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.

Does anyone know of a good yarn shop near The Villages, FL 32162? I've tried Knitmap.com and all I could find was two Mom & Pop stores with little to offer. Do I have to drive all the way to Orlando? Thanks for your help.

I'm not far from The Villages, and most of my purchases are done online. Sorry - Joanns, Hobby Lobby, couple of small limited shops are all that's available nearby.

The Yarn Lady in Lady Lake is a beautiful yarn store and Diane, the owner, is happy to help you. It is five minutes from the Villages. She has a tremendous inventory of anything your heart desires!

There is a store in Leesburg, don't have any information as I just learned they are going to be part of The Orange Blossom Yarn Crawl this year!! As of last Monday no information was posted on their website for this year crawl. Last year was the first and we had a lot of fun, save the dates March 28 thru April 5, 2014. My favorite hang out LYS is Knit! located in 900 Fox Valley Drive, Longwood, FL 32779. Great friendly and helpful owners, great selection of yarns! Happy Knitting!!

sounds like you need to drive into O'town. I know. It's a pain. I get it.

LYS just off 436: The Knitting Patch. It is worth the trip. Laura is the owner and knowledgeable... no junk here either.

I don't know but my cousin moved to The Villages a year ago and knits - I'll send her a note and ask what is available there or nearby.

I just got back from the Villages today. We had a great time. It is good to know there are knitters there. We are talking about moving to Brownwood area. Just love the little "towns".

We are partial to Lake Sumter. Reach town square is different but the real reason The Villages is so great is the friendly people. Wish I had moved here 10 years ago. Linda
