This flu has given me more time than usual to stare blankly at my computer screen. Here are some interesting things I’ve found:
This little application is great! Turn your written knitting directions into an easy to read chart. Simply type in your knitting instructions or click on the various knitting stitch buttons and then click *Preview Chart* or *Get Printer-Friendly Chart* and that’s it. I’ve only messed around with it a little bit, but it works really well. The page is set up so it is really easy and intuitive to use. There is a Ravelry thread here where the author is posting updates and taking suggestions.
How about this handy little gadget? I used to have a little foam version (but, of course, I lost it a long time ago…)
What a great way to use up little sock yarn scraps. Here’s the link to the pattern.
And check out these paperdolls. They look like such fun!
I seem to remember burning out a bit when I cut out paperdolls last time around (but I was probably about 8 years old, maybe I’d have more patience now).
Speaking of patience… I seriously doubt I’d ever actually make these, but I wish I would. I just love them, they are so serene and so pretty. I think they’d be worth the time.
Here’s the link to the tutorial. It looks really well explained.
