The service creates a portal for social interaction among knitting, crocheting, and fiber arts hobbyists with tools for planning and tracking projects. In addition to discussion forums and interest groups, it supports documentation of knitting projects underway and planned, a catalog of designs and patterns with bookmarks and user reviews, and user yarn stash inventory.
API methods support social interaction among site users such as forum discussions by topic, management of friend lists and subscriptions, and messaging among individual users. Methods also allow maintenance of project lists, including work underway, completed, and queued for future completion. The API supports planning for knitting projects with access to databases of patterns, yarns, and supplies as well as updates to individual yarn stash records.
