I just posted a question with a new tag knit-fabric. I wasn't allowed to create knits, my first choice, since there was already a tag for knit (one question - this might be better served by knitting, actually), and the help-text pointed me here to ask about it.
When sewing with knits, there are special concerns and different techniques used as compared to woven fabrics, so I think it would be worth having a tag for questions specifically about them. On the other hand, perhaps we don't want to set a precedent of a tag for every fabric. Personally, I think this would be useful meta-information - precisely what tags are for.
So, two questions for the community:
- Should we have a tag for knit fabrics?
- If so, what would be an appropriate tag, to distinguish it from questions about knitting or knitted garments?
