I am getting ready to start a short-row ruffled scarf which says to use the size needles required by the yarn. My yard says use 7-8 and I don't know which to use--I hate yarn that gives you a range...

I'm using size 9 on worsted weight Berrocco--I'm afraid 10's will make it look too "holey". Would you try the 10's or just go up to the next size jacket. It seems weird to be knitting a size 3 for...

Thanks for the info--the smaller one for taking places is what I'm really looking for. As a new knitter like yourself, I'm trying to get organized, but I get hung up on "cute" instead of "useful".

Isn't that the truth!!!!! It's my newly prescribed therapy, but you can see I'm struggling with the little "nothing, doesn't matter" stuff like bags instead of knitting. I'm getting there though.
