Came upon this piece when looking for a sewing solution,

Zippers in Knitwear, The No-sewing Way

I'm still not knitting but I have several beautiful garments that were knit by my mom - and I was her knitwear zipper installer - . This looks like a useful bit of information.

I didn't find a general information knitting thread so please feel free to park any helpful information or links here. Adding at the bottom to help folks find this in the future.

Fascinating idea on the zippers! Nice idea to create a knitting tip thread as well.

I haven't actually used this website, but found it recently:
knittinghelp.com

The Craft Yarn Council website has a page with standards. The links are on the left of the page, with the bottom one being a downloadable PDF. I found it helpful. I learned about it from the Craftsy learn to crochet class; it applies to both knitting & crocheting.

Thanks for posting this link on zippers in knitwear. Also, AnneM, I can vouch for the KnittingHelp.com site, I basically taught myself to knit using it! Lots of clearly written instructions and videos.

Bias bind-off - coco knits by Julie Weisenberger

Once you check the picture you'll see why I had to post this tip for binding off on the bias. (Found it while doing a little homework before sewing a cotton sweater lace project.) You might want to look over her neat little catalog of other tips and tutorials. Tote bags knit from recycled plastic bag strips!
