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.

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.

What a cute puppy. Sad that people find that they can dislike something so sweet. The world is becoming a very strange place. God Bless you for finding her and giving her a loving home.

So very cute. How can anyone be so heartless as to "throw a puppy away", I'll never understand.

What a cutie! Shame on that woman for just dumping her, but it's wonderful that you saw her so quickly. She was obviously meant to be with your mom.


We see a lot of this in our area...I WISH people wouldn't do such things...where I originate from...animal abuse, hitting with a car and taking off from the scene is a crime...wish other states would adopt the same laws.......she will make you a great pet, and family member, I am sure... :thumbup:

Thank you for your heart towards animals, someone droped off a kitten at our house a few weeks ago, almost starved, we were able to find it a good home on a nearby farm, were it will be loved and taken care of. I do not understand people that can do this to helpless animals.

i often wonder about people ... they even discard unwanted babies in dumpsters ... sad state we are in now. My daughter does the rescues, I do the fostering and any med care they need. Then we both look for suitable loving homes.

She's totally adorable. How lucky that you found her and she now has a loving home. Who wouldn't want a little lovely like her?

I just don't understand how anyone can toss out a pet. It boggles the mind. Thank goodness she was found in a timely fashion and now has a wonderful place to call home.

Her guardian Angel did good to make you go check out the grass.... What a darling little girl! I would have just loved her too! Thank God she will be loved and she will be such a blessing for your mom!
Thank you for sharing!

What a precious little creature! Thank heaven you saw her when you did. It's beyond me how people can just "dump" something/someone off without a care. She could just as easily have left her on your doorstep .....
