Welcome Melissa! Great to have you on board!

JAK, I've only heard of the hot-water (even boiling water) method. You could try posting the Q in its own thread to get more feedback. Good luck!

Amy

yay! I know the answer to this one! try boiling water , give them a good tug to straighten, and then instead of balling them up in your knitting bag, either make or buy a hanging circ needle holder. That will keep them straight and un-kinky while you're not using them. There's a pattern in Stitch and Bitch for a holder, and [http://www.knitpicks.com/lobby.asp?WCI=Item_Display&itemid=80028]here's a link[/http://www.knitpicks.com/lobby.asp?WCI=Item_Display&itemid=80028] if you just want to buy one... or just check it out and make your own. I didn't follow a pattern when I made mine, and it was still easy, you just need minimal sewing skills (ie. you can cut fabric and and sew a striaght line... you mnight not even need a sewing machine, you could use that fusible webbing stuff)
Gee I hope I put that link in right!

Can you play Ann's CD in the DVD player at home? :?
I hope it's not a dumb question - just want to know. I assume so, but if I'm wrong... :?

Welcome LauraT!

Lots of folks ask that. Sorry, you can't play the CD in the TV's DVD player. I'm working on a DVD though. Not sure when it will be out; stuff keeps coming up and pushing that project back! Hopefully by the Spring!!!
