Knit Handy and Crochet Handy

The wizards at Interweave Press have just converted The Knitter’s Handy Guide to Yarn Requirements and The Crocheter’s Handy Guide to Yarn Requirements into handy iPhone apps.

Called Knit Handy and Crochet Handy, respectively, these apps will let you determine how much yarn you’ll need for basic garments and accessories knitted (or crocheted) at a variety of gauges for a wide range of sizes. Crochet Handy also has conversions single, half-double, double, and treble crochet stitches. All of this is available at the iTunes store for just $0.99 each.

    Another “PLEEZ” for Android version. Downloaded to my Macintosh, but the SmartPhone version would be so much better!!

  2. Making another request for an Android version of the KnitHandy app.

    Apple’s iOS only command 29% of the mobile smart phone market. Google’s Android operating system commands
    47% of the market.

    There are more knitters using an Android powered device than an Apple powered device.

    I love your books and would really love to have the KnitHandy app on my phone.

    Please don’t discriminate against folks who chose not to buy the Apple device.

  3. Another vote for an Android version. I use the iPad version and it’s great, but I don’t usually take my iPad shopping and I don’t have an iPhone.

  4. Yes. Sadly, Interweave Press (who holds the rights to all of my apps) has chosen not to update them to the latest IOS system. Without warning, nothing works if you update your system (and why wouldn’t you?). They are aware of my displeasure.
