Why Would You Ever Want to Pay For Knitting and Crochet Patterns or Lessons When You Can Get All That for Free?
Read this:
 

We have some of the most skilled knitters and crocheters in the world posting patterns and techniques like you've never seen before. And some of them only post on our website and nowhere else, so you won't find these patterns anywhere else no matter how much time you spend searching! So keep reading.

If you are a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or a professional knitter or crocheter, 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/crochet forum digest with the latest 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.

Note to crocheters: We cover both knitting and crochet on our website. The name Knitting Paradise is just a matter of history of how this website was started. These days, close to 50% of content on our forum is about crochet. So it doesn't matter if you primarily knit or crochet (or if you only crochet), you'll still find just as many patterns, tips, and tutorials that are relevant to your specific interests.

• 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.

From El. D. Mouzakis, made in Greece
100% mercerized cotton
125 gram skeins
230 m or 249 yds per skein
Gauge: 22 stitches in 4"
on 4 mm or US size 6 needles
Machine wash, dry flat or tumble dry low

This is a high-quality cotton yarn that has a nice drape and stitch definition. This came from a LYS. It is not dishcloth cotton.

There are four colors here. The red is darker and richer than the picture looks. Next to the red is beige/light brown that is darker than the picture. Gray and green are pretty accurate. If you want to find a color card online, I'll tell you the color numbers so you can perhaps see them better. I can't take the photos off another website.

Red ---- SOLD
Beige ------ I have five.
Gray ------ I have five.
Green ------- I have six.

Ten dollars a skein. They are big skeins with good yardage. In fact, I don't know offhand who else puts yarn up in 125 gram skeins. Yes, these have been out of the box!

I prefer Paypal, please.

Hi gawley,

The price for Priority Mail International is $46 and for First Class International Parcel is $27. Do you want to go with one of those? These are the two cheapest options.

There seems to be more and more of this with people putting not only their email address but mailing addresses on the forum openly. It amazes me how people post this so openly on a public forum. I have even seen people post their phone numbers.

I wish people would be more careful with posting this info in a PM.

Computers are endlessly popular and some people are just new to the world of sites like this. I don't think anybody who contributes to general conversations is a danger, but you don't even have to sign in here to be able to read remarks. Just recently there was a nice wallpaper advertised on Weatherbug, and I clicked on it, to get it for me. It was fish swimming back and forth. How innocent does that sound, and on Weatherbug on top of it. What I got was not fish swimming but some nasty thing trying to take over my computer, and it took a good while to thrash it into submission. I was very disappointed by the whole thing, and will no longer click on any ads there.

Well, nobody is angry with you. We are all concerned about the wrong people getting information from lots of people here. You can alter your post for an hour after it's up, I think. After that, no. I'm sending you a Paypal invoice to your email address momentarily. OK?

You can send the ADMIN a PM with the link to your post and ask them to remove the information, give the her user name so they will know what you are referring to. I had someone post their info on one of my posts and sent the ADMIN this info and they removed the post with the personal info.
