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.

E-mail address:

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.

(A new newsletter issue is released each week. So if you don't sign up now, you'll miss this week's digest.)

Maybe, hopefully someone will know. I am looking for some "black cord 0.30mm monofilament." It's to place some whiskers on a cat amigurumi. What I keep getting in my searches is fishing line.

Is there something else that maybe I could use that is not flimsy but it has to be black? Thank you

You might check at Jo-Ann's if you have one nearby..or perhaps on-line in the jewelry dept.

There are some fishing lines that are black! I use the small thin stuff (8 lb test) at work all the time. It would make great whiskers! Go to the fishing dept. of a sports store and check it out.

Try Hobby Lobby's web site or ACMoore. Those might be your best bets, but do try the outdoor store websites, like Gander Mt, Bass Pro shops. If anyone has it they might.

Try Fire Mountain Gems. They have a large variety of cords in different weights and colors.

I would think that a dollar store brush the kind that has bristles would work.. if they are long enough..

black crochet cotton works but you have to stiffen it up a bit with Elmer's glue. Glue will be invisible when it dries.

Dollar store and Harbor Freight carry 4" skinny black zip ties. You can catch the thick part on the inside and sew a couple of stitches to keep from losing the stiff black part. You can trim them shorter and cut to taper them skinnier, too.

Maybe some kind of fishline, maybe the cord used for string trimmers, maybe bristles from a broom.

Use black jewelry wire. You will find in any store that sells beads and supplies, JoAnns, Michaels, Hobby Lobby. It doesn't cost much for a spool.

The monofiliment is the best thing I think....the cats whiskers will stand up well. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.
