Printing PDF Downloads and an Apology

Sorry.

A kind visitor to Knitting-and.com let me know recently that I had accidentally created many of my pdf files without letting anyone print them without a password.

My sincere apologies to everyone this has affected (I’m mortified that I made such a simple mistake).

I have fixed them now, so if you find yourself with a file from Knitting-and.com that you would like to print, and it’s asking for a password, please download it again and you should be able to print it. (If you can’t, let me know and I’ll double check). Note: This will only affect files downloaded after October 6th, 2018.

Regular visitors may have also noticed that the website has been offline a few times over the past week. This was caused by a failure on the new server, which I have been assured is now fixed. I hope this hasn’t caused too much inconvenience.

Maintenance Update & a Ravelry Plea

I’m pretty sure I’ve fixed all of the missing patterns from the wiki. They were all there, just with the wrong file names/links.

Also, I’ve noticed that a lot of visitors are posting to Ravelry when they find an error in my transcriptions. If you could also let me know here on the website I’d really appreciate it. I fix any errors that I find out about. Unfortunately, because I’m not the designer of the vintage patterns I post, I don’t get an automatic notification on Ravelry of people’s comments and it takes a REALLY long time to check over 1000 patterns. Especially when a lot of them don’t have Knitting-and.com as the source other than in the link to the transcribed/updated versions.

Thanks, and please let me know if you find any more missing patterns!

Knitting-and.com terminally outgrew it’s server over the last couple of weeks so I’ve moved it to a different one with more of everything that makes it go 🙂

I’ve noticed everything is loading much faster for me, I hope it is for you too.  If you encounter any errors, please let me know. I, or one of my work colleagues, will get right on it.
