For Your Reading Pleasure: Fiction with a Knitting Heroine!

 Irish Legend Comes to Life: The Black Swans  is available in paperback or Kindle format. What if the old Irish stories were history, not merely legend?  And what if a humble knitter in a small town in Maine could break an ancient curse?  Put down your knitting for a couple of hours and read The Black Swans.

Tardis Hat

You can make this quick and fun Tardis Hat using the instructions generously provided by Acquanetta Ferguson via Ravelry.  I made several of these very quickly for my daughter and a couple of friends.  Make it with or without earflaps.

Fun Group for Quilters

If you would like to network with quilters from all over the world, join The Patchwork Posse.  I have seen how much work the founder, Becky, puts into this growing group and think you would find it worth your while to join.

There are no annoying daily e-mails with advertisements.  You may lurk or participate, share your project pictures, and ask questions in the forums.  There are also fun events like mini-quilt swaps.

It costs nothing to join and you just might enjoy yourself!

Make Money from Knitting? It's Possible

Here is a new resource I've found that looks both comprehensive and practical: Knitting for Profit.
It's available on ClickBank as a pdf, so you can read it on your computer or e-reader or print it out.  The author covers designing, publishing, and selling completed products at a profit.  Learn to get paid what you are worth for fine hand knitting and related services.
