Stuck In The 80's

I love the 80's...Especially the 80's Cartoons, tv shows, Movies etc...When ever I come upon something from the 80's I gotta have it...lol I have uploaded pictures of things I have collected over the years so far...I hope to collect more...None of my items are for sale...I am just posting them for your viewing pleasure...Enjoy

I have loved knitting ever since I was a little girl.I use to make dolls cloths for my dolls just out of the top of my head...I love making socks,slippers, mittens, dishcloths etc...I love drawing & cartoons & making patterns out of them...
My Grand Mother Burhoe & My Great Aunt Marjorie McCoubrey taught me how to knit when I was a little girl...When I use to go to my Aunt Marjorie's house I would stay over night she live in the high rise across from market square & we would knit & look out her window & watch the boats...Some times we would go out on the board walk...Then we had our walks to Market Square, we would go in all the little shops & look at all the ornaments & novelties...Some times we would buy something & get a piece of fudge at the fudge stand in the center of market square... When I would go to my Gram's house I would also knit when i was there...Gram was always knitting socks, mittens & she made me a blanket witch I still have...lol It has come apart several times & she would always fix it for me...I still use it to snuggle & the kids are not allowed to use my blanket because it is so warm & cozy...lol I actually made my daughter her own blanket & I will have to make 3 more for all them to have one...

Awesome Free Program-Convert a picture into a knitting pattern.

Tried it & I love it...It takes the picture & write the pattern in word format Rows...Totally awesome...Try it...

kpg http://sourceforge.net/projects/kpg/ is a free program that can create knitting patterns out of pictures. It can either create straight patterns or illusion patterns that only reveal the picture when viewed at an angle.

The knitting patterns are simple rectangles (squares) that use simple stiches, a regular "knit stitch" and optionally a "perl stitch". The patterns can be used to create large blankets or many smaller patch-work squares suitable for making a large knitted piece. Experienced knitters are able to take the simple square knitting patterns and integrate them into more complex pieces such as jumpers/sweaters.

kpg can take any kind of bitmap image and create a knitting pattern. It is recommended that low colour images/pictures be used to ensure the knitting process is as simple as possible. It is possible to use a black and white picture and create a pattern using only one colour and using different stitches for the picture. Examples below.

kpg http://sourceforge.net/projects/kpg/ is the only free open source tool I know of to create knitting patterns. Essentially a png2knitting_pattern converter. In theory the patterns kpg generates could be used for crochet (with minor modification).

Features

Road map ideas include run as cgi and generating intarsia knitting charts (see http://www.sweaterscapes.com/intars.htm and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intarsia_%28knitting%29).


I downloaded version 6
