I prefer the lighter yarns for tunisian knit, the heavier ones create a stiffer fabric that I certainly wouldn't care for in a garment. Wink

Sure, it does take a lot longer. But I do prefer it. Kiss


No, you're not being difficult.  Kiss

You can't just add more stitches across, because you're correct, that will only succeed in adding more rows.  What you have to do is add borders to your image.  If you can make your design wider with borders, then it will compensate so there are the same or fewer rows (depending on your number of stitches), if that makes any sense.  That's how you get the extra stitches on the outside of the picture.  Smile

The freePatternWizard isn't making the picture's only keeping the aspect ratio of your picture so it's not distorted in the pattern.  Smile

Hope that helps!  Smile

I posted two FREE beading/jewelry making (plus one on chainmail) 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.)

Hi Terry,
 Just wanted to know if the link is ready for the preview of the version of the wotd chart??  Or perhaps it's ready for us to do our photo patterns?? I've been patintly waiting for this feature to be added.


LOL, see!  Laughing  You need a wife, too!  Laughing

I'm guessing you'd also want her to do your seaming for your flat crocheted items?

Buttons, sigh.  I can still see well enough to sew them on, and I'm the one who ends up doing it.  I've taught hubby my neat shortcut seamstress trick numerous times, but he never seems to remember how to do it.  Frown

I agree...if I had a wife, I'd let her use my sewing machine anytimeLaughing  Sewing is a hobby I would allow her.  Wink  Hee hee, think of all of the nice clothes you and I would have if we could convince our husbands to allow us wives!  Laughing

So, bummer...I have a gorgeous button-down shirt that has pretty leaf-shaped of a kind, of course, and I've worn the damn thing for maybe about 2 hours, tops...lost one of the sleeve buttons.  Yell  Guessing it fell off somewhere in my sleeve and ended up on the ground or the floor of some store or building.  Not in my home, of course, unless it's in some very obscure place, as I haven't tripped on it.  Yell

There are no extra buttons on the inside front of it.  Would you suggest removing the buttons and replacing them all with something else?  I definitely wouldn't be able to match these anywhere.  Truthfully, they're kind of a pain to button.  Though it's too bad, because they're very pretty.  Cry

See, there's a job I would give to my wife, if I had one.  Sigh.
