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.

Can anyone tell me where I can visit discount yarn outlets on my route to Florida from Maine? Does anyone have a favourite? In Canada, we have a great yarn outlets in Ontario where they sell discontinued yarns and overstocks and mill ends at incredibly low prices but I cannot find any such places in the USA. I contacted one US yarn company but all they supplied me with was their web site where I could enter a zip or postal code and get a list of stores that sell their yarns in an area of up to 100 miles of that zip code. That unfortunately is not what I am looking for! I know the route we plan to take but I certainly do not know the different zip codes for the areas we plan to travel through. Can anyone help?

Hi, There is a place in Long Island called Smiley's. They are having a wall to wall sale from Sept12 to the 17th. They also have a web site. I will be going there during the sale. Most of the time they are only open on Friday and Sat I think. You should check the web site.
Have a safe trip. Check the routes down here to be sure the roads are not still closed if you are heading out this week.
Happy Knitting.

It probably is not on route but I think I have heard that WEBS has an outlet somewhere in east. Someone will be along to correct me or give more info, I'm sure. What a wonderful trip. Hope you have a big vehicle and find lots of bargains.

I like the Spinrite outlet in Listowel best. We were on vacation at the time and I filled the back seat with green garbage bags full of yarn. Couldn't see out the rear view window so you can imagine the amount of yarn. Great deals!
There is also one in Toronto (forget the name) which is also great.
It is all in bins and priced by the ounce. (less than $1 per ounce) I bought several cones of yarn that were over a pound each.

This is not a discount yarn outlet, but has a clearance section. It is really worth a visit. Next door is Keepsake Quilting.
Patternworks, Route 25 at Senter's Marketplace, Center Harbor, NH. This is in the Lake Winnipesaukee area.

Webs is in North Hampton, Mass. Its about 15 min north on Route 91 from the Mass Pike. It is near Holyoke. Went yesterday!!! They have their own brand of yarn, Valley Yarn, at great prices! In August, they have 20% off if you spent $60, and 25% off if you spent $120! Nice store!It was a 2 hour ride one way for me, and I will definately go back!

If you are in Maine you might want to visit Halcyon in Bathe just to go. It is not an outlet but they have gorgeous yarns.

Not to be a stickler but the borough of Queens is located on Long Island--I live there--on Long Island.

Sorry, Kippyfure, although Queens is on the island we call Long Island, it is generally NOT considered part of "Long Island," as Nassau and Suffolk Counties are. Woodhaven, where Smiley's is located, is in the county of Queens, part of NYC.
