Some Stuff to Celebrate!

Happy 4th of July.

 

We have a few exciting announcements…

The French Knot is now a knitCompanion Affiliate.

“What is knitCompanion?” you ask.  knitCompanion is an amazing iPad app that transforms your PDF patterns into highly interactive knitting instructions (iPhone and iPod Touch too). It is a complex app that allows you to easily read charts, count rows, and make notes.  Check it out here.  Since we’ve discovered it, we have been singing its praises to all who will listen.

Well now it gets even better.  knitCompanion has expanded their offerings to the new kClub.  kClub is an annual club where members can interact with designers, fiber artists and crafters.  There are Designer Spotlights, KALs, Special Events and special knitCompanion training sessions.  Read more about it here.

The French Knot is now a knitCompanion affiliate.  We are very excited about this partnership and hope to soon be knitCompanion instructors, and offer formal, detailed classes on the many features of knitCompanion.

Check out knitCompanion if you haven’t already.  If you already have knitCompanion, consider joining kClub.  Stop by for a chat (or email, or call) if you have any questions.

 

Another exciting announcement is… drumroll please…

Ravelry pattern sales

You can now purchase patterns available on Ravelry through The French Knot.  If you don’t know about Ravelry, you should check it out.  Take a moment, we can wait for you…

… Ravelry has a huge database of patterns by thousands of designers.  Many are free, some are not.  For various reasons someone may not be able to purchase directly through Ravelry.  Now a large number of those patterns are available to purchase through The French Knot.  This is a great service and we are very excited to be able to offer it.

 

Remember how I told you about Meg, Leona and Georgie going to market?

 

It wasn’t all work and no play…

  1. I got Knit companion a few months ago but have not ” learned ” it yet. I want a lesson and how do I sign up for kclub?

    • Jane,

      We’d be happy to get you started. Just bring your iPad in and a project you want to start. If you want to join kClub, click the link on the blog. That will take you to the knit Companion website. If you go to the kClub website from our website (through the link), then we will be credited with sending you and they give us a commission. Call or email if you have any more questions.

  2. I am a friend of Sarah Ann Dailey and would like to be added to your e-mail list.

    Thank You,
    NA
