Knitting software

Anybody know of a decent piece of software exclusively for knitting, (such as designs and so on) if I could find it on Pocket PC that would be even better. Thx in advance.


I have Sweater Wizard and love it. There’s a demo available here. I tried several demos of other sweater-making programs, and this was by far my favorite. Lots going for it. Easy to use; gives yardage estimates; quite adaptable to make the pattern your own. What more could you ask for?

Note sure about the pocket pc part.

Well, I could ask for a lot more, but I will evaluate the software before I do :slight_smile: Other than that I did find some software from Nancy’s knit knacks that I think I’ll look into, called the E-knit kards. it’s basically a digital version of the knit kards that the website sells, and that I’ve seen in my LYS.

But you seem so knowledgeable, amy, perhaps you could direct me to finding a 10 lbs bag of 5 dollar bills? :roflhard:

With as many software engineers we have… don’t ya think we could make something for the folks in the community?

I’d be willing to lend my time… :slight_smile:

I don’t currently have the sweater wizard (but I’m hoping!). I have had the same companie’s Sock Wizard and it is awsome! I just type in the style, gauge and size I want and it prints out a single sheet pattern I can tuck into my sock bag that gives me a perfectly fitting sock every time. If the Sweater Wizard is half as good I would highly recommend it! :thumbsup:

well norman, that would be a great idea, might need to reverse engineer a couple of the knitting programs to get an idea of how they work, possibly incorporate amy’s videos, (with her permission of course). figure we could incorporate quite a few features into it as well. I’m not a software engineer, but I’ve done enough testing to last a few lifetimes.


Ohhh adding the videos was a good thought…

Reverse Engineering is the name of the game… but you have to be very carefull to make it different enough… know what I mean… I mean you want to have the concepts… but you don’t want to trample on thier Intellecutal property… but I’ve done stuff like that before :slight_smile:

seeeeeeeeeeeeee what i mean???..more blah blah blah chat…lol

heh Yeah don’t get me started… I get going


(Biting my tongue to keep from saying anything…)

Dave and Joel are starting to become a male version of me, Hildie & Beldie!

Except that you are better looking, knit better, and we wont even get into the truck and hooters thing again. (that’s a different thread).


uuuh…you obviously haven’t seen those threads…lol. I am not certain that the hooters conversation wouldn’t be appropriate…lol

what no mention of me in there? gosh, I’m hurt, Kellyk. :wink: seriously, guess somebody has to offset you three. somehow I think we’d all be in trouble if you three and joel and norman got together. :roflhard:

Well, R, uou weren’t being as snarky as the other two…you can be their straightman…how’s that?

I had nothing to do with the truck and hooters. :fingerwag: But, I’ll TAKE the “better looking”. :roflhard:

Give me some time, and I’ll be as snarky as the rest :devil:

I’m not sure if i should be offended for being called snarky… or feel complemented because I’m in such good company.
