If you're willing to destash some whita acryllic to me, I'll do the cotton ball. And let me know if you need more knitters on Butterfly meadow. I might be able to do that one too.

I've only ever used wire hangers to block a lace scarf. I did have to do it in sections so it was long enough, but it worked. I love the idea of checking out a hardware store.

I was reading on Ravery that the yarn used was a heavier lace weight - more like a fingering weight. Makes me feel a little better about maybe attempting it!

This is my favorite. You use plastic bags to knit a re-usable shopping bag.

I have similar questions - I *heart* my bamboo, but I really need size 2.5 mm. I think I'll get a set with my next KP order because I don't like the gauge I get with 2.75's.

I tend to knit in fits and starts - LOL!! Sometimes I can sit and knit for a few hours, but that is pretty rare. Most of the time it's done in 15-30 minutes chunks throughout the day.

I'm jealous!! I'm planning a trip to my LYS tomorrow in hopes to get 6 skeins of a color I like. Usually they have a few skeins of a colorway, but not 6 - wish me luck!
