Can I be upgraded as well? I'm doing a large blanket of the chicago skyline. I'm so excited to have found this site!

Sherry,

You're very welcome!  Kiss

Actually, I love the idea of a more advanced project, particularly something intermediate.  There are a lot of projects for beginners...it's nice to have an option to stretch one's creativity!  Kiss

Ugh, trying to explain techniques in patterns can be sooooooooo difficult.  Frown

Are you going to make a non-slouchy hat version?  Smile

I think it would be wonderful for you to have different gauge versions!  Kiss  There are often things I want to make, but the gauges can be far different than what I want.  Frown

Awwww, how neat that there will be one in your future, too!  Kiss  It can be so frustrating to make so many beautiful things for others...and not have one of your own!  (LOL, sigh, I learned that one when making dishcloths.)

Welcome!

At the moment we don't have fonts built into the freePatternWizard, so the best way is to find a font that will work up clearly and write whatever you want in a graphics program and upload that image to the freePatternWizard.  If you don't have access to a graphics program, there are two very powerful - and free! - ones that are highly recommended, and I'll give you the links here:

GIMP:
http://www.gimp.org/

paint.net:
http://www.getpaint.net/

Although I don't use either of these myself (I use an ancient version of Paint Shop Pro), I've heard very good things about both.  Smile

Line,

LOL, I was definitely kidding about human size...but doesn't that look like fun?!  Laughing

See, your boyfriend could play in that if you made it human size!  Laughing

Awww, thank you for the vote of confidence.  Kiss  It would be wonderful to make one for the cat!  Though I agree, it probably shouldn't collapse in the middle for a cat.  I'm not sure where to get the foam, but no worries...there are other materials available that would keep it open.

And it's definitely got to be much larger for a cat than a piggie.  Kiss

Then again, if she doesn't like it, I call fair game!  Laughing  Still want to curl up in that!  Kiss

Do you have any other piggie toys planned?  Kiss  Those are going to be two of the happiest piggies ever!  Kiss

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.)
