Hi everyone!

I joined today and am excited to be in such a wonderful support group! My name is Astrid and I live in Vienna, Austria. I have never done tunesian crochet before, but want to make a large picture blanket as my first project.... Think big! Wink

Admittedly, I mainly joined because I found your link to the pattern wizard somewhere on facebook and I really love it! The possibility to choose a limited number of colors is great! I have seen many tools by now, and not a one has had this property. This is especially great if you need your pattern to be a pattern for knitting or crochet, not for embroidering....

I have tried to make my pattern using the option tunisian crochet. But the pattern I get shows very square stitches, I imagined they would be taller... I have seen a tool where you can enter the number of stitches and rows you have for 10cm and the programme adapts the stitches to your gauge. This is just an idea for a possible further development of the tool... (If you want to have a look, check http://www.theknittingsite.com/knitpro/index.php.)

I think you do a great job and I will be able to create my perfect pattern with the tool as it is as soon as I finally get my needles (they should arrive per mail today) and can do my final gauge... Smile

I am excited to start!! And I am excited to explore your wonderful site. What a great surprise it is so much more than a pattern programme! Smile

Greetings from the wonderful city of Vienna,
Astrid

Edit: The needles have not been in the mail today... I will have to wait until tomorrow. This is ALMOST UNBEARABLE!!! Undecided

I posted three 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.)
