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.

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.

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 and crocheters.

Indeed. After my kids moved out (years ago) I kept waiting for things to slow down a bit, but not so far! I just keep hoping that I don't run out of days before I get to the "I'll get to it one day" stuff. :shock:

Hi, Vera - I love to do genealogy research but haven't been able to work on it in a while. The information I've come up with comes from so many different sources, and I've found some long-lost relatives along the way...really neat. One of the things I've read says that one of my ancestors was related (sister or cousin) to Ann Boleyn - but I haven't read any of her history. Any ideas? Would enjoy exchanging ideas with you. Linda


Hi lLinda

I know you may not be able to do anything with your research on your family connetion to Ann Boleyn and her family at the moment but the following website is excellent, its done through Angelfire, who are really really good with family trees. Here is the link, which I hope you can open. You never know, you may see something that you can recognise, please let us all know wont you?

Hi Vera M
Thank you for finding when my ggggrandfather Richard Steele Wilkinson was born in 1780 his wife's name was Harriet, I don't know her maiden name or their marriage date. Their son William Steele Wilkinson died on 8th Febuary 1863 at 9 upper Phillimore place, kensingson at the age of 45 which made him born in 1818. If you could find out Richard Steele Wilkinson's mother and father's name, where he was born and when and where he was married and his wife Harriet's maiden name, I know it's a lot to ask, but I will be ever so greatful. Joy

Hi - There is quite a lot on this family on the internet and I do not want to send you what you already have/know. There is a lovely photo of Andrew there, taken in his 30's I would imagine. Do you have this as wont send otherwise? Also there is a lovely account of the reason why Andrew and Mary Ann went to Australia - they were escorting some sheep apparently, to a Colonel and also about what happened to the children after Andrew died. Do you have this as well? However, the marriage still seems a mystery so will continue looking for this until I hear from you.
