LoveKnitting App for iPhone!
After discovering the LoveKnitting app for iPad, Merion is now thrilled that she can use it on her iPhone too!
It’s been a very exciting couple of weeks here at LK HQ, with the launch of our fabulous LoveKnitting App for iPhone! I fell in love with it completely when it launched on iPad, (you can read all about that here!) and now I’m euphoric to discover that it’s even EASIER to knit on the go!
This morning, I was merrily knitting some gloves on the train, and forgot where the thumb increases started… this might normally pose a problem on a crowded train, rifling through bags for a piece of paper but not today. I glanced at my phone, tapped into the LK app, and my pattern appeared right at the moment I had left it last night! This magical convenience was so thrilling that I almost told the very grumpy woman next to me who was furiously tapping angry texts, and sighing at the train delay – no such misery for me, as I snuggled back down in my seat to knit on.
There’s something very exciting about being able to access my patterns wherever I am. Non-knitters and crocheters might not understand this but for our tribe, access is everything – this is why I love LoveCrafts (and nobody paid me to say this, gentle reader) – they understand that we knitters need our yarn as FAST as possible, and we need to access our patterns wherever we are on the earth.
So, what else does this fabulous little app have? When you’re travelling, it’s great to have the row and line counters running, so that you know where you are if you have to stop and start – and, it’s great to be able to enlarge charts, especially for lace, if your memory is as foggy as mine.
One of the things I love, is that enables you to both plan your knitting and knit spontaneously. You can either make sure you download a pattern in advance for a long journey, and make sure you have everything you need to cosy down and knit – or, you can throw some yarn and suitable needles into a bag, leap into the passenger seat of a car/coach/train/boat/plane, and peruse our giant selection of patterns in the weight of yarn that you’ve grabbed, download a pattern, and get started right there and then!
I know many of you are patiently waiting for a launch of the LK app for android – and I’m delighted to tell you that our brilliant tech team is working hard on that – but for now, if you’ve got an iPhone, you can get yourself to the App Store and give it a whirl!
The free, exclusive patterns are divine – and every month, there are new patterns to devour, and I am so in love with some of the frosty winter designs coming up!
Please be absolutely assured, that if I can do it – you can do it! I’ve loved the immediacy and accessibility of working my patterns on the go, and being able to access so much more than just a crumpled piece of paper in a project bag!
