Along with using graphic files to create patterns, this program also allows users to create knit vests, pullovers, cardigans, jackets, and more using the measurement information for 35 standard sizes, which range from newborn to adult. Parents can even design and create their children's clothes by just loading the measurement information into the program. Instant Stitch also contains a valuable listing of 80 companies with their yarn types, reducing the time spent searching for perfect material, and it allows users to create an inventory catalog for needles, notions, yarns, and more.
The inventory is exactly the program I have been looking for and, I hope, will finally allow me to catalog my stash. My one complaint is that since the software was written, many many new yarns have appeared (and others have disappeared) So I find myself calling some yarns by the wrong names, just to get them in the inventory -- alas, the upgrade from the manufacturer costs another $20!
My final word? The two relevant knitting CDs seem to be an excellent value. I have no idea why the other programs are included. Does anyone want my cross stitch program?
I didn't attempt to use their "organization" CD as I found everything else so very useless. BEWARE OF BUYING 4 HIGHLY SPECIALIZED crafts consolidated into one oversized box containing only 4 CDs. (...)
