Thanks! The edging itself doesn't have a name other than the generic description picot hem, I think. You just do a picot turning row (k2tog, yo all the way across), with a couple of rows of...

As it happens, I just finished this tank top tonight. I will block it tomorrow and then post a photo. It's rather form-fitting, so I'm glad I've lost a little weight. Five more pounds and it'll look...

You can definitely use regular lengths. I used a circular needle with 5" tips. Or you can use DPNs if you prefer.

You can use larger needle sizes; just use a bit thicker yarn. I used a size 2 for that dinosaur. You could even make the projects with worsted weight yarn and maybe size 4 needles. They'd come out a...

Gus is so frisky, he doesn't really need catnip, but his "mom" has some if she wants to add it (an easy way is to put the toy and a little catnip in a ziplock bag and shake it up).

The book just has...

Thanks, everybody

Yes, he liked his new toys (my other daughter made him a tiny goldfish from the same book). Such a sweet kitty; I see more knitted toys in his future.

Your socks came out great! I'm strictly a toe-up girl. But I recently switched to the free-sole technique (but I still do them toe up), in which you make a toe band, knit the instep on to that, then...

What a cute project. I can't decide whether the motifs look like ocean waves or mushroom slices. Either way, enjoy!

Thank you. Yes, I'm a redhead, and yes I look OK in orange. It's not my best color (blues and greens are better), but I like the warm colors once in a while. I look horrible in yellow, though. My...

thrift-store sweaters

Nice to see so many fans of liberating yarn from thrift-store sweaters. Today I went to Goodwill and found 2 sweaters to unravel. #1 323g. of lambswool/angora (one of my fave blends). The color is...

The sweater was already this lovely blue. I'm hurrying to make this top to wear with a nice skirt I just bought. Hope I don't screw this up. I decided to knit it at a looser gauge. I did the math and...

Thanks. Whatever works for you. I think working two socks on 2 sets of DPNs should give you the same results as I get working both sets on one circ. There's another way of making 2 socks on one set...

You can do it! :cheering:

P.S. Some people start sock knitting with worsted weight. I have a couple of pairs like that. It's easier to see the stitches, and the socks knit up faster.
