Before cold weather comes again, please finish your Starsky. I wore the heck out of mine this past winter. Living in Louisiana, I could use it for almost any weather. I was surprised at how the...

I don't think it will really make a difference whether or not you twist them (by knitting thru the back loops) because I forgot to do that on mine and after felting it looks fine.

A booga bag will teach you picking up stitches and i-cord. Also felting! It is a good first project after scarves or flat work. You can google the pattern, it's a freebie.

I've heard that it softens with washing. I'm using Reynolds Soft Linen which is just a blend, but it really is soft. I haven't used pure linen before.

Seriously, why do they show stuff that NO one would ever buy? It seems like a waste of time and effort.

I love the Options since they are not only smooth but very pointy. Great for splitty yarn or lace patterns. I will use them instead of bamboo when the size is right. The Brittany birch ones kept...

By the time it's well, you should have at least 3 pairs of socks that fit both feet. Or you could make a cast cozy? Hope it doesn't hurt too much!

I think you're on the right track. If the second one fits, frog the first. I made one pair of socks that was too big and I never wear them. So you might as well make 3 socks and wear them!

Hey, do you want to come over to my house today?

I will be sure to look at Vogue next time I go to B&N, but sometimes I have to wonder about some of those vogue covers.
