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.

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.

Hi everyone,
I made a post a few days ago about t-shirt yarn. Well now I'm working with it, and look what I'm making:

Very cool ! I've made a couple of rugs, shower scrubbers & bowls from tshirt yarns ! It's fun but my hand tires too quickly :cry:

Looks good so far. I haven't seen the yarn yet but it sure would be soft and knit up rather quickly.

this is the site that I used to learn how to cut the tshirts

I'm wondering if the t-shirt 'yarn' would be easier to work with and smoother on the hands if pulled through the little gadgets used for braiding rugs. Just a thought.

I'm so interested in recycling that I think I will try this. Thank you.

I think knitting with t-shirts sounds very interesting. I have this on my "to do" list. I am currently saving old shirts from my children. I'm thinking that by the time I actually muster up enough courage to try it, I should have a large enough stash of shirts without needing to go to thrift stores.

Thank you for the post of how to cut the yarn. I had a plan to do this, but had not thought that far ahead yet. I would have cut it all apart and sewed the ends together. Or tried to cut it circularly. duh? Thanks!
