I want to make a graph with the logo from Southeast Missouri University.  I can only find it on their web site.  Is there a way for me to get that here

I would appreciate it greatly if you can bump my accout to the 300 stitch limit.

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.)

Hello, I'm a brand new member and have just created my first pattern.  Does the count column show me the number of stitches that will be in the final piece per colour?  How do I know how much DMC thread to purchase?  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

Dear Melanie!

Thank you so much for complementing me on my crocheting and on my English! (thank God there are online dictionaries!!!) Smiley

You are correct, it does look vertical. I have measured 10 stitches vertically and horizontally and they differ from each other for about 1mm. I am still in the process of making my pattern perfect. Terry has helped me a lot by upgrading me to 300 stitches in the pattern wizard, so I am not yet decided how large the picture will be. I am planning a blanket for my boyfriend with the logo of our favorite soccer club, so I now have to figure out how large to make the logo and how broad the edges around it will be. This will be a nice work for this weekend! Smiley 

I am, in fact, not only a knitaholic, but I am also a numbers geek. I have made an xls-sheet, where I can input the colors via a number (1-6), and it will then calculate how much percent each color makes from the whole to determine my yarn needs. Of course, the sheet is formatted, so that when I enter a number it automatically shows the color it is supposed to be... :p

I can't wait to have the perfect pattern, because based on that, I know how much yarn to order (how many skeins of each color) and then I will still have to wait for the shipping...

Fortunately, there are still a few Christmas present projects I have to finish, so I am not bored until I can finally start with the blanket! Smiley 

Once again, I have to say how happy I am that I found your page. It is really wonderful here! THANK YOU! Smiley
