In the summary for Exercises in Knitting, there's a link to KnitWiki which no longer works: "LibriVox knitters have also knitted samples of these patterns, displayed at the KntiWiki, ..." The failed link is http://knitting-and.com/wiki/Exercises_in_Knitting

The book is at https://librivox.org/exercises-in-knitting-by-cornelia-mee/

Links to KnitWiki are mentioned in the book thread at least once. The first that I bumped into still works - http://www.knitting-and.com/wiki/Sugar-Plum_Stitch/ - so it's possible that the original page still exists but with a different URL. I don't know how to find out, though.

If the sample photos are still accessible, would it be worth collecting them and putting them into a file on archive.org, linked to the LibriVox summary?

This link works: http://www.knitting-and.com/wiki/category/exercises_in_knitting/

But I agree - putting them into the Archive page would keep them safe.

I've changed the link in the project description, and I've also printed the wiki pages to a PDF and uploaded it to the Archive page.

Thanks, Tricia; I went through the thread again. It did look like a lot of fun.
