Yeah it was only out for a couple of hours. I snuggled up on my futon and watched Road to El Dorado.

So, Kitten is now doing a stealth routine of climbing down to the floor of her cage, then sneaking over to the front edge and looking to see if I'm watching her, and when I'm not watching, she goes and gets some food.
If she catches me watching her, she scrambles back to the back of her cage and pretends that she's ignoring me. It's really hilarious.
Actually, I think what she's saying is "Yeah, Hi mom! I don't have any millet left and the pellets are icky."

I just finished a beret for a cousin, hopefully she will not notice the unintended design feature. I need to finish off the second sock for her sister, and then work on finishing DSWMBO shawl. So I am starting to plan my next effort. I am going to do something for me, a pair of basic kilt hose or possibly and adaptation of the Midsummer night's dream to kilt hose.

However, instead of the standard kilt hose fold over I want to do a Hose collar. This is a separate item that fits at the top of the hose to cover the top ribbing. Because it is separate you can use the base hose for different occasions, a fancy collar for a fancy occasion and a "plain" collar for general wear.

Now to the question. Many of the patterns I like would be easier to knit flat and joined into the collar. I understand the provisional cast-on but I am not sure how you would join the two ends so the join would not show. Would Kirchner Stitch, three needle bind off work? What is the best join in your opinion.

Thanks to all!
Chris I'd personally kitchner stitch it, seems to me that a 3 needle bind off leaves a bit of a ridge, where as kitchner is less noticable.

Thanks for the prayers for Grandma, Mom (RN) thinks she is having ongoing bouts of colitis (sp), they did an ultrasound today and we'll get the results on Thurs.

Gina the bathroom is looking great!

I have a quiz in ap2 on Thurs morning so if you all feel like throwing a few prayers this way that'd be great. I'm studying lots, but still feel I need to know more.

It was knit in one piece, and now it is part of a boring scarf! LOL It is almost finished (the scarf) now. Just about six more inches should do it. It did hurt to frog it, but it was my own fault for putting down and failing to pick it back up until the kid had outgrown it.

Hurrah for the bath coming along! It is looking pretty. It sounds like you did a good number on the jets. Do you have hard water that makes them get yucky? Or is it just soap scum/don't want to know kind of yucky? (smile)

Birds are (in my experience) SO good at the poor starving me game when they've eaten their favorite yummies from the food dish. I'm thinking you have probably called her correctly on this one!

Too funny!

I know I wouldn't use the three needle, because it is very obvious, the kitchener stitch might work, but doesn't the provisional cast-on method have a specific joining that goes with it?

Hmmm, ArtLady has used it in a hat that she made, I wonder if you would feel comfortable asking her what method she used?

Chris, I'm having trouble wrapping my mind around what you want to do. Sorry. I'm not much help!

Emily, Kittenbird sounds hilarious!

Julie, You'll do great. Remember that the first test from any teacher is always challenging b/c you don't know what to expect. Study extra for it! Hopefully, this one will be really easy! Study well and I'll be praying for you!

Knit2B, the jets are disgusting from the previous owner. probably NEVER cleaned!

No workers here today! DD and I ran errands. It was SO GOOD to get out! I found a really pretty hamper with a cushioned top at Ross and a beautiful rug for the dining room at Marshall's (less than half the price of what I saw anywhere else and good quality!). Gotta love discount stores. They vary so much from store to store, but we found good stuff today.

Interview went well, I got the job, but I don't know if I will make any money there. I am going to take it and keep going out and looking.

Sounds like a cute kitty.

From another directions - Knit a flat scarf, then how would you invisibly join the two end to make a tube?

Sides or ends? A really skinny tube or a big wheel?
