New!  We've just added the palette for Deborah Norville Everyday Yarn!  If you knit and/or crochet, this is for you.  This is a beautiful yarn with a nice feel to it, a good alternative in worsted weight acrylic!  (Thank you again to BetwixtTheStitch!)

Welcome to Stitchboard!  Feel free to sit and stay awhile.  Check out our new Premier features.  In addition to the ability to create larger patterns (up to 500 stitches wide), illusion knitting and private labeling (no more worries about editing those pesky and messy PDFs), we've just introduced Filet Crochet, our most popular request!  We have many more features planned, too!  Laughing

It's going pretty slow but it's till coming together. I'm crocheting this from a graph pattern that I made from this site.  Thank you so much for the use of the program!

I am so thrilled to have found stitchboard community and its awesome pattern wizard!

I have been cross stitching (in addition to other crafts) for years... since I was a child.
Over the past 10 years, aging eyes forced the wearing glasses and stitching 32 & 28 (my fav) counted cross stitching was pushed to the side for other crafts... but I missed it. Sad

I recently discovered a new craft form that is based on cross stitch but instead of thread, it uses an adhesive canvas and small resin faceted rhinestones.... called Diamond Painting. I LOVE IT!!! It has rejuvenated my joy to "cross stitch" ... and thrilled I can do it with my own patterns!

So, I hope no one freaks out if I post something that looks like cross stitch but very sparkly. lol Smiley Look forward to meeting new crafters and again, so glad I found this site!


Hee hee, that's so me!  Laughing  I would definitely be doing that.  If our old washer broke down and we had to have a new one, why settle for something without a wool program?  We'd be spending the money, anyway!

Oh, I didn't know it turned off the...agitation?  That actually makes sense.  Smile

It probably really helps to make the settings yourself.  Kiss  That's what I'd want to do!

LOL, true...if you didn't make it and she laughed it off, anyway, then it was perfectly good for you to get a better laugh out of it!  Laughing

You're so right...when they're small, of course it doesn't take a long time to make a sweater like that, but at 14-15 years old, they'll need larger clothes that will take longer to make!  Especially if they get big quickly, which can happen!


I absolutely love this site can I please get an upgrade as well


I'm not sure where the names came from, and as far as the colors that aren't found, they've been discontinued, as DMC "cleans house" with colors here and there, bringing out new ones.

According to DMC, the correct names for the colors that still exist and what you've listed are:
326 V DK Rose
407 DK Desert Sand
415 Pearl Gray
420 DK Hazelnut Brown

As for which ones go from light to dark, I haven't seen any definitions beyond color names; DMC doesn't have any kind of list I've ever found defining colors from light to dark.  So I don't really know the answer to which colors are lighter and which are darker; you may have to simply eyeball it and pick the ones you think look lighter and darker.  Since you do have both brown-gray and silver-gray represented, they may be very close in shading and more a matter of opinion than an exact measurement of light/dark coloring.

Meanwhile, I'll have Terry (Support) remove those colors you mentioned that have been discontinued.  Smile
