I put yes. My DH and my family are all very supportive, but they don't understand. DH is reluctant to let me buy more yarn, not realizing that not buying new yarn keeps me from finding projects to...

I asked. They can't. I'm going to make a post in my blog and then go ahead and make the wrap, because it's a perfect pattern. I feel like I've done my measured best to contact her otherwise.

Great job! you look marvelous. My sister did that too, she cut over two feet off of her hair and donated it. My hair is so thin and stringy that I don't think they'd take it even if I tried to donate...

I used to knit like that, and I know a couple of people who still do. It's a design feature. I started knitting continental and stopped wrapping my purl stitches the "wrong" way. I would do whatever...

I use a safety pin, and place it between the last stitch and the first stitch of the round. I move it up as I need to.

I used embroidery floss the last time I did lace. Because the lace pattern was so complicated, I really needed it. I also used one when I was doing sockwars because if someone else needed to work on...

Thanks Ingrid. What happened to the sheep? I missed you. For the record, I'm not planning on felting it really tightly, more like a loose felt just to close up any holes and make it fit the bottle...

One thing I want to mention (and I did this in another thread too) is that you don't have to buy the whole set to try it out. Spend $15, get a cable and a set of tips, and decide from there if you...
