There are many knitting generator applications available for Windows and mobile devices (even iPads & iPhones), but I can't find anything for my desktop iMac.

I know this subject has been discussed before, but hope springs eternal that there's something new out there.

Thank you for any help you KPers have to offer!

For designing knitted and sewing garments for adults and children on a Mac go to Garment Designer - I've used it for years (since 2001) on my Mac to design knitted garments for myself. It is also available for PC users. The owners are two women who are very knowledgeable about the design process and very helpful by phone or e-mail. Go to their web site http://www.cochenille.com/garm.html#feature

The software you purchase is rather expensive - $249 - but well worth it if you want to design your own garments. You design garments based on the measurements/sizes you need, get a printout with detailed instructions, etc.

Thank you for your reply! I'm glad to know that there's something out there, but sadly, the cost exceeds my budget--by about $239. :-D Maybe someday...

Intwined Pattern Studio Software $28.60

http://www.knitpicks.com/search.html?q=Software&dispatch=pages.view%26page_id%3D423

I inquired about this for Mac and they said that it works with Mac OS up through 10.8 Mountain Lion.

Thank you, MZMom--I so appreciate your research on the topic. Have you used this software, and if so, what do you think of it?

No I haven't used it. I had seen a post about it and wrote to KnitPicks to see if it would work with my OS, which it does. If I wanted software right now I wouldn't hesitate to try it because KnitPicks stands behind their sales, I'm sure they would give you a refund if it didn't work correctly.

Thanks again, MZMom! I've since heard from another KPer that what I really need is "Sweater Wizard." Unfortunately this software may not be Mac compatible, and on top of that, it's no longer available--even on eBay! :-(

So until something else comes along, I'm just going to have to depend upon the kindness of strangers to help with my knitting. :-D


Thanks again,
Judy
