Janice,

I'm absolutely melting over how gorgeous that center is!  Kiss  I like it so much better, as well!  Kiss  The original pattern is pretty, but the flowers in the center absolutely make it pop!  Kiss

Are you going to do this in different colors?  Because the white is nice...but I think it could definitely use some color to it, as you did with those beautiful center flowers!

Awww, I'll be happy to send and/or post a pic...but it's much more likely you'll finish first.  We're entirely focused on moving within the next month, and when I say the next month, I mean earlier than that, if we can.  Next week would be ideal for a start!  So pretty much everything is on hold.  I actually don't mind terribly.  We've been wanting to move for a very long time now, so this is mostly a positive thing...as long as it works out the way we want it to.

I hope you don't mind if I live vicariously (and enviously, LOL) through your work in the meantime!  Kiss


I posted two FREE knitting patterns for Kindle for today...grab them before they're gone!  (Note: you do not need to have an actual Kindle.  If you have a smartphone, you can download a Kindle reader app for FREE...if all you have is a PC, you can download to your PC...and I believe there may also be a way now of completely bypassing any kind of reader app to read directly online - though please don't quote me on that, as I'm not sure.  I find the PC reader to be quite decent for pattern content...since I don't own a Kindle, I can't say how well it works...but I would think a smaller screen would make patterns kind of difficult to read.)

Ok...just so I understand, when I get to row 2, I need to read the instructions backwards?

I posted one FREE soap making how-to book for Kindle for today...if you're interested, please grab it before it's gone!  (Note: you do not need to have an actual Kindle.  If you have a smartphone, you can download a Kindle reader app for FREE...if all you have is a PC, you can download to your PC...and I believe there may also be a way now of completely bypassing any kind of reader app to read directly online - though please don't quote me on that, as I'm not sure.  I find the PC reader to be quite decent for "how to" ebook content...since I don't own a Kindle, I can't say how well it works...but I would think a smaller screen would make a how-to book kind of difficult to read.)

Hi again, Cale71 and BeckyH.

I just sent you both a link to a test version of the freePatternWizard which includes word charts.  Let me know if it doesn't let you in!

I sent the link through the Stitchboard mail system so you should see a new message pending at the top of your screens.

This new version includes word charts and also a new crochet tunisian square stitch.

When you have it set to default to create a word chart, it also defaults to the Stitchboard Word Chart Palette.  You can override this manually in section 7.

Also, in the current version, whatever palette is selected is used for both pattern and word chart.  I'm not sure yet how best to handle this.  The Stitchboard Word Chart palette has much shorter color names and is much smaller (fewer colors) than the standard Stitchboard palette.  I guess someone could select the Stitchboard standard palette and use either letters or numbers in a word chart.  This would give a larger palette but not try to print out the long color names in the word chart.

Also, this version only has a word chart option with crochet stitch. (BeckyH, I know you're waiting for a beading word chart!)  Beading will be coming as soon as I (we) finish testing everything and like the results.  So the only time you'll see the word chart option is when crochet is selected.  (Both word chart options will always show in the right default Settings tab.)

You'll also see that when both pattern and word chart are selected, it creates two separate key sheets.  I think this looks cleaner than loading up a single key page including sample color, pattern symbol, word chart letter or number, color name, count, and whatever else.  This way you can use either section of the pdf separately.  In effect having two separate pattern "booklets" in one pdf file.

There are still two final things to address... translations of the new text into the 15 languages, and the final formatting of the pdf word chart pages.  You'll see they're relatively simple right now. BTW, the new paging will also stop leaving a stray count at the beginning of some pages).

Let me know some feedback and suggestions.

Terry
