Thank you, Amy for the suggestions.
I don't even know what a double needle is for, so my answer would be no. :? I think I will finish my straight lined scarf before trying anything fancy.

Book reviews
I think a "Book Reviews" forum would be great. There's SO many knitting books out there -- it'd be great to have a place where I could see what books other people are reading or using and what they thought of them. Amazon is good -- but its always nice to hear a review from people you "know".

(and hey -- the more book links you have to Amazon, Amy -- the better chance you'll have at getting a kick back, right?)

one thing that would be the coolest is taking a pattern and "decoding" it row by row... linking videos where needed.

Jessica, I've sort of attempted a mini-review of several popular books. I just put these book links/reviews up on the free patterns page. Since most of the books are pattern books, I figured I'd stick them there for now. Maybe one day I'll give them their own page!

Nuno, I have actually done that with three patterns. They make for huge videos, unfortunately, which are too big to put on this site! I have included them, however, in a "Bonus CD" that I include with the site CD.

Thanks for the suggestions!
Amy

Nuno,

I just re-read your earlier post, and I'll just clarify this so I'm not misleading you....

The videos on the Bonus CD are "start to finish" project videos. They show three projects from cast-on to bind-off. They are not in written format, so I don't show the pattern "line by line." But the instructions are clear, and a link to the patterns is provided for the two projects that need a written pattern.

The CD prices will go up sometime after Dec. 31st. Probably to $25. Or I may sell the CD for $20, and the Bonus projects seperately. Still working it out....

Amy
