Did I tell you that recently I was impressed with lots of amazing examples of stylish Instagram… and must admit that I totally hooked!

I met so many beyond talented people and find daily inspiration here! But first of all, for me Instagram is kind of a story-of-my-creative-world-in-the-pictures, which I try to tell beautifully…

I am @allakovaldesigns on Instagram and you are invited!

I even have an insta portfolio: @info.allakovaldegigns ;o)

Udemy + Owleta Hat Pattern Update

ny2017_hellobar_banner_en (1)

Hi my dear friends,

I hope you enjoy a new 2017 as much as we are!! We are so excited and feel to turn this year into learning something new.

So, thank you Udemy for such AWESOME $10 per course deal – personally I ordered 12 courses so far… and still looking for more, – there are really so MUCH interesting stuff!!

If you are curious, below are some courses I got:

Learn to draw fashion with Adobe Illustrator CC Intermediate

Graphic Design Bootcamp

Social Media Marketing 2017 – Learn PPC on 10+ Platforms

…and The Complete Android N Developer Course – because to my surprise, I found that I really missed “that” stuff

A reason of this my unusual evening post is that Udemy promotion ends January, 10 on 11:59 PM PST. It’s amazing deal to get courses for only $10 if you are looking for something new to learn.

And now for the pattern update. The pattern is 90% done – all diagrams are finished as well as writing instructions. All sizes are tested too. What I still need to do: take pictures of Option 2 and detail pictures of option 1. And polish written instruction a bit. I hope to make this pattern available in the beginning of next week.

 

Yours,
Alla Koval

Knitting Charts with Stitch Maps

I can hardly express my delight with Stitch-maps! It makes me want to go back to knitting designs and patterns. Stitch-Maps.com is a website that offers a revolutionary new way of viewing knitting charts: without a grid.

StitchMap

      StitchMaps

The symbols within a stitch map clearly show what stitches to work. And – not being confined within grid squares – they also show which stitches of the previous row should be worked. The end result? Charts with unparalleled fluidity, authenticity, and beauty. Get more details on the Stitch Maps overview page.

There are currently 3567 patterns and counting. That’s an fantastic number of stitch patterns to choose from! All patterns include written instructions, some of the patterns include swatch photos, and there is a search feature that allows you to filter for exactly what you want.

Browsing and contributing to the pattern collection is free. Basic and Premium subscriptions give you additional options for highlighting rows, saving, exporting files, and other features. The Stitch Maps Ravelry group is full of Q&A’s and useful tips.

Find out Edie Eckman’s review of stitch maps for more details and aspects.
