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 wondered if any of you ladies might like this poem that I wrote to include with a zippered sweater I made for one of my grandsons?

Since Nana can't be with you
Each time you're feeling bad
When you feel sad or poorly
Or when you just feel mad

She thought she'd send a cuddle
Made out of knitting wool
So you could climb inside
And give the zip a pull

With every stitch she thought of you
And said a special prayer
So every time you wore this hug
You'd know her love was there

So next time you're down in the dumps
Put on your special sweater
With Nana's love wrapped round you
You'll soon be feeling better!

(My DIL says he wore this until it was a rag and then still kept it hung on his bedpost to put on every time he was upset!)

Lovely words.
Maybe they should be written down and attached to every sweater we make.

My grandson gets upset, so when I make his jacket next I will put this poem in for him so he can always think of me being there for him. Thanks a million for this beautiful poem.

The tears are still flowing down my cheeks. May I use your poem in my step-grands Christmas gifts?

Lovely poem... when I quilted for my GK I'd always tell them they were sewn with love, andif they had a bad day to wrap up in the quilt and grandma's love would surround them... not an eloquent poem....but they do remember it!
