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.

Someone asked about the Scrubby yarn. It's Bernat Handicrafter cotton. It's sold by Mary Maxim. It makes a nice scrubby but is a bit expensive. $2.99 for 58 yards.

I tried it out. I liked working with it so far. I have not had a chance to use it yet.

I just bought Bernat Handicrafter for $1.99 at Walmart and Michaels. The varigated is a smaller ball at 68 yards and the solid color is 80 yards. I have also bought it online from Mary Maxim at $1.47 but shipping cost brings the price up.

It is also available in a large ball of 608 yards varigated and solid colors. I bought the varigated at Walmart for $8.97. I don't know the price of the solid color.

Scrubbies! They also have a booklet with patterns. It has a rough texture perfect for scrubbies. I made the flower scrubbie. Works great but took the whole skein..kinda expensive

I use plastic canvas "yarn" String, whatever you call it. Knit square scrubbies from it. Hard on the hands tho. tried to incorporate it with yarn, doesn't work too well.

I wasn't aware there wasn't a yarn called "scrubby". I just use the regular Handcrafter to make my scrubbies, dishcloths, and swiffer covers.
Thank you.

Me too. Much less expensive.
And I think it works better. I wasn;t happy with Scrubby yarn. Didn't work in the kitchen, ok in the shower to smooth your feet.
But still would rather by netting.
