I've found Malabrigo for ~$9 - 10 (though I know that some places it runs to $12 - $13) and shipping usually runs ~$4 wherever I've ordered. So that would make it a $10 - $12 pattern... I think you...

I'm 28. My b-day is mid-August, so I've still got awhile before there's another ring around my tree, but I'm looking forward to my 30s. ^_^

I think it's fabulous that there are so many 60+ knitters...

I agree. There's nothing wrong with phoning in to check that it made it. For one thing, if it HASN'T made it, that's something you need to be made aware of so that you can have at the PO.

They seemed thin and poorly written to me. I didn't care much for them. I know, I know. Heresy, I'm sure. I don't know - I just expect a lot more from a book.

I was actually being silly. I've seen others jump on people for using "plastic" instead of "resin" for Denises. I was being goofy. No undergarment bunching over here. ^_^

Yes, but "plastic" as a generic term typically implies a different substance than the extruded material that composes most resins. ^_~

If you're like me, you may have tried to cast on the required number over all three needles - 12 here, 14 there and 12 again or whatever. It's easiest (for me) to cast on the total amount of...

I love my Denise needles and my Options. I did just have my 16" (I think?) cord break in my Denise set. *sigh* Apparently there was an airbubble in the plastic that makes the join and it snapped...

For me, it depends on the yarn. Schaeffer Anne sock yarn, for instance, is gorgeous - but also very fine compared to other sock yarns I work with more often (Opal, Regia, KPPM, etc). So I've had to...

The site lacks a LOT of information, in my opinion. Doesn't say where they're based (that I can see) and it doesn't use verisign or anything like that... I dunno. Caveat emptor?
