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.

First name:

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.)

Too windy for an umbrella today!


It often is here too! so I have a parka nylon caftan thingy I sewed and a Taslon skirt- that I can use- in the wind, and in winter my jacket goes under as well- I become very bulky but fairly water proof!

I knew that....I'm sorry I wasn't clear....do you use the grains for the bags or the flour? I know it may sound silly but I just wondered if you could use the flour or if it would "puff" out through the fabric?


The ones I have used have all had the grain, not flour!

Well the most exciting news from the past is that KathleenDoris' DD had her baby boy and is named Freddy. Also, Bonnie and Ray (Railyn's DH) both came through their surgery with flying colors! So great to see good news abounding.

Hi, Gwen - I'll be fine - I think it's just the mid-winter blahs. Tired of the cold and snow - we haven't got as much as Caren, but a lot for this area. Just tired of looking at white - green is so much better. That's why I love Purple's pictures - she's at least 2 months ahead of here. Have to keep hoping!! Oh well, maybe Beth will bring me something dark and red as "pay"(LOL) Love, Paula

I went back & read what I missed the last 2 days, what a chatty group.

Kate, your baby dress is so cute.

KathleenDoris, the sweatersfor your grandsons are beautiful.

Julie, your Guernsey is going to be a work of art, can't wait to see it done.

Kathy love the tatting, I have to try that someday.

TNS, great photos, SanFrancisco is on my bucket list

Well, I'm all caught up again, so I'm off to hit the sack. David should be home tomorrow, he went through parts of Ohio today, he had to pick up in Toledo after his drop off this am at Tokonsha, MI, he was parked somewhere in Iowa when he called earlier. He said the slipper things fit okay, and were keeping his feet warm, YAY!! I told him to send me a pic of them on his feet so I could post, but I'll probably have to remind him again. Oh well at least they are wearable.
Good night everyone, have a fantastic night.
Hugs

I have quite a way to go yet, and some design decisions to be made!

What kind of fabric is suitable to put in a microwave? I never thought of needing to check!


I made my bags with cotton sheeting & cotton quilting leftovers & have had no problems. Some nylons & synthetics might burn.

I used grain, I don't think flour would work as it would puff but a friend of mine used both rice & buckwheat to make them.
