Melanie,

I'll look for the purple fizz when I go to Jo Ann, I had thought of doing it in the blues because you know, it's safe. Wink

There are so many really pretty variegated, I've just always preferred to put my colors where I want them. But I have a feeling this pattern will show them off. Smile

I posted one FREE crochet book 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.)

Sherry,

I'm just so not talented with stringing.  The color combos, bead sizes, charms...it all doesn't go together well for me.  Frown

I agree...there are a lot more possibilities for crochet.  Kiss  Because stringing really is only good for jewelry.  You can't string a scarf, blanket, hat, pullover, cardigan...really, you can make jewelry, but not much else, perhaps a few incidental things, like eyeglass cords.

My TV shows are back on, so I'll be able to work again!  Smile

We received the following question through the freePatternWizard question tab:

Quote:
I am new to this site... I did get several pages for a design but I keep getting " sorry you sent an invalid image file type or size. check our allowed image types and upload size.... reenter new information below... I have done the same thing as my first one.... what am I doing wrong


As I mentioned in the FAQs area, there can be several reasone for this.

Possible reason 1 is that you sent the patternWizard a .png, .bmp, .tif, .psd, .svg, .pcx, or .wbmp and you're not a logged-in member.  Until you log in, you can only use .gif or .jpg images. Once logged in, you can use .gif, .jpg, .png, .bmp, .tif, .psd, .svg, .pcx, or .wbmp images.

Possible reason 2 is that your image contains invalid formatting codes. This can simply be because your particular graphics program that generated the image saves in a non-standard format.

Possible reason 3 is that your image is in a slightly different  format of a particular image type. For example, there are 6 different formats of .tif images.  I try to update the freePatternWizard as I find an image that uses an unsupported format.  Since additional alternate formats of image types are being created once in awhile, it sometimes boils down to the simple fact that I have not tested all possible variances.  BUT, I generally can add support as I find a format-related issue so I always ask people if they'll email a copy of an image with which they're having a problem.  Note that saving your image here in the community will not help since the Community reformats the image and we lose the incompatibility.  So normally someone should post a problem here in the Community and I'll send them an email to which they can reply and attach the troubled image.  The more I can address the unsupported image formats, the fewer "invalid image" errors the program will generate.  So, over time, it should be pretty trouble-free.

Possible reason 4 could, in rare cases, be due to malicious code embedded in an image. This will not generally happen when you generate the image yourself with a graphics program, but can happen if you download an image from somewhere else.  I can tell you that the freePatternWizard does try to catch such image files and give an error.

So if you have an image that the freePatternWizard is complaining about, let me know through the Community and we'll try to work together to solve it.  And again, as I update the patternWizard to support a particular variance of an image format, it will help everyone in the future.
