For those on ravelry, there are a few threads on this in the "needlework on the net" forum. I didn't read everything but well, it seems things got a bit ugly between some designers, some customers of HipKnits and the owner of Hipknits/MagKnits...

Ravelry is a great and awesome tool, but with the number of designers, knitters, dyers and spinners that can be found there, sometimes it creates a situation where people try to solve their purchase/payment problems on the forums. I don't think it's the appropriate place to do that, but I guess these people didn't have any other choice...

Hi,
I have never heard of "cached files" can you explain what they are and how I can access them?
Thanks,
Jen

I really don't know the technical logistics, but pages on the Internet often get saved (sort of) at different times. So, you can access a page that was deleted through its saved or cached page. Here's the easiet way to find a page you want.
http://www.archive.org/index.php It's the Way Back Machine, just put your link in there.

I too was just about to start a pattern from MagKnits. Thanks Krystal for the tip about cached sites. I noticed you don't get images when you do it that way. Good thing the pattern doesn't have a chart.

BTW - A thread has been started on Ravelry's Needlework on the Net forum requesting Magknits designers link to their patterns new location. There are already a few that have and I'm sure more will as soon as they get it set up.

Aw, it's too bad it had to end this way without even a warning for the designers. I feel especially bad for this month's designers. But with how it blew up on Ravelry, it's not surprising.

I save every pdf pattern that I even remotely like. I wish every pattern online was pdf! Seriously. That's too handy. If I run across one that I can't live without that isn't pdf I copy/paste it in an email and save it as a draft until I can print it or have time to put it in Word.

It doesn't work for EVERY site, but a cache is basically like a peek BACK... so if a site is cancelled today you can view the 'cached' page. Usually the links and pictures with not load, but the text will... If a site changes it's layout but the cache wasn't updated yet, and you viewed the cached page, it will look like the old design, with or without the graphics if they are there...

To get my pattern I just went to google and typed "Magknits Kaleidoscope" (the name of the site and name of the pattern) and the first link was the one I needed.

here is screencap of what I mean...



instead of clicking on the obvious link, you would click the "cached" link. For me, my cached page looks like this no pictures, but the text is still in tact so I could copy the pattern.

The Way Back Machine is a website that is all about past versions of websites, but they don't always have what I am looking for. I find googling it works easier for me... if I couldn't find it that way, I'd check out the way back machine.

Your welcome, I am glad I could help you. I'm glad some of the designers got their stuff up so quick. :D

I totally agree, it really is a shame. I don't read the forums on Ravelry much at all, so I didn't see any of the blow up... It's too bad that it had to go that route.

That's a good habit to have. I am definitely going to do that from now on. Thanks.

Bummer.....
Can't the authors of the patterns publish them elsewhere, even for a small fee? That would be better than having them all disappear.

Sure would have been nice to have some heads-up on this.
