Ahhhhh....cheap Red Heart........now I understand. Red Heart is all I ever used for crocheting afgans. That's before I learned about all the dreamy yarns.

Ok... reading your posts leads me to ask a question (I have so many). Are you saying more expensive (better quality) yarn is easier to work with?

For me a better yarn was easier to knit with. I had a lot of trouble trying to knit with cheap Red Heart. It wouldn't slide off the needles very well. Maybe it was just me and learning to knit, but as soon as I went to a blend of acrylic and wool, it was easier.

So here's my dumb mistake. I knit a top down sweater all the way to about the pockets. The pattern calls for the bottm half to switch to a diamond pattern. The only thing is when I got to that point I had put the thing down for a few weeks. When I picked it back up I need the diamond pattern all the way to the hem. On the wrong side! I'm thinking of cutting off, turning it around and 3 needle binding off again. Anyway, felt REALLY dumb after this one. :rollseyes:

Well, I'm on my 4th knitting project and still have to begin again 5 or 6 times before I'm even starting out right.
