Here's a little Korean knitting game. Click on the pink ball to start, then use the arrow keys to "knit." Use the space bar to switch colors. Brings knitting at your desk to a whole new level

Now, that's kind of fun...time suck a whole a new way! :lol:
I can't get it to switch colors though. I hit the space bar, but then I get a red circle thing. :??

When you press the spacebar, that's how you switch colors. It's sorta stranded work. :thumbsup: You wait until you're directly over the stitch that you need a different color and then you switch. Hope this helps.

I guess the only time they want you to use red is on the hearts and the horizontal line. If you get the x, then you're using the wrong color. I'm not sure how long the timer is, though. 2 minutes??

I feel more coordinated doing the real thing. And that music's a bit much.

I just don't "get it" :wall: What exactly are you supposed to do?

:verysad: The "email police" here at work won't allow me to go to that site. :verysad:

I finally figured it out and had it going pretty well but only made it up half way before running out of time. Had to frog a few stitches a couple of times. Cute.

Ginny, After you click on the pink ball to start, use the arrow keys on your computer to "knit" back and forth. When you come to the end of a row, just click the arrow key one more time to knit the next row. Use the space bar to switch colors back and forth between pink and red. The only time you're supposed to use red is on the horizontal lines and the hearts. The rest of the stitches are pink. A circle with an X will appear if you have the wrong color.
Hope this helps,

That is really strange. Don't know if it would replace my knitting need, but it would be amusing for a minute! Thanks for sharing.

i kind of wish there were more levels!
Thought I was going great guns till the whole thing stopped - seems I was out of time...
I never was a fast knitter. :teehee:

You know it would be a very helpful tool if you could create your own patterns and choose your own colors! Sort of a visual way to design a pattern. Wish I knew how to do stuff (create software) like that!
