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.

Has anyone tried to make the ruffle scarf with the loom? I have knitted one, but was wondering if it was possible to "loom" it?

Thank you, I just watched the video. I had problems with the yarn staying on the needles, which is one of the reasons I like the loom knitting better than regular knitting. When I finish the scarf, I will post a picture.

Hey Kathiebee - It's all your fault!! I had no intention of making this scarf. Then there was this posting, then Hobby Lobby just happened to have the yarn in stock. Now I'm the proud owner of a lovely variegated red skein and one more item in my to-do list.
So many things to knit...so little time....(sigh)

I take full responsibility! I know what you mean. I saw a post of the flower hot pad, and went crazy, I have made 11 of them since the 11th of March. I am almost afraid to look at the pictures! :D

Well I watched the video and I may try that but I also watched a video on knitting with Sashay and I think that will be quicker and simpler than the loom. So I will see how I go on keeping the loops on my needles before I decide, but I did notice that she sometimes had to put the loops back on the pegs too when they slipped off. Not sure if I would bother with the garter stitch centre, I like lots of ruffles, my feminine side is finally comming out. :lol:. My mother would be thrilled because I was such a tomboy and she couldn't deal with that. Oh well, maybe she is watching. :)
