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.

Can any of the Tennessee fans that knit tell me if they have used an orange color yarn and what kind of yarn it was? I need the Tennessee orange color to make some scarves and don't know what to get. Thanks for your help.

Caron Simply Soft has a very bright orange. My Son-in-Law played football for Tennessee so the whole family bleeds orange. Since Tangerine is THE color this spring, I would think just about every manuifacturer will be making a bright orange. I think I saw a nice one at Hobby Lobby as well.

Lion Brand also has a Hometown Colors line. I know there is an orange in there but don't know if it matches Tennessee.

This red-heart seems close,
http://www.joann.com/red-heart-super-saver-yarn/prd28157/

But Caron's simply soft has a "Melon" color that seems to be closer
http://www.joann.com/caron-simply-soft-yarn-6oz/prd23209/

and the Red-Heart Soft yarn has a Tangerine -

And the Bernat satin yarn has a "Goldenrod" that might be close
http://www.joann.com/bernat-satin-yarn/prd23037/

Since joann seems to have a lot of these, you might try a trip to the store to see in person if there's one near you. They are also very good about returns.

PS - I might be a BullDawg fan, but I understand the importance! And I'm happy to help out a fellow SEC fan! :thumbup:

You could just switch to Crimson & Blue -- go Jayhawks! Just kidding! All jokes aside, my son played at Kansas but is now the coach at a small university where their only official color is orange. Their orange seems to be a more red-orange than Tennesse, but Hobby Lobby has some real good choices in their "Love this Yarn".

I used some Cascade worsted weight yarn in a bright orange. It was a wool/nylon blend I think. The hat turned out very nice--it was for my niece's husband who wanted to wear it hunting.

I don't think it's that exact. Any bright orange will do. I had one graduate from UT and 2 from Auburn so it gets quite interesting here especially during football season.

I used a color from Lion brand called Syracuse Orange. It was pretty close.. Forgive me,VOLS, but it was necessary at the time.

To ljbjennings from Gadsden: WAR EAGLE right back at ya! We live in Texas now, but spent 3 wonderful years in Albertville on Sand Mountain with many, many trips to the "big town" down the hill, Gadsden. (Besides shopping, we liked going to Noccalula Falls.) Then,we got our graduate degrees at Auburn. Coach Tuberville is here in Lubbock at Texas Tech now.
