Written May 2011, way too late for Meg's camp. That opens in Feb and fills up right away.

I found out Photoshop is still hard but it may be worth the price. Illustrator seems to be the program most designers use. I will be looking into that one as well. Sometimes the old saying is true, you get what you pay for. I'm not putting the Intertwined program down, just that it has limits on what it can do. If all I wanted was to put out a chart, it would be great. However, I want to do more and it isn't designed to do full patterns. I would have to cobble the chart into another document and hope it comes out readable. I can do that but if another program can do it all, why wouldn't I so that. It's all boils down to how serious am I about designing and publishing patterns. There is interest out there so it just may be worth the money.
That was some ideas I was wresting with at that time. I have since gotten a few books on pattern design and taken a class on pattern grading from Ysolda Teague while at VK Live NY a week ago. I think I have a better idea on what to do and may be able to get some of these designs out of my brain.
