Thanks Lisa and Echo! I appreciate the advice!
What I ended up doing was re-sending it to myself with the link opened ( the actual webpage ), then went into File and saved it into my documents. From there it was easy to pick it up with the Nero program. I even found that if I opened the schematic page before saving it, it seems to work as well without being connected. A bit complicated or time consuming maybe, but it worked, and in the end, that´s all that counts. I´ve burned over 50 patterns - when am I really going to get all them done???
And I have sworn off knitting websites - at least for a while. Have cleaned out tons and the computer seems happier ( and quicker! )
We´re having lousy weather - good excuse to knit, don`t ya think? i¨m off..............
