So, I found a super sale on a bunch of Lamb's Pride Bulky at my LYS the other day. When I got home I realized I only knew of one good thing to make with it.

Anyone have any good patterns that call...

No, I don't have a swatch to unravel, unfortunately, but it is a pretty bulky yarn, so I may try pulling out the plies. That's pretty genious actually.

Otherwise, I did find a yarn that is about...

Thanks!

I was hoping someone would say something like that. The yarn is kind of lime green, so I hope I can find something close to it.

You would reccommend ONLY using yarn, right? My friend said...

I've started the clutch, and it seems OK, but I've had to pull the yarn so that the cord for the circs is kind of warped. I only need to...

Not a double knit.

Maybe I'll just try and work with it and see how it goes. Perhaps once I start the actual stitches it will get larger and easier to work with.

On my other project I did in the...

The pattern calls for Lamb's Pride Bulky (which I am using, in kiwi) and the exact needles I am using.

Am I allowed to ask what a DH is or should I already know?

If I should already know, it's just a momentary lapse. I really do know what it is. Promise.

Very cool!

Be cautious that Hot Topic doesn't get ahold of it and turn it into a mass produced disaster.

Hope your 12 year old rocker wears it proudly. :)

I love the flower and the polka dot handles are a nice contrast.

Very cool! I've been knitting for 4 months and I am still not brave enough to try two colors!

I just did cables about 2 weeks ago and still haven't recovered from that triumph!

Tangled mess

So, I bought a "hank" of yarn the other day. The lady at the yarn shop asked if I wanted it wound into a ball on her machine. I was like, "Nah, it's cool. I can handle it." Duh. Stupid. Why do yarns...

More felting questions...

Since my felting venture in a commercial washing machine at the laundromat down the street looks bleak, does anyone know anything about those 'felting tools?'

They seem to go to be true. Are they?

I may just wait until I go home during Christmas to felt it. I would hate to mess it up if the washing machine gets out of control.

I am a fairly new knitter. I began with a scarf in garter stitch, with a super bulky yarn and size 13 needles.

Now, I can't seem to get off aluminum needles. I have tried bamboo as well as...
