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.

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.

Enter your name and e-mail address below, and you'll be instantly added to our knitting mailing list distribution. Right away, you'll get access to more knitting-related material (pictures, patterns, tips) than contained in all knitting books and magazines you could ever buy. And you'll get all that for free.

You'll be able to talk and share ideas with more knitters than you could meet if you attended all the largest trade shows. And you'll be able to do all that without leaving your house!

Don't delay! Join the best knitting and crochet community on the Internet.

E-mail address:

It's FREE, and you'll receive my first e-mail right away. Also, you'll get instant access to the most recent topics on our knitting forum: hundreds of great tips from other knitters and crocheters.

(The next digest will be released in just a few hours. So if you don't sign up now, you'll miss everything covered in it.)

What a treat. Thank you for that unexpected blessing. I don't want to give it away, but I would have loved to have been there and joined in the celebration.

Merry Christmas.

This could never happen in the UK, all the singers would be arrested for causing "distress" and "offense" to members of the public of other faiths. We are no longer able to show overt public displays of Christianity in this country. I will probably be arrested for hate crimes just for writing this.

How wonderful to see everyone joining in praising the meaning of Christmas. My heart filled when the young boy, upon first see the baby, fell to his knees. Perhaps all is not lost yet.

I really feel for you. This is where our country is headed too (USA) unfortunately. Keep praying, keep the faith. We support you! Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Obviously the singers were staged but the crowd's reaction surely was not. Wouldn't the world be a beautiful place if people actually did spontaneously burst into song? And the crowd didn't regard it as so unusual that they had to record it on their cell phones? Thanks for the video - made my day.

That was wonderful. I was singing along at my computer and didn't notice until my DD came into the room.

I thought WE were the ridiculously politically correct ones... I am pleased to know that we still have a way to go before this type of thing is not "allowed" or shunned.
