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.

Remember me to Ilene if you get the chance. We were just little girls and lost touch but she was a good friend I've always remembered.

Good for you. I have been in your situation before too. When the hubby goes with you and then at the event goes his own way, that is such a HORRIBLE feeling. I have found a threat with the knit needles whether the threat is to knit with them or POKE someone with them, they are a VERY useful tool.

Before you go to the sale ask yourself a few things
Is this the only sale the shop will ever have in my life time?

Than count how many UFO's you have waiting to be completed.

Than count how to be made patterns you have waiting to be started, does it include the yarn.

And than ask your self Do I rally NEED more yarn.

This is the "conversation" I have with myself about purchasing anything. SOMETIMES it works with the yarn. I currently am working on making a dress for my niece's baby with yarn I found at a sidewalk sale the other day. I am using a christening pattern but instead of using thread, I am using a fine yarn that is a pretty peach color. Working good so far. I have to work slowly, the yarn separates easily. But it is soft and REALLY pretty. It was $0.99 each 50g skein.

Can't live without can't live with. Be I'll keep him even when he teases me about too much yarn, and why am I froggin. I don't think I can teach him to knit. I do not want to let him do everything I do. This way it just keeps him quessing. Maybe I will make him something. Wonder what I can knit while he plays with tools in garage.What have you knit for your man? happy knitting.Linda

That reminds me of a grisly little short story by Roald Dahl called "Lamb to the Slaughter." Alfred Hitchcock later adapted it for his television program, starring a young Barbara Bel Geddes (Miss Ellie of "Dallas" fame). A wife who murders her husband with a frozen leg of lamb cooks and serves it to the investigating officers, smiling as they discuss what heavy object might have been used as the murder weapon. Little do they suspect that they are eating it!

Was not that just the BEST episode! I still refer to it.

It's the only episode I remember, even though all of them were great. The whole premise was so darned clever!!!

The Big Guy gave me a "look" when I bought all that yarn; but now, I practically have to pull a gun on him to get his "blankie" away from him long enough for laundering. He grinned like the Cheshire Cat when I gave it to him, too!

BTW, were you a grown woman when you met him?
Are you still a grown woman?
Sometimes THEY think we are their children, don't they?
Don't wanna live with 'em...don't wanna live without 'em.... :roll: Sheeesh!

Tommorow is a yarn sale my husband wants to hide my charge card and wallet for the weekend . He thinks I should not go to the LYS for a large yarn sale. I guess I need to put him out with the cat. Of course I am planning on going, just not with him. How do I get my new things is the question. I will pay for things for cash I keep in a knitted sock. Where should I hide my new goodies? Happy knittting Linda
