Knitting Ideas From Creative Knitting

Posted by Jennifer Allen on April 17th, 2012
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Knitting is an unsung cool hobby to have. While some people may think it's all knitting sweaters and scarves, the only restriction really is the person's imagination. As someone instrumental in the creation of a baby Link (from The Legend of Zelda series) costume, I should know. {Ed note: leave her a comment below if you want to see an image!}

While Creative Knitting doesn't provide such a pattern, it does provide plenty of great ideas for other knitting projects, and on a regular basis.

The app is initially free with subscription packages priced between $6.99 and $15.99 to unlock all that great content. Each issue comes with a basic stitch guide, metric conversion chart, abbreviation glossary and technique reference page. Every issue also comes with two dozen or more projects covering every kind of knitware from young to old.

Whether just starting out with knitting or a seasoned pro, Creative Knitting is a great app and subscription service to glean inspiration from.

It's out now and it's an Universal app.

Quilting has been around for nearly as long as human beings have been around, so how can a modern technology like an iOS device help quilters? Quite simply actually. By providing plenty of advice in the palm of your hand!

Art Quilting Daily is an app that provides quilting fans with quilting project ideas, tips and instructions, a glossary of terms and more than 100 video tutorials, all for free.

The videos are probably going to be the big attraction here. Fortunately they're excellent quality with exclusive clips from Quilting expert Pokey Bolton, TV host and founder of Quilting Arts Magazine. New videos and blogs are added each week to ensure that content continues to be fresh.

Quilting and crafts fans would be very wise to download Art Quilting Daily for all their Quilting needs. It certainly looks comprehensive and there's no need to worry about subscriptions as all updated content is free.

It's available now for all iOS devices.

Knitting Daily Available on the App Store

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

If you love to knit and regularly cruise the internet, odds are you've stumbled over or become a regular reader of Knitting Daily, Interweave's site centered around yarn, needles and whatever surrounds them. Interweave is the masthead of a network of craft related magazines, web sites, books, television shows and communities. It's massive. I don't even knit and I know about this conglomerate and their products. Perhaps that just means I'm a bit more nerdy than I like to admit.

Knitting Daily is now available as an app for the iOS. However, don't just expect to download it and boot up a simple regurgitation of the web site you tend to frequent. This app is a collection, updated weekly, of the latest knitting videos and blog posts. The good folks at Interweave explain that users can expect to regularly learn new tips and tricks from knitting experts as they keep this mobile collection with them at all times.

Those that download the app will also be informed of new, free knitting patterns and catch exclusive expert interviews. Users will be kept abreast to information from Knitscene and Interweave Knits (magazines from the publisher). There's even a handy glossary of knitting terms for people that may fall into the beginner or intermediate categories.

This app has been designed for the iPhone and iPod. It's free and available as of January 11, 2011.

This less-than-novice knitter discovered something completely wonderful while reading up on this old craft: Yarn bombing. The act of surprise knitting objects in an urban environment is nothing short of legendary, and it explains the sweater wearing bull statue in New York on Wall Street. For some examples of yarn bombing, or guerrilla knitting, hit the Googles. Otherwise, get out your needles and this new app, and start a new project, why don't ya?
