A is for APPS (knitting apps that is)

For all you knitters that have smart phones there's apps for you:

1. Vogue Knitting. My absolute favorite is the "vogue Knitting App". This app is like having the the Vogue Knitting Book in a yarn store or at a "stitch and bitch" with you. ALL the stitches are there, how to do them, with pictures. All yarn types are there and much, much more. There is one for Droid also.

The rest of these I'm learning about with you so let me know which you like or dislike:

2. Knitting Daily: This looks really intriguing and I'm going to download it, "knitting daily". It seems like a very informational app updated regularly. Let's give it a shot.

3. Knit Minder
These apps are done by Quilt2Go. The knit minder lite is free and the other costs something. What do they do? Well for me this would be invaluable since all my projects go on hold constantly. They keep a record of your ongoing projects. YAY. Sounds good to me.

4. Stitch Minder: This is a baby brother to the knitminder group and it is a stitch counting application. Wait while I download this. This is also seen at Quilt2Go.

5. Ilocator for Wool and Yarn: For this you must go to the App Store. Wherever you are, you can use this app and it will find the local yarn store for you. Traveling gets better and better. Once again something that sounds pretty useful. It does cost $1.99 though.

Only 5 today as I continue this research. If anyone has any to add please do in comments are write to me at pbquig@yahoo.com and I will post them. Thanks for reading.
