So if it is roving, it's something to do with spinning then? I already know I can't knit with it as is, so I'd probably try to sell it on Ebay (just so I don't waste it).

Really? :shock: It might be too late, as it's been nestling in a bag with other balls of yarn for a couple of weeks now. :pout:

There is no brand on the yarn, but I typed what it says into Google, and found a website. I think it may be pre-yarn - I don't know what this is, but it doesn't sound good. :doh:...

It didn't make it to the needles. I was pulling the yarn to get enough to start casting on, and the wool 'broke'. I tried again, in case it was just a weak bit of yarn, and it happened again. You...

No, it's not like that - it looks the same thickness as regular yarn, only coarser. I'll get a photo and post it.

CO - is that cast on or cast off? I use the two needles method, as the thumb one seemed to be too loose. The stitches didn't look too loose - there were no gaps or anything. Thanks for the hint about...

It's not acrylic, it's wool, so it should be blockable (she says, hopefully). Not sure I'm up to unraveling and re-knitting to be honest. I'm a beginner, and full of cold - steaming and pinning seems...

Splayed ends on ribbed scarf?

Yes, I thought that's what a pair of circs was, but thinking about it again, maybe that's what one circular needle 'unit' is called? So I only need one (long) circular needle then? Thanks all. :D
