Meta Postmodern Knitting defines itself as 'a celebration of fashion-forward and avant-garde knitting'. I really admire the apparent thoughtfulness in their designs & the attention given to detail. The site includes periodic pattern collections, trend analysis, & news on recent artistic & unconventional applications for knitting. Patterns are available at no cost.
Knotions is the revamped Magknits. Pattern collections, articles on technique, book reviews, & blog. Patterns are available at no cost.
