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.

Unlike other websites, we don't try to pitch specific brands of hooks or needles, yarn, or paid tutorials, while collecting sales commission.

Instead, we have other people, who are great knitters and crocheters, share with you what they know about knitting and crochet. What accessories they use, which yarn is the best for which type of project, which techniques work and which don't.

It's all completely unbiased. Our users simply have no reason to lie to you. They are people just like you.

And we provide a free platform for you and them to communicate. So you get to discover this information straight from the source, from people just like you, not from editors of some magazine or sales reps of some company.

This is what makes us different from other knitting and crochet websites out there that try to sell you something while claiming they are trying to help you.

If you are a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or a professional knitter or crocheter, then the benefits of signing up for our free weekly knitting/crochet 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.

Here is how to proceed and what to expect:

Enter your name and e-mail address below, and you'll be instantly added to our knitting and crochet mailing list distribution. You'll receive a one-time confirmation e-mail. Right after that, the first e-mail with today's digest will be forwarded to you.

My DH and I are ardent fans of Judge Judy. We wondered when a plaintiff is awarded large sums of money, how they get it when the defendant is out of work or has no money available. Has anyone out there the answer ?

I too love Judge Judy. I often wonder how they pay and does the winner ever get their money.

the show pays it up to $2500.00.

Does anyone know if you can watch Judge Judy online?

If you have a judgement against you then the court can come after your assets or future wages beyond what the show pays. Remember OJ? He lost a civil case and always claimed he had no money....

I like her too. Sometimes I think she is a little harsh with her answers.

I love Judge Judy, and sometimes when I think she's a bit harsh, I remember that she is privy to information that I do not have. She does have some really dumb people on her show. I, for one, would not go on national TV and tell the world that I had vandalized someone's property or that I had slept with someone other than my husband. But, for some reason, I am a rule/law follower. I guess that is the teacher in me. I love Judge Judy's comments such as, "don't pee on my leg and tell me it's raining." Recently, I heard her say "you cooked your goose ten minutes ago." The girl replied, "I don't eat goose."
Such intelligence! But it was entertaining.

That's only if it is a judgment from a "real" or constitutional court, not a TV show "court" like Judge Judy. Often in a real court the prevailing plaintiff ends up with a judgment in his or her favor, but never collects because the defendant has no income or assets. Plaintiff just ends up with a piece of paper saying "yes, your'e right." Sometimes it just isn't worth the cost or aggravation of filing suit.
