In most cases I think that's pretty normal and after a few rows it just works itself in. That's what happens to me. If it stays loose perhaps you are pulling it a little too much and stretching the...

Well slower in that you have to switch the yarn back and forth. I'm sure there are others that knit that way. :hug:

Cotton classic is my go to yarn for dish cloths. The color doesn't fade like regular dish cloth cotton. Also doesn't seem to stain as badly.

My gauge is different between styles, but if you're happy with your results then no reason not to do it. :thumbsup: It will be slower of course, but knitting isn't a race.:teehee:

Yesterday I was knitting while playing catch up with Downton Abbey and Greys Anatomy. I often just watch reruns of some sitcom like Big Bang Theory or Friends. I hate talk shows.

That Wheaton is very pretty!

It does seem like most will be using it as a scarf. The sample looks more like a scarf and because its knit with fingering weight it's not bulk. I like the idea of...

That's what I was afraid of. My yarn is silk and merino and drapes nicely. I'm onto the second set of striping now (6 rows between). Sorry yours didn't work out!

Tonite is our group so I'll have to...

I laid mine out and it seems like it'll be at least 15" wide when blocked. Well see.

Thanks, Mary Anne!

My yarn, Sweet Georgia, is silk and merino. I would give your yarn a try, but unless you are an extremely loose knitter I think the 7 won't give it enough drape. It depends on your taste though. I...

That's pretty yarn. The yarn needs to be something that drapes well. What fiber is it? (The page closed) If you think it would pool you might want to alternate. And yes, i think this pattern would...

Interesting, I didn't know that. I doubt very much that with 5 mil lion members anyone would really see what I'm working on unless I pointed it out, but good to know.

The yarn is really more like the balls. I took the wip at night and the color didn't come out. It will be a bit more contrast than I would normally like, but I liked the colors. You will have an...

It looks similar to the stuff I bought specifically to use for lifelines. Hmm maybe it could be used for buttons or for detail work like on a toy? That's an awful lot though.

I would think you'd start at the beginning of the panel section and continue to work the 24 rows, but I'm not sure.

The best thing to do is take it section by section as you're knitting. It will make more sense than just taking the last section out of context. So start knitting and ask for help as you need it.

No, not normally. It's not easy to do and there's no point in most cases. Why are you asking? Is your yarn smelly or something?
