Sock software for Mac

My partner, Paul, just found Mac software to help you create sock patterns. In the web page's words ... "Use your choice of yarn, your gauge, and take your knitting to new heights of perfection." The software is called Sock Wizard Mac and costs $34.95 US. I'm not a sock knitter (yet!) but thought some of you might be interested in the software.

Organic cotton yarns

Infiknit is a needlework kit and pattern distributor with an inventory of over 1000 patterns created by more than 40 designers from 3 countries: Canada, the United States and Britain.

One cool product they have is EcoKnit Yarn - 100% organic coloured cotton yarn. It’s apparently great for knitting (I haven't tried it myself yet) and great for the environment - the cultivation of cotton is said to account for 24% of world pesticide use.

Here are the yarny details in yarny-speak: 100% certified organic cotton grown in colors, 20 to 22st to 4in on 3.5 to 4.5mm needles. Deliciously soft lustrous yarn in 50g, 100yd skeins. Bagged 10 to a bag for stores. : Here's the link

Hello Everyone!

Hi there, My name is David, I am new to the site and fairly new to knitting. I learned as a child and just now picked it up again in the last year and a half. I am interested in Intarsia and am wondering if anyone had any tips! I also wanted to say hi to everyone!

Great find on the Wheel Rowen!

David
