Luke, I live in the super-humid midwest, and when my yarn gets sticky I find it helpful to knit in front of a fan. :D

Ideas are working...
I have adjusted the way I hold the yarn which has allowed me to knit a few more rows on my current project. The fan idea sounds pretty cool...no pun intended.

To the guys on the site... I always wondered how people could take two sticks and some string and make something, so when I saw instructions this winter on our local news web site on making a scarf, being a chef, I got a set of chopsticks and my butcher's twine from the kitchen and went to work. It took a while, but I figured it out! Now, it is proven an awesome craft that I really enjoy, and, as proven by this site, some pretty cool people do it.

Thanks again for all of your help. I look forward to reading more from the group.

Luke

OT- well Luke, hope you enjoy this new addiction, and it is one, but a constructive one. hmm can just see if they started a new support group, Knitter's Anonymous. "Hi, my name is Aaron, and I'm a knitter. I can't help it, my yarn stash keeps getting bigger and bigger!" heh, anyway, this board is full of quirky people (like KellyK, hehe Hi kelly ) But all in all, definitely a good place to be.

What about baby powder on the hands? Might look a little funny on the yarn, but if its something that will be washed anyway...

Thanks Kemp
Good idea Kemp. That helped for a while. Between washing my hands repeatedly, chaninging the way I held the yarn, and applying powder, the situation cleared up (i think the yarn just gave up at that point!) Thanks for your help.
