I'm in Cameron Park. What is your LYS? I'd like to meet other knitters but have to acknowledge a tendency to get over committed.

picking up stitches for the neck

I am never satisfied with the look I get when picking up stitches for the neck of a sweater. Usually the left side looks better than the right. This must be because the decreases that shape the...

I am really curious to hear how much your bags shrink. Mine never shrink nearly as much as the patterns suggest. And seem to felt less vertically instead of more. Why would this be?

And I am...

I did it! And it worked beautifully. Now I have the bag I had envisioned. It probably won't be as strong as it would have been - so I may sew a liner that will take some of the stress - but I...

Felted bag - can I cut it?

I just finished a felted bag - its beautiful but too deep. I made a swatch and should have realized it would not shrink as much in depth as the pattern indicated but didn't adjust - I'll learn. But...

I am pretty good about fixing mistakes when I find them (and I do!) But this time the problem was that I didn't like what I had done with the pattern and really needed to do it differently - when...

ripping out and starting over

Last night I ripped out half a poncho - I am knitting it in the round from the bottom up so half a poncho is really 2/3 of the work to finish. I should have done it a lot sooner. I had looked at it...
