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

If you are a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or a professional knitter, 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 message board digest with the latest knitting 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.

• 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.

Has anyone used the knitting stress relief gloves? I see them all the time and was wondering if they work. My hands start to hurt in a few minutes of knitting so I have to stop and shake my hands. Kristen

I would suggest you check with your doctor for carpal tunnel testing along with thyroid and vit B all of which can cause these symptoms.

I have tendinitis in my shoulder arms and hands. And arthritis. That's why I was wondering. I haven't been getting my massages lately but after the first of the year I'm going back. The joys of old age lol

Some people swear by those gloves; I swear at them. I feel that I'm working against the elastic, and my hands get cold. No joint relief for me from them.

Also...taking the Calcium (Caltrate?) medication has helped me with how much my hips ache when I raise one leg a certain height. Not canine style...like when you have to climb over a log or go up the stairs. Not fun without the medication as arthritis is NOT my friend.

My sister had carpel tunnel done and her hands were never the same. So I really dont want to do that. Besides they would have to do my shoulder elbows and hands. Too much for me. I can't wait for the really golden years. Lolm

I have gloves that cover part of the thumb, because that's what gets sore. Had trouble finding them, because, most gloves have the thumb cut out. I wear them when I get sore crocheting, and I wear them to sleep. They are not so tight that the circulation gets cut off.

ps I too turn them inside out :-)

So had "nerve released" in my elbow done and . . . .wel still got numb fingers and now I have numb patch at my elbow and down the back of my lower arm. Not again . . . .I will rather stitck with my numb fingers and waite for a miracle!!!!! Doc said if it did not heal properly he could redo the op. Must have been joking!!!

I use the gloves when my thumbs hurt. I have the green ones from Joan's with half fingers. These I use when my hands ache. I also have two thumb gloves I got from the drug store. There is a Velcro closure at the wrist and the fingers are free. I removed the metal stays and the work great. When my hands are thumbs are sore, I wear them all the time and sleep in them. My hand doctor said that my thumbs would need surgery, but they have improved so much since I have been knitting every day. Credit might be due to the gift of an electric jar opener. Never open jars! Save your hands for knitting.

Thanks everyone. I think I will give them a try. I have been looking at them for awhile. Glad to know I'm not the only person that has the same problem. Thank you. Kristen

I have Immune Athritis (similar to Rhuematoid A) in hands & feet. In winter when its cold in Sydney AU I wear full Thermomagnetic gloves. The stretchy tight 1/2 fingered gloves do not feel comfortable. I wear the to bed & driving for added warmth. When I'm using the computer I have made fingerless knitted gloves in the round, with longer thumbs, no fingers, but longer & looser finger covering. I used Opal fingering, plain stockingstich & rib 2 X 2 rib at either end. The rib on thumb & finer area are done with a larger sized needle. I have a set for home & the office.
