The Road to Knitting is passionate about the environment. We understand that everything has a carbon footprint. We are on a mission to help everyone reduce their carbon footprint as much as possible. To do this, we offer patterns for the kitchen, the bathroom, and for Christmas items that can replace disposable products. We also encourage our website visitors to use wool oddments, left over balls of wool and end of line wool, plus unravelling knitted items to create something new.

The knitting patterns are delivered by download to your computer, tablet, ipad or iphone in PDF format. Anyone, anywhere can open a PDF file. All you need is PDF reader software. This is available free from the Adobe website.

You may have noticed our web address starts with c3z3.com, a domain that is shared with other websites. By sharing resources, these websites use less energy than separate domains would, making them more eco-friendly. Plus, you can type c3z3.com into your web browser, and you will reach a page with a link to The Road to Knitting.

We have been asked why c3z3? It was chosen because it is short and easy to remember (all the letters/numbers rhyme when z is pronounced zee). The number 3 has powerful symbolism. Think about good things coming in 3s (3 wishes, 3 wise men, etc.). Wherever the number 3 shows up in your life, it is generally an omen of creativity, communication, curiosity, zeal, zest, and zen.
