I'm not surprised that Cometosilver was here in the past -- her instructions are so clear and well written.

Some family members LOVE the wii -- they have the skiing and yoga programs, among others, I think. My sister in law loves it.

For those who have already passed midnight...HAPPY NEW YEAR
Yup totally normal. Its the nature of the beast.

Yeah....stockinette does that. Some people will knit TWO scarves, then seam them together back to back, to keep the edges from curling.

I know! I'm amazed by all the information we have available now online for FREE!

Nice to know! We are just loving it.

I'm getting ready to frog my slippers! I"m using a Yarn Bee wool blend and about halfway finished, but I think the yarn is too thin. Going to frog and then start again with 2 strands.

It's getting harder and harder for me to stay awake. I'm thinking I need to break into the chocolate chips!
