Hi Vicki! Welcome to KH! I'm not sure where you can find the yarn you're looking for. Do you have a local Michael's, Hobby Lobby, or a Joann's near you? You might try posting this thread in GENERAL KNITTING. More members will probably see it there. Good luck with your knitting! Jeanie

You can buy Grace online at Joann's, you might be able to find it in a larger store near you.

Another yarn you might look for is Lion Microspun. It's not cotton but is about the same weight and looks similar.

Hi Everyone!
I'm not a new knitter, but I am. lol I joined this site a few years ago when I was first learning, it's such a great resource. I was active for awhile then kids, work etc. gets in the way. lol
I haven't knit very much in the last year or so, I'll start something then something goes wrong and it sits, for a year. lol lol
Anyway I picked up a project that I've been working on for about 2 years I would say. It's a Juliette sweater. The last time I worked on it was about last February I think. So I decided it's time to finish that bugger and I frogged it back to my life line and am going to continue on it tonight. But I was reading the pattern and couldn't remember a term so I thought heck I'm going to check out Knitting Help, and well here I am. I thought posting with you guys would keep me in knitting mode. lol Anyways, I'm Leslie, I'm from Illinois, I have 2 kids one boy and one girl ages 6 and 9.
So I look forward to catching up with you all, and hopefully staying motivated. Thanks.

Hi

I am a beginner and do mostly the knit stitch. Have made lots of scarves, a poncho, a wrap, but I am seeing all these beautiful patterns; one that I am interested in calls for a reverse stockinette stitch.

What does this mean?

Thanks

Hi, wecome, cc.

Stockinette st is what happens when you knit the right side rows (the side that faces out) and purl the wrong side rows. Reverse stockinette is purling the RS rows and knitting the WS rows, just the reverse.

Lion Microspun is much thicker than Patons Grace. Microspun works up to almost a worsted weight. I'm using it right now to knit some curtains for my craft room.

You can purchase Patons Grace direct from Patons on their website: http://shop.patonsyarns.com/default....tCatCode=01000

Hello everyone.... I've just joined this site, cant wait to get to know my way round it and chat to you I live in Yorkshire UK....

I am not a great knitter, but I am trying. I dont actually know anyone in 'real life' that knits, so I will be asking for help loads.

At the mo, I have spent all day looking for a hot water bottle pattern. Not much luck. I have never used; circular needles, different colours, logo's. I can cable though

Any help greatfully received.
