Techie Knitting Tools

I was having problems last night getting the turning of a heel that I am making up on my own (sort of....will explain this at a later time), so I did several Google searches (don't ya just love Google????). I did searches for: free sock pattern generator and free knitting software. Though I found some free things for sock pattern generators but not much under free software (of course). If you simply do a search for sock pattern generators you come up a list of websites. Now the software I found was not really free (except for Demo versions or somje small organizing type tools) but they seem to be decent and affordable.

Oh...my guy has a blog now...so hereis a shameless plug for him here: "RenoGeek.com Blog"

Hi, I found your blog from your comments to the Harlot. As far as advice on knitting lace, check out this lace tutorial (it really rocks!)

Congrats on finishing your exams. Happy holidays and happy knitting to all.

If you are having issues with socks and heel check out the Harlots last book, "Knitting Rules" it has a basic sock recipe. Or, "Knitting Vintage Socks" or the "Twisted Sisters Sock Workbook" are both excelent choices.

Knitty.com has a good sock formula.

Thank you both for the heads up....I didn't really need a sock formula though...my gift socks were a hit (from own pattern)....Thank you both!
