.
Welcome back, Emily! We missed you!
