If you hand-knit i-cord, it almost always shows a "seam" of loose stitches down the back. That's easy to pick up--really, all you need to do is run a circular needle through the cord and knit the...

That was hard to understand, so don't feel silly!

You have knitted the body of the skirt. Those 14 stitches are going to become the ruffle that goes sideways around the bottom. You cast on 14, then...

May I add that when you get stuck or make a mistake, we're all here. If there's a knitting mistake that can be made, I think I've made it, so nothing's going to shock, surprise or stump us :)

It works, honest. I haven't made these socks, but have used a similar pattern many times. The slipped stitches are what give the thick, cushy texture to the whole thing. You can do a similar pattern...

Yes, it's for afghan/Tunisian stitch. Unless you're using that particular technique, you don't need one even if you're making an afghan.

70 is the same size as a lot of sewing thread and was used for very fine lace. It's cotton, so not a good thing for reinforcing sock heels and toes.

You could take a good look at one ball of it and...

If the pattern is what I'm thinking it's like, you'll either have a bunch of ladders or big eyelets through it. That's what the dropped yarn overs will make. Yes, a circular will make that a LOT...

Circular needles are really handy for big projects. When you make an afghan or a long sweater, you can lay most of the work in your lap and take the weight off your arms and hands. Everybody has a...

Odd that the bottom is knit in pieces. I'd think it would be easier to knit in the round all the way and the self-striping yarn wouldn't have those wide bands on the bottom (and hard to match, at...

Would a provisional cast-on help? Cast on with waste yarn, unpick when you're done and finish as you need to?

Sometimes when you block or wash the piece a lot of things will even out. I'd rather have a slightly loose cast-off than one that is too tight.

Yep, totally normal. If you get hold of the sides of the "seam" once it's done and pull gently in opposite directions, you'll see what I mean about blocking. It really doesn't matter much, though.
