    As an old lady returning to knitting after a 25year absence ,I’m finding it hard going,not being computer literate or owning a mobile phone , I do have an I pad which I love struggling with . I would like to have access to all these blogs but haven’t a clue how to .

      Lately an iPad can be frustrating with some of these knitting/yarn websites. For instance, Allfreeknitting.com recently has frozen the thing and I have to restart. Anyway, open Safari from the main screen, type knitting yarns or patterns or whatever you are looking for in the browser. This will produce a series of sites from which you can choose. Eventually you’ll realize what is going on. Good luck.
