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.

Unlike other websites, we don't try to pitch specific brands of hooks or needles, yarn, or paid tutorials, while collecting sales commission.

Instead, we have other people, who are great knitters and crocheters, share with you what they know about knitting and crochet. What accessories they use, which yarn is the best for which type of project, which techniques work and which don't.

It's all completely unbiased. Our users simply have no reason to lie to you. They are people just like you.

And we provide a free platform for you and them to communicate. So you get to discover this information straight from the source, from people just like you, not from editors of some magazine or sales reps of some company.

This is what makes us different from other knitting websites out there that try to sell you something while claiming they are trying to help you.

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.

Here is how to proceed and what to expect:

Enter your name and e-mail address below, and you'll be instantly added to our knitting and crochet mailing list distribution. You'll receive a one-time confirmation e-mail. Right after that, the first e-mail with today's digest will be forwarded to you. The signup process is completely automated, so you are just a few minutes away from discovering what our existing users already received earlier today. So you'll get up to speed right away on what's the latest on our website, without any long introductions or other delays.

TAGS AND HIGHLIGHTS

Is there where you said we may practice using the different colors and emoticons?


It sure is . just try it as much as you want and I will delete it when you are finished. I don't need to be here for you to practice.

I

to do the smiles just click on whichever one you wish to show at the end of your post.

=========
Tags are actually quite easy -- look at the instructions closely.
==========
The color works exactly like the bold and italic.

You just us [color=purple] then you put in your message you want highlighted -- then you put in [/color

and[u] also add the otherside of the parenthesis so that the last part is boxed in like the first.

then you write in what you want and finish it exactly like [/b]
only you put in the word color instead of the b. [/u]( I still make mistakes and have used them a lot on the workshops.}

See if it works and if it doesn't go back and read the first part making sure it is surrounded with [] and that the inside says color=purple. then write your word or what you want highlighted. make sure [---] are facing in the same direction as shown.

To finish it -- Use [/color with the other half of the parenthesis added.you don't write in the actual color. just the word color and exactly the same as where it says change color.

Try it until you are sure -- then I will drop by and talk about how to use bold with the color which is quite simple.
===========================

I am trying out bold

Now I am trying italics

And the colour [color=red]

Ok, so the colour did not work out. Try again:

DESIGNER HERE -- You are not doing it quite right so I deleted your efforts please see if this helps.

To put in a color

[color=red]message [/color

and then the other square bracket facing in to finish it off . I can't put it in or the word message will be red. so there is one bracket on one side of the message which is complete here and the bracket on the other side needs one more bracket facing in.

you will then have your color.

[quote=Designer1234]DESIGNER HERE:
=========================
FIRST of all as you are in Britain, Canada or any place that spells it colour - never spell the color as colour -ask me how I know;. You HAVE TO USE THE AMERICAN SPELLING COLOR OR IT WON'T WORK.

It looks like you figured it out with darowil's help.

do another color and we will make sure it is working for you.

just remember [color=purple] is the first side - then you write what you want hi lighted and then you finish with [/color and put the other side ([) only facing in on the end and you should have it.
[/quote]

=================
to make a bold colored hi light do the followng making sure you complete the first part of the parenthesis.

you will put
[ /color][/b] AFTER THE MESSAGE

[b][color=red]] BEFORE THE MESSAGE


======

if you want to have an underlined bold message here is the END OF IT AFTER THE MESSAGE .

[/b][/u]

Here is the FRONT part before the message [u][b]

make sure you put them in the right order or it won't work. The two different ends are mirror images of the order you want to post

b and u parenthesis -- message ---- /u and /b

you will then have this

[ /color] [/b]AFTER the message [/b]

[b] []BEFORE the message - I can't do them in order of it will be done so I have done the last one first.

The second half is a mirror image you MUST put them in the same place before and after you type your message

in other words this won't work [/b]
as you wrote your
First tag with the on the outside so it must be on the outside of the tag.

======================================NOTE:

[/u]

Here is the front part before the message [u]

make sure you put them in the right order or it won't work. The two different ends are mirror images of the order you want to post

b and u parenthesis -- message ---- /u and /b

you will then have this[/b-- the b ends as below:

=====================================
Thank you, Shirley. I did keep spelling color as 'colour' and that definitely didn't help, lol!

Shirley here: It HAS to be perfect. I have done some and can't figure out why they didn't work . so I just leave them and then go back and do them a bit later. Often I do a workshop and hi light it and some of the high lights don't work. Usually it is the
at the end. Just keep practicing . I don't mind removing them later. have fun. try the others I wrote about too. good job! I will be leaving the main information up here so book mark it incase you forget - It took Jessica Jean about 3 days to show me.

I don't know, I still never have figured it out completely. I have been sent some links that work but can't seem to make them work if I copy the link on the
www.sherf.net.com site. I will work at it and we will see what happens.

look at the page where I have a lot of working emoticons. Try clicking on quote reply at the bottom. hopefully the links will show up for each of the emoticons shown. they do for me. I then copied them onto a page ' then I

started a post and copied them onto the post, one at a time to make sure it was working. It did. I added them one at a time to the post. see if that works.
