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.

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.

(A new newsletter issue is released each week. So if you don't sign up now, you'll miss this week's digest.)

Our club will be knitting socks for a charity event. Does anyone have a pattern for machine knit socks? I have found a couple but am always looking for something new. Thanks in advance for your response.

If you e-mail me @ bootheelknitter@yahoo.com, I'll send
you a pattern that a friend of mine designed . It fits a 7-9
foot size. Another friend taught me how to use bobbie pins
to hook on the stitches knitting down to the turned toe and
then drop the stitch containing the bobbie pin and when you are finished it is complete, except you have to sew up the ribbing. It's a remake of the "Seabury Sock" found on the free sock knitting pages. Which is knitted with 2 needles, then, of course, it has to be sewn up. Which I hate to do. This pattern transferred to machine knitting fits
very good. I do wool and they are so comfy and fit good.

Are you familiar with SWAN socks? It means Socks Without A Name. You start knitting on the back portion of the sock: the cuff, then work down to the heel, short row the heel, knit straight the sole, then short row the toe, then continue knitting the instep and front of the sock. The best part is you seam the sides as you knit, so when you reach the front of the cuff your done. I like it because it only uses a small number of needles ( about 40 or less depending on the size of the sock)
