Sharing our love of fiber arts

Solomon's Porch in Wilmore, KY hosts The kNook

As many of you know, Markie is now a consultant for Close To My Heart. To learn more about hosting a gathering, click HERE. To join one of Markie's gatherings and to shop for products, click HERE.

Our Motto:

We seek to provide a safe place for creative expression, intellectual curiosity and comradery through the arts.

Please note: participating in our stitch-alongs is completely free. However, you can still help The kNook by purchasing the book from Amazon by using the link below. The kNook will receive a small bonus for advertising


Markie often says that she learned just about everything she knows about knitting from The Sweater Workshop by Jaqueline Fee. The book contains a project that one uses to practice all the great information about knitting sweaters. Starting in February, we'll be knitting that project together, doing a little bit at a time and discussing each step.


Bonnie suggested this book so that crocheters too can hone their craft right along beside the knitters. The plan is to do a different one of the sixty squares each week and to join these squares into a unique afghan at the end.
