Why Would You Ever Want to Pay For Knitting and Crochet Patterns or Lessons When You Can Get All That for Free?
Read this:

We have some of the most skilled knitters and crocheters in the world posting patterns and techniques like you've never seen before. And some of them only post on our website and nowhere else, so you won't find these patterns anywhere else no matter how much time you spend searching! So keep reading.

Unlike other websites, we don't try to pitch specific brands of hooks or needles, yarn, or paid tutorials, while collecting sales commission.

Instead, we have other people, who are great knitters and crocheters, share with you what they know about knitting and crochet. What accessories they use, which yarn is the best for which type of project, which techniques work and which don't.

It's all completely unbiased. Our users simply have no reason to lie to you. They are people just like you.

And we provide a free platform for you and them to communicate. So you get to discover this information straight from the source, from people just like you, not from editors of some magazine or sales reps of some company.

This is what makes us different from other knitting websites out there that try to sell you something while claiming they are trying to help you.

If you are a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or a professional knitter or crocheter, then the benefits of signing up for our free weekly knitting e-mail newsletter are:

• We cover hand knitting, machine knitting, and crochet.

• Each week you'll be receiving new tips and techniques.

• Daily, you'll be receiving a knitting/crochet forum digest with the latest pictures, discussions and patterns.

• If you ever have a question or need help, you can always ask, and we'll cover your question in the following newsletter issue.

• Discover the fastest way to knit (and to crochet) a sock... while keeping the perfect heel and making sure the sock fits (not many knitters know this).

• Find out how to figure out how much yarn you need for a pattern if the pattern doesn't specify it (works for any project, a real life-saver sometimes).

• Learn how to pick up a dropped stitch, even from several rows below. It happens to absolutely everyone at some point. But don't worry, there exists a really simple fix.

• And if you ever run out of yarn, find out how to join any yarn in the middle of any project.

• If you can't find the pattern that you need, or if you don't know which pattern would be most appropriate for a specific project, then you can ask our other users to help you figure it out. We even have a dedicated "Pattern Requests" section on our website that's all about finding new patterns.

• The same goes for any problems and questions about specific techniques. We have experienced users who are always helping those in need with just the right advice.

Note to crocheters: We cover both knitting and crochet on our website. The name Knitting Paradise is just a matter of history of how this website was started. These days, close to 50% of content on our forum is about crochet. So it doesn't matter if you primarily knit or crochet (or if you only crochet), you'll still find just as many patterns, tips, and tutorials that are relevant to your specific interests.

• And of course, as I said it's all completely FREE!

• Let me repeat that. Since for some reason a lot of people contact us asking if the membership is really free: we are a social website for knitters and crocheters, so we don't sell anything, and we don't charge any fees. It's as simple as that.

Hello all. I am starting this topic because I could not find the original post. I went to my local Walmart today to see if they were carrying the new Knitting 123 magazine. I went to the crafting area. I asked the salesperson if there were magazines in the section. She said no. As I turned to leave, I just happened to look down and there was a cardboard stand with four different 123 magazines. The clerk then said she didn't know they were there. I think they may have arrived with the recent magazines as the shelves were newly stocked.
Just saying everyone......if you check your Walmart for when they get shipments in,they could be getting the magazine in.
Thanks for reading and keep the needles clicking.
By the way I found several projects to do and I can't wait to get started!

I've never heard of the magazine. You said it was new, so I wasn't surprised that I hadn't heard of it.

But I looked on the internet, and the only place they had any info on this magazine was your original post.

Did you get the name right? It sounds interesting, and I would like to find out more about it.

I ordered it on line! Let me see.. if I drove the 20miles down and 20 miles home.. how much would the gas be??? Then the thought of tramping all the way to the back of the store to the craft area and scouting for the book! You cold call me lazy, but at least I have the magazine in my hot little hands for less effort.

I found mine at WalMart as well. (I will add without the help of not one, but three sales people "helping" me). I also found it (by myself) in the fabric department on a cardboard display. I like the magazine. I ordered a subscription.
