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.

I finished these scrap socks, my second pair using the Fish Lips Kiss Heel as a toe. These were knit from the toe up at the same time, one on a 9 inch size 1 Chiaogoo circ and one on double points., It worked really nicely that way, as about the time I was sick of the double points I would work on the circular one for a few hours, and around the time I was bored going around and around on the tiny circ, I would switch back to the dpns. This was a single small skein of patterned yarn mixed with some scrap solid stripes. Nice socks, perfect fit.

Love your socks, you made great use of your scraps of yarn.

I really like the FLK heel, will try the toe on my next pair of socks.

When using scraps combined to make a pair of socks, how do you keep from having knot bumps or worse, have them come apart later? I would love to make some wild socks for my GD. (My yarn is all striped.)

Wow!!!! Those socks are fantastic! I wish I could be half as creative with scrap yarn as I have sooooo much of it!!!! You are a great designer!

Thanks also for the link on how to use the FLK for a toe when you are doing toe-up. I was wondering if you were an English (thrower) knitter by any chance???? I knit continental and really need some hints on the TSP. It is very easy when I change my yarn to my right hand and throw it like the video and tutorials, but very, very cumbersome to knit it continental. If any continental readers are using this heel, I'd love to see some input from them!

Thanks,
Noreen (still blown away with your use of scrap yarn!)
