In case you’re like me and you just can’t get enough applications for your iPhone, check out these great knitting applications from Michael Golden at Ashland Sky. These pictures are just screen shots taken from my iPhone.
I never had any idea why you’d want to take a screen shot of your phone, but it can be really handy. If you don’t know how to do this, it’s really simple: just hold down the home button (the round one) and then click the top button, the screen will flash and the screen shot will be added to the Camera Roll on your iPhone.
iKnit Needle Sizer:
This one is so simple, it’s silly. Just lay your needle or crochet hook on your screen and match it up.
Definitely a needle gauge you’ll always have with you – and a real steal at 99 cents! Those plastic ones I am always buying and breaking/losing are at least $3-5! I just have to get used to having this with me all the time and remember to use it.
This one is also pretty much self explanatory and SO useful – I can’t wait to need to use it.
Line up your swatch at one peg, slide the other one to the edge of the stitches you want to measure, count the number of stitches between the pegs, move the slider to that number and voila your gauge!
As a bonus, you could measure just about anything up to 2.82″ just by moving the pegs and using them like a little pair of calipers! Cool, eh? It also has a little ruler built in (inches and centimeters).
I love this, no more fiddly-effing around with a little window or a ruler to check gauge, just drag the little peg Ingenious, I tell you. This one is only 99 cents, as well. Wow! These two apps are the best $1.98 I’ve spent in a very long time!
I haven’t said this in a couple of days, but what in the heck did I do without an iPhone? How do people live without one?Tags: gauge, iPhone, knitting
