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.)

Sherry,

I'm beginning to notice that about TKS.  It's good for some things, but not terribly useful on its own, IMO.  I can't believe that I made a scarf with it many years ago.  And it was a pretty large scarf, too!

True, it does make sense!  Well, also, since it looks so much like knitting, at least the stitch shape conforms to a real knit stitch.

Soooooooooo glad your back is better!  Kiss  Don't go too nutty again, okay?  Kiss  Just enough to have fun without back pain.  Wink

Sherry,

I'm afraid I suffer from the same affliction.  Wink  They follow me...now they're jumping on my head and screaming when I'm awake!  Surprised  They will not leave me alone.

Same with the hooks and needles...and beads, too.  I think it's a conspiracy.  I think they plan late at night to trip me up during the day until they get the attention they crave.  I found an errant piece of yarn under the covers today.  Is that not suspicious?  Because I think that's suspicious!  (Glancing furtively around.) 

How does that saying go?  Just because you're crazy doesn't mean they're not out to get you...  Laughing

In addition to cleaning up some screen formatting, and in preparation of adding new image manipulation options, I just added a fun, new "swirl" image enhancement function in section 8.

In most cases you won't use this option, but if you want to play around with an image (like make a drawing of a pumpkin scarier), you might want to play around with this new option.

Below is an example of a pumpkin drawing, along with 3 various levels of "swirl" applied to it:



The "swirl" function also works on regular photos and images, not just drawings and does the swirling from the center of the image.

Again, you normally would have a reason to use this function but it's the first of a bunch of upcoming "fun" enhancements.

To use it, simply use the slide bar in section 8 called "Swirl", or if your browser does not support the slide bar, simply enter a value in the box.  The value of 0 disables the swirling.  Any value between 1 and 359 varies the rotation amount.

Have fun!
