Instant Stitch is a four-CD-ROM set designed to help knitters, crocheters, and stitchers create patterns for stitching, sweaters, and children's clothes. Users can take their own photos (with a scanner), digital camera images, or any graphic file and turn them into stitch patterns instantly. With an easy-to-use interface and step-by-step procedures, this program makes crafting fun and accessible.
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.

Even with these problems, this product is worth the [$$$]...lots of info in it.
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. (...)
The PM Stitch Creator CD is actually for cross-stitching. You can upload a jpg file or whatever, and then you've got to choose a bunch of cross-stitching information to get it to graph. I've not played with it enough to see if I can figure out how to get it to work for knitting but I plan on it.
Not useful to me for crocheting, as those stitches are formed differently than cross stitch or knit stitches are, but maybe could be used for mesh crochet/filet crochet? Or, I could use the knitting motifs for duplicate stitch on an already completed knitted sweater.
The cross stitch function appears to work well, but I only used it for making a small Toy Story xmas ornament for my son; nothing too elaborate and certainly nothing like the photo on the box/packaging.
This is probably very out of date now; I purchased mine originally from Amazon in 2006 or 7 and have not used it since.
