If you are a knitter and are not using this fantabulous app, called Knit Companion, you are truly missing out, especially if you have a tendency to misplace your paper patterns. I am the queen of losing my paper patterns and with that paper pattern are all of the notes I have written on it, like any changes I made, which row I might have been on etc.
When you use knit companion there is NO.MORE.PAPER! Yes, you heard me right, no more paper patterns. You just import your pattern into the app, set up your key and your charts and it will keep track of where you are on the chart and the numerous row counters that let you know what row you left off on. You can also place little sticky notes where you may have made a change just like those hand written notes you write on your paper patterns.
When you are working on a few different patterns, this makes staying organized so much easier. Everything is in one neat little spot and you just open the project that you want to work on. This has eliminated the piles of paper that were always on the table next to the sofa. I LOVE it! Truly, you will not regret spending 15.00 on this program.
In addition to the program, this little clip on stand, called Felix, is a nice thing to have as well. Last winter when Dale and Carole stayed with us, she was using one of these and I could see how much easier it made following a pattern when you don't have to constantly shift your tablet. Of course I bought one right away and I use it all the time, not only for knitting, but also when I am cooking and using a recipe from the internet. Truly a nifty little addition.
Well, that's it for tonight folks. This time change always kicks my butt, I almost missed getting this post done before the day was finished. I am usually a night owl, but this week it's been a challenge to stay awake much past 11pm.
Have a good evening!!
