That's odd... I'll check on that.

I just fixed the link. Both of them were not working!
Thanks for letting me know, DCM.

I just tried the link it worked for me. Did you already change it? The CD looks fabulous.
Chilly house? I think I'd have to call my apt. down right cold! I need to get busy knitting slippers. I have some fat polyester rug yarn from a thrift store, really old stuff. Maybe I can use it for those slippers.

Yep, already fixed those links. I'm a speed demon.

Rug yarn will not be thick enough for these slippers. The gauge is ridiculous! One stitch of the yarn I used made almost TWO INCHES! It's that incredibly thick Red Heart Boutique Doodle yarn. The yarn is over an inch thick, but also lightweight. It's like the puff ball yarn without any string....just puffs all the way through. Really one of a kind.

Here's a photo of the yarn. The skein is over a foot long. There are only 12 yards of yarn in each skein.

And, taking a look at the "Pick a Stitch" CD via the newly repaired link, I'm adding it to my "If you're going to wish at all, might as well wish big" list...maybe a book with the word "Sheep" on the cover *or* a copy of this wonderful-looking CD!

Thanx for this fantastic site to get help. This is my 1st time . I belong to a knitting club at my local library, and I am getting better at following the written directions of patterns. I was taught many, many years ago by my Mom, who was left- handed. I am right handed. All I knew was knit and purl...now I am making baby booties, hats, neck warmers, and of course scarfs...etc

Please submit my name to win the KnittinHelp App.


Happy New Year everyone !!
