Oh no! Surprised In your pillow?  Tricky little things, those craft supplies.

No doubt at all, they want proper attention. They want to be made into beautiful, sparkly things.

I posted one FREE cross stitch pattern for Kindle for today...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 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, too, get overwhelmed when there are too many things to do.  Frown  Especially around the holidays.

I never had a problem with wools, but then, I didn't have access to them for quite some time after I learned to crochet and knit.  The ones I used were soft and didn't make me itch.

Now they have superwash wools, which are made to be washed!  Unfortunately, it's not something I can get locally.  Our LYS went away many years ago.  All that are left around here are the big box stores, and I've never seen superwash in any of them, other than Wool Ease.  Frown  Which is fine, I guess, but I don't know that the wool content is very high!

Oooh, thanks for letting me know about the stitch count deal with TKS!  I'm so glad the number doesn't change drastically with a bigger hook.  All I know is that it was soooooo difficult to work with, and that stupid H hook being way too small was obviously the reason.  Yell

Is the P hook simply much too big?  Frown  I really haven't found much that works with the P hook...just once in a great while.  So it's definitely nice to have, but it seems to mostly be the right size for the chunky yarns, not WW or smaller.

I've been having difficulties generating paterns from uploaded photos (I keep getting a message stating an internal error). I've even gotten this with photos I'd previously used to create patterns. It's not every single photo (but 4 out of 5 don't work). This is seriously bumming me out because I think Pattern Wizard is the most awesome tool.

Is there something wrong with my photos (none of them are over 3 MB) and all are jpg files. Or is this a bug? I'm trying to create crochet patterns. Please help! I want to be able to use Pattern Wizard again!

hi i am new to this type  of pattern but i love it when the image prints it states 150by 270 is this going to be an afgahn which i hope still new   sharane46
