Re: VETERANS DAY! KAL 11/11-11/17 Knit to a goal!

Too much sewing has made me slow today. I have 3 pp pad shells pieced, just need the FOE edging for them.

Good morning all!

Super cute hat Erica! Or it could just be the super cute model...

I'm afraid to look at Fi's Spots listings- DH's Christmas bonus got cut and we usually use it for presents, so we are being tight for the next few weeks. I'm kicking myself for ordering KP Wed night since that free yarn code came out last night... Oh well.

AFM- I've frogged Ma Kettle's scarf 3 times now not liking the pattern or how it was knitting up. I think I have a winner now though.

What's a better base for 0-3m stage.
Remember I live in hot humid Alabama:

Bbr
Mmw
Gaia worsted-I've heard it pills badly
Gaia Aran-seems like it would be too hot
LT- can I use lt as a diapering base since it has the sw single in it?

Re: VETERANS DAY! KAL 11/11-11/17 Knit to a goal!

Morning, Turkey got in before 7. Getting ready for dentist and then back to hopefully finish up turkey stuff and get it to school on time.

Cute stuff Mel, looks like Erica is doing it for ya?

Karen, the needles are 6.99, can use a 40 off coupon and then have to ship so it is probably a bit cheaper. What if you odn't get gauge w/them and need different ones though? My JA's has the smaller sizes but no 15, cuz that is what i needed . And the 17's are long, 29" I believe. They do have some bamboo clover'in 16". I'd be happy to get whatever you need and send them.

single ply is nice and soft for newbies and tehy don't move around too much so the wearing is not as bad I would guess anyway. I didn't diaper a newbie.

bbr and mmw too scratchy for a newbie IMO. IDK about reg gaia for softness but GB is soft but yes, makes a thick fabric. Probably depend on the time of year you needed it for. LT knits a thin fabric but not the softest, yes you can use it for diapering

Gaia worsted may be best of the list above? I havent' knit that though to compare it to LT.

What are you making w/it?
