Friday Contest

 I was not able to log into Blogger last week, so I was not able to post.  But everything seems to be working now, so let's have a contest!

I will give one person their choice of any pdf pattern on my site, bellacrochet.com. I will select the winner at random, and send out the pattern on Monday morning (I will be out of town this weekend, so the contest will run a little longer than usual.) I will post the name of the winner here, so be sure to check back on Monday morning to see if you won. 
Also, if you post anonymously, please be sure I have a way to identify you (at least give your first name or a nick name in your comment; I have no way of knowing who is posting.)
To enter, just leave a comment answering this question:
Are you crocheting any gifts for Christmas this year, and if so, what are they?
This contest is now closed. Please come back next Friday to enter my weekly contest.

Thanks to everyone for sharing your wonderful tips! I can't wait to try some of them. No matter how long you have been crocheting, you can always learn something new!

Downloading PDF Patterns to an IPad or other Mobile Device

I have received several emails lately from customers asking if it is possible to download my patterns to their IPad.
Since I am technologically-challenged, I turned to my computer expert, Joanne, who built and maintains my website for me.
She gave me the following information, which has been added to the information on ordering on BellaCrochet.com.


Download to mobile device

1. Install an app like Download Everything (D/L Everythn) for iPod. It needs to say that it can unzip files like PDFs.
2. Purchase a pattern from BellaCrochet.com per instructions (test with a Free Pattern).
3. On the page with the link to the download, click download.
4. Click on "Open in D/L Everythn" (top right) or the "Open in..." (top left) and select desired app.
5. In D/L Everythn Download window. Double click the zipped file and choose Extract.
6. Select the PDF and email to yourself as a back up.
7. Select the PDF and Open in iBooks (or other desired program.

This information should work for any PDF, not just my patterns. I hope it will help those of you with IPads and other mobile devices.

Thanks to everyone who entered!
