If you are a DAK user, no doubt you have heard that there is an update available. Reading the description, I was not so sure about it. But I admit, I haven't seen all the possibilities. I'll upgrade anyway. It isn't so expensive, as software goes, to upgrade from 8 to 9. I have this feeling we should support the businesses that are involved with machine knitting or they will disappear. One nice thing in the upgrade is that the lace module is included. That should be fun to work with. I opted not to purchase it last time. If anyone already has it, I'd love to hear what you think.
