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.

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.

I really enjoyed the Cedar cove program last night. I found that after reading the 13+ books quite some time ago, I had forgotten quite a bit. Andie Macdowell is really beautiful and although I always envisioned Olivia as blond, Andie captured Olivia's personality. It will be interesting to see which characters come on board next week. Movies are never as good as a book, but the program was enjoyable.

What did y'all think?

I so wanted to see the movie too but I don't have the Hallmark channel here. Darn! I read all the Cedar Cove books also.

I loved it. I have had the pleasure of meeting Andie and her daughter in person and they have a home near mine. She captured Olivia perfectly!!!!

big fan of Andie Macdowell but not familiar with the books... I am assuming this was on Hallmark... I'll have to do a search as a certain male in the house ALWAYS has control of the remote and does not ask for input....

I so wish I had the Hallmark channel. I love Deb MacCombers books. Especially the Cedar Cove Series. I envy you the chance to see her books come alive.

And that is why we seldom watch TV in the same room.

We have Hallmark but I did not watch the show.

Whenever I'm asked at a bridal shower what piece of marriage advice I give, I usually say, "Two television sets and separate remotes whenever possible!" It saved my marriage. My husband is a sports NUT and I love chick flicks and Hallmark and news/commentary so we usually don't watch the same TV ! But we do other things together even after 43 years! And he supports my knitting, so we get along great!! LOL

I am watching the Cedar Cove pilot today (about half done) as I taped it. I think the characters were quite true to character so far. Debbie Macomber is a great author and nice to see the cove come to life. Oregon is awesome! I've been near that area and it is amazing.

Can anyone give me the actual name of the program? I'm trying to see if it is "On Demand" or, if it is a series, the name so I can set up TV to tape.

Oregon is awesome, but the movie is set in Washington--also awesome--and filmed in Vancouver Canada.

I am so excited, I was just scrolling through the tv listing and found out that Cedar Cove is just starting (9:00 pm). We don't have the Hallmark channel so I didn't think we would get it. It is being pvr'd as we speak as I want to watch it when I am alone with a cup of hot tea and a project in my hands.
Dreamweaver, it is just called Cedar Grove and is on regular tv not pay on demand.

Dreamweaver, it's called Cedar Cove (not Grove) and during the commercials they kept referring to it as Debbie Mccombers Cedar Cove. It's on the Hallmark channel. I've not read any of the books, but I really enjoyed the show. I'll be watching it every week. Sugar and Spice's Mom.

I sure didn't realize this was a pilot with series to follow. If so, I'll watch the series.
