News: 4-8-14 Just thought we'd mention that the software on the Stitchboard servers is not affected by the 'OpenSSL Heartbleed' bug in the news. Your information here remains secure.

Wow, it's great to hear our software helped you!  Smile

I completely understand about limiting colors.  Too few, and you can't tell what the pattern is.  Too many and it becomes cost prohibitive as well as impossible to find that many colors!

The only thing I can think of offhand is perhaps using more comic strip type images as opposed to photos, which is what I imagine you're using?  Comic strip drawings would tend to use fewer colors, unlike photos, which can have millions of colors.

Hope that helps!  Smile


You're very welcome!  Smile

No worries...we'll adjust the Free Pattern Wizard as would be unhelpful for it to be producing the wrong results.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention!  Smile

Oh, and what a shame about your yarns being so limited.  Frown

Hi, Kathy.

The patternWizard has been pretty thoroughly tested with Firefox so I think it's going to primarily be settings and internal things that I can address.

Not being able to see your original yet, I can't tell by your picture above what is not working.

SO, I'll send you an email and you can reply to that and attach your original image from which you're trying to create a pattern.

I always jump at the opportunity to use actual images that are causing problems because I can fix things that I don't even know that are broken, and at the same time help others who may be having the same problem.

Thanks for your patience.


I posted two FREE soap making books 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.)

Here's the circle (you must join to see posts):

I'm Claudia and I'm from little Rhode Island.  I've been knitting off and on for years and only recently decided I wanted to learn how to add beads.  That, in turn, brought me to beaded jewelry, both knitted and not.  I've been online for weeks now, searching out videos and any information I can find to teach myself all sorts of jewelry making and beading.  And I'm having the time of my life. 

Can't remember how I found this site, but I'm so glad I did.  Wow, there are so many talented people here!  I've just finished my first knit/beaded necklace.  I'd love to post a pic but my computer won't recognize my camera (don't you just love technology?!!) so I guess I'll post pics when I can. 

Meanwhile, I'll be roaming the halls of this site in search of....well, anything and everything.  Smiley

Nice to meet you all
