A knitter’s and crocheter’s iPad app

2 Comments

Have you heard about the new Knitting & Crocheting app for the iPad?

I learned about it from Vickie Howell’s post on Twitter earlier this week. (You can visit her blog here.)

The press release says the app features include content with pics, instructions with photos and illustrations, tips and tricks and several projects.

I wonder how useful the app really is. Press releases are good about giving glowing descriptions of products, but once you cut through all the crap, what’s really there? There doesn’t seem to be much based on the description, so I wonder what the app’s really like.

I don’t have an iPad, but would like to have one. I’m interested in any reviews from people who’ve tried the app out. Is that you? Let me know what you think.
Are there any row counters to help you keep track of where you’re at in a project? Can you upload or download projects to the app? Abbreviation guides included? A social feature where you can connect with other knitters and crocheters?
I can’t wait to find or hear of some reviews.

  1. I am learning to crochet. do you know of any good teach-yourself sites? I dont have an ipad, but I wonder if the app is available for an iphone?

  2. @ChelseySome sites that would be good to check out would be Ravelry.com and CrochetMe.com.

    I'd also check out Debbie Stoller's “Stitch 'N Bitch” books about knitting and crocheting. They're a wealth of information.

    Good luck!
