Wow – there have already been 592 more member downloads of the Bits of Lace Oak Leaf pattern since I sent out the postcard announcement last night. I hope everyone will have lots of fun with this pattern!
A few people wrote they are having trouble downloading. It is unclear about specifics because computers and web browsers are all set up differently. The common thread seems to be that something has changed recently in IE where their security is blocking the download from completing. I am not a Systems Administrator, so do not know all the different details and possibilities that computers could have. Perhaps you have a computer expert you can ask for help. Or google for fixes you can apply to your computer or other alternatives.
Another possibility is to use a different web browser so that you can download completely. For example, Google Chrome or Firefox. If you don’t have one of these others, they are available for free download. Just do a google search for the download file that matches your operating system.
Thanks so much to those who have written in with Comments on the Bits of Lace (October) page to help those who are having trouble using their computer to download patterns. For those using IE, Beverly kindly gave step-by-step instructions about setting up your computer for automatic prompting for downloads.
In order for me to continue to offer monthly free pattern, I need to concentrate my efforts on knitting designs and instructional articles that are in support of our membership group’s objectives: Learning, sharing and taking the art of knitting to new heights.
I will continue to do my best with offering this membership site for your benefit and enjoyment. Please help me keep on track by helping yourself and each other as much as possible when it comes to computer problems or user issues that are outside of my control. Remember that there also are HELP topics for using the site that you can refer to first if you are having trouble.
