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.

First name:

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.)

Hi,

I am in Orlando and thought I would visit the yarn store that I heard about. I don't recall which town it is in though nor the name. Does anyone recall the post about it? It may be in Lakeland but I am not sure. It isn't Joanns not Michaels.

I checked http://www.knitmap.com/ and the yarn shop in Carefree that I go to isn't listed on the map. I'm pretty sure that the shop hasn't closed.

There are approximately 8 stores involve, three on the central east coast the rest in the general Orlando area . Takes place the first Fri,Sat, Sun of March. Plus the following weekend . You have a passport that is stamped in each store you visit, there will be special sales, free patterns plus raffles which you are entered into when you buy something at the individual stores . If you visit all of the stores you are entered into a larger raffle. It is a lot of fun with six days to complete it!

Nibbles511, this will be my first yarn crawl. Some of the yarn shops in Florida do this once a year..You try and get to as many yarn shops that are on your list and get your Yarn Crawl Passport signed by the shop owners...you don't have to buy yarn at each shop...We have 8 yarn shops to stop at...I can't wait to go...its in March....

The Yarn Lady on 441 just North of the Villages is a WONDERFUL Yarn Store. Diane the owner is very generous with her time and advice. It is well worth the drive and you can have lunch on the Villages Square.
