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.)

I ran upon the Bernat twist and twirl yarn in a local store that carries everything from nuts, bolts, camping supplies and of course crafts! Loved the scarves i made, knitted some and used the looms for some but now they sold out of the yarn and are having trouble getting more, guess it's a hot item. I contacted Michaels and Hobby Lobby who say they never heard of it! Does anyone know if someone else carries it or do I have to order on line? Everyone loved the scarves I made for presents.

I know it's made by Bernat and can find them on the net, just was hoping I didn't have to wait for ever for an order to come in! Guess I'm impatient! For the first time I can ever remember I have all of my projects finished and am ready to start some small things until my next "big" project. Guess it's back to dish cloths!

JoAnns,may carry this yarn, they carry a lot of Bernat yarn on line and when ever I order from them I recieve it very fast. (a couple of days) . They probably would give you a better price too. Also Micheal's may carry it on line, check the sites.

The Bernat website says it's new. I checked the Jo-Anns site. They don't carry it yet. Michael's online doesn't have it, either. Just too new.

Bernat Twist and Twirl is almost the same as the "Ballerina" yarn sold here...

http://beadadyx.onlineyarnstore.com/sku:fnt2-20673

I purchase from this supplier about every two weeks and love the yarn and service. It takes only 2 day to reach me in NJ. I just got an order yesterday(Thursday) that I placed on Tuesday. I have some of the "Ballerina Glitz - Dark Green/Silver" that I just ordered and could part with a skein or two is you are interested in trying it out. PM me if you have any questions. I attached a picture of the yarn I have.

Oh, and the thing I love about this supplier is that all proceeds go to a ministry to help families in Guatemala and Jamaica as part of their Missions Ministry. What a Purpose!

Just a "for your information" - this yarn is made in China.

Know some folks like to know source of what they buy.

Happy New Year everyone.

I always thought Ice Yarn was made in Turkey. This site seems to indicate that: http://www.iceyarns.com/about_us

You could also try Mary Maxims. They might have it.

Tyratim - that shade of green and silver looks very pretty. I love green.

Ice Yarns are made in Turkey but Bernat's website says the Twist and Twirl is a product of China.

Online sites offer either a phone number or contact via email. Response is rapid, usually.
