Rivulet on Kindle!

The first test pattern from knitgrrl.com (Rivulet) went out to 5 testers + Jess from Ravelry today. A few sample screenshots…

I found that to preserve my formatting, it was best to make the title-in-funky-font an image file, otherwise it gets converted to plain text. Ok, but a little dull!

Images are nice and crisp.

Charts, the big bugaboo. Smaller charts convert beautifully, no problems. But I may well need to change the big, wide (giant!) files for Kindle purposes to suit the screensize better. This one looks good, though, eh?

    That pattern looks great on your Kindle! So far I’ve tried a total of 3 patterns – one was an RTF and 2 PDF’s – one converted wonderfully, and with the other 2 the charts were lost completely!

    It does look good! I bought one of the m-edge cases that will allow me to prop up Kindle safely–perfect for having a pattern in front of me while I knit!

    Shannon – You’re making it difficult for me to not buy one of these!

    Cool. Did you make the pattern in PDF format for use on the Kindle? I’m a little behind on the whole Kindle process. A few of my books are on their way to Kindle editions, but my publishers are taking care of all of that through Amazon, and I’m not really in the loop.
