New York City knitters share a special kind of solidarity. Maybe you've stabbed a neighbor on the subway with a too-long needle or left a DPN in a taxi cab. Maybe you've spent a perfect day in Prospect Park or Central Park with a blanket, a book, and your knitting. You definitely know where School Products is and how to get to it without referring to a map.
We 5 borough knitters need some solidarity on the Internets, too. So here it is: a blog ring.
To be a member of this ring:
1. You must live within the 5 boroughs (sorry, Philadelphia is not a borough!).
2. You must have a knitting blog, where you talk about knitting.
3. You must post regularly. For our purposes regularly will be at least once a week.
4. The ring code must be correct and must be visible on the page where your blog is located.
5. Your blog must be written in english.
6. You are responsible for making chages to your blog information (new url, new email, new blog name).
When joining the ring:
1. Your blog must be at least a month old.
2. Your blog must show regular postings (once a week) for the last month.
3. You have one week from the time you submit your site to get your ring code up and running correctly.
4. You will receive a message from RingSurf with your Ring Code and Ring ID. Please keep this message or your records!*
I've never done the ring thing before, so please let me know if you have problems or suggestions!
Oh, and as for icons, this one is just one I threw together. If you've got an idea for one, send it to me!

Can you offer membership in abstentia? I'm 70 miles north of NYC, and missing it dearly!
If you would be so kind to extend it to the "NY Metro Area", I'd love to join!
I'd be interested (even though I've been a slacker knitter lately)!
OK so right now I live in CT, but we might move to Jersey City soon. Would I qualify then? Because once I move, they'll probably kick me out of the New England ring, and then where will I go?
you got a knitter over here who would be interested...
Good idea! I'd love to join too.
I can SEE the damn city from my NJ aerie over the Lincoln Tunnel. Is that close enough to qualify? Hell, I'm closer to midtown than Astoria.
I signed up! Let me know if I don't show up on the list. Thanks for organizing!!
Heh! I was reading the rules and they sounded awful familiar :)
Good luck with your ring. They are a lot of work, but such a great way to meet people and to help others to connect!
I'm with Mindy. I pick up pizza at John's or Chinese at Shun Lee and get it home hot. I'm definitely closer to NYC than some of those borough folks. NJ RULES! ;-)
Jeez, these Jersey girls. Maybe we can have a ring with a tunnel attached? :)
I'll have to be better about the posting, but I'm in.
How 'bout an NYC Expats ring? I'm in the Boston area now, but still consider myself a New Yawka. You can take the girl out of the City, but you can't take the City out of the girl.
Um...I guess I qualify because I currently work in Manhattan. But, it's a temp job. I live in Westchester. What happens when my job ends?
Very cool! And an incentive to post more often...
I signed up but the code says I haven't been approved yet. Just letting you know!
I am guessing that Jersey City (I can see Manhattan from where I live, and I work in Chelsea!) is ineligible, too??
oohhh, please count me in! I'm always reading everyone's blogs but I want to be included. I feel like such an eavesdropper sometimes! :-)
Hey, can I play? I'd love to touch base with some more NYC knitter types.
How about extending the ring to allow Native NYer's? Have pity on those of us who have physically left NY, but who can and shall never be anything but NYer's!
I really enjoy the site Fig and Plum. Alas, I don't meet the requirements for the NYC knitters, but I would like to be able to send you an e-mail. ('Contact' button is on the fritz...) I'm studying for the LSAT and plan to apply to NYU law school. It would be neat to exchange a few e-mails with Jessica about her experience there.
I would like to join your ring. Please let me know
Good idea! I'd love to join too
Question: what does this blog ring do? What happens once you join?
I am looking for kind knitters who want to volunteer and share their love for this hobby with chemo patients.
Because we Jersey Girls aren't really NYC (though I could swim there), does anyone know of a good NJ knitting ring? It's such a great community concept and I'm saddened that the water between Manhattan and NJ keeps us out, when it really doesn't look any different from the water in between any other two masses of land in this area :(
Hello knitters!!! I am a student at Kent State University studying fashion design. I currently live in Midtown and attend a satalite campus. I am trying to find someone who is able to knit a camel. I am designing a childrens wear line and would like to include a knitted sample of one of my designs. The sample needs to be aprox. 10in x 8in. I can supply the materials needed if necessary and will pay you for your work. Unfortunately I must turn this project in for judging on wednesday march 12, 2008. If you or anyone you know would be able to help Please e-mail or call me as soon as possible. Thank you!
