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.)

* This is still the same two-book bundle on soap making and also making body butter and lotion.  Smile


I posted three 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.)

Hi, mdory.

I just upgraded your account to allow up to 300 stitches across and 1000 down.

I've also noted that we've had this additional request.  I suspect that we may soon raise member limits a bit.

Linsie,

Hi, and welcome!  Smile

The patterns created with the Free Pattern Wizard aren't keyed to a specific gauge.  It's too complex even for me to understand, but it has to do with the math involved with graphics, which doesn't match up with the math involved with knitting.  And as you've undoubtedly noticed, though you can swatch to your heart's content, the fact is that your gauge will also not be an exact science, as even measuring swatches is inexact!

The best we can do is to offer a rectangular stitch which should fairly closely mimic a knit stitch.  It's doubtful there's a lot of variance in ratios between stitches, even with carefully measured gauges.

That said, are you finding that your pictures are distorted?  If so, we'd definitely like to know!  Smile

When creating Pdf crochet and knitting charts, the symbols were shifted slightly to the left and not centered.

I just did an adjustment so the .pdf symbols are better centered horizontally.

They're not perfectly centered and this will continue to bug me until I recreate the symbol character set.  When I first created it, I didn't pay a lot of attention to centering them in the frames.  I've been waiting until I get a bit further in the development to re-do the character set.  After that, all symbols will be perfectly centered, both horizontally and vertically for all stitches.  At that time I'll also re-arrange what symbols come up in what order and potentially replace some.

I'd also love to hear feedback regarding what symbols you'd like to see, and symbols currently being used that you'd rather not see.  This is a custom character set so I'm totally flexible.

For now, you'll see better centering with crochet and knitting .pdf charts.
