I'm a 100% wool kind of gal, myself. That's especially for garments. Even itchy wool is more comfortable than any other fiber. I don't like plant or man made fibers because they hurt my hands to...

I want to make socks and a pair of handwarmers I had an idea for. I'd also like to make a sweater, but I doubt that will happen this year.

lol, I don't have a problem with their response. I made the scarves because I wanted to make the scarves. I gave them to my sisters because I wanted to do that, too. I just hated making them and...

I'm using it to make scarves for my sisters this Christmas. I love the yarn, mostly. It's wonderfully soft and airy. I do have an issue with one of the colorways I bought. The way it was packaged...

That happened to me big time with a skein of Malabrigo. In the hank, it looked like pink and yellows, with pink being dominant. Instead, the yellow is dominant, the pink looks orange and the orange...

I used it for the pecan pie beret and Elann.com's Garden Paths shawl. It worked nicely for both. I won't probably use it again unless my stash runs out or I'm making a blanket. I prefer knitting...

I waited until too late to start scarves for my sisters. See, I didn't pay attention to what kinds of knitting I like doing. Socks, gloves and hats on size 3 needles are vastly more fun than...

I'd use a tubular cast on. This removes the visibility of the cast on edge by folding it. It's very stretchy. I think it pulls in a little, but it looks clean. This is my favorite edge ever. It...
