I confess ... I'm a knotter, but I don't think I'd do it on a scarf or other flat piece. It would be quite noticeable on the ends.

I was finally able to try a set of tips and a cable from the new bamboo interchangeable set available from Webs. Nice! Probably the smoothest and highest quality bamboo I've worked with, snag-free...

I've seen Sugar & Cream on cones in Joanns but only in Ecru or White. There was also a Christmas Ombre but I'm not sure if that was Sugar & Cream or Lion Kitchen Cotton.

I don't know if I'd make an...

I guess I have to say DPNs at the moment since that's the only way I've tried so far. I've watched videos on the various techniques and using 2 circs looks like the one I'd pick if I can build up my...

My favorite dishcloth ever is one I made from double stranded size 10 crochet cotton. I crocheted it and used a very open stitch. It's not real thick like the Sugar/Peaches and Cream and that's what...

I'm jealous! I'd love to have the Addi Clicks. Maybe someday. Lately I'm also liking bamboo. Decisions decisions. Hope you feel better soon. I totally get being a meany-face when you're in pain.

Thanks you guys! I will try it tonight. I would say I need to increase the 2 sts rather than decrease. This is the first mitt so I hope I make the same mistake on the next one. Then they'll both look...

You're right when you say there's no perfect set. Btw, I don't hear all that much about the Options coming unscrewed while knitting. It's never happened to me. You just have to use the key properly...

I had a pair of the Harmonys in size US4 and I was so afraid of snapping them in half during a project. They seemed too fragile for the k2tog and it was slowing me down as I worried whether or not...

Work even just means that you don't increase or decrease. 110 sts will stay 110 sts. If you're working in the round (and I think you are), that's just doing the knit st for 15 rounds, and you'll get...

Don't feel bad about giving up on the Homespun. I've known knitters/crocheters, experienced ones, who have chucked the Homespun as well. Some of them insist that yarn is the spawn of the devil!...

I don't think you were wrong! Unless they're paying you to sit at the meetings, I think it's fine to knit during them. However, looking at it from a non-knitter's point of view, they may be seeing it...

Can you do the double crochet stitch? Or maybe one row single, one row double? With that size hook, a taller stitch (as in double crochet) might be easier to see. (I'd probably use a larger hook if I...
