It's ok, I just got a wheel for my bday a week ago and can't figure out how to get the yarn to draw onto the bobbin...I have a class on Saturday, so I guess I'll figure it out then, but I just wondered if anyone knew a hint.

Re: KAL Oct 7-13 *Knit the funk away!*

Morning
I still haven't picked up the front bib for the overalls. I'm still mad at them . I am working on cleaning/organizing/de-cluttering my house.

I kind of just scrolled through, nice to see some more familiar faces! The sweater was super cute, and the toilet stool was genius!

Re: KAL Oct 7-13 *Knit the funk away!*

Im going to look at it in a few..... Technical/pattern question: When a pattern tells you to knit a certain amount of inches down (this is a hat and it says knit 5 inches) is that stretched or not stretched? This is cotton yarn so not much give but if I stretch it a bit it gives me an extra 1/4-1/2 inch.

Are you using scotch tension? You probably need to turn up your tension a tiny bit at a time until it's pulling enough.

That's how our downstairs bathroom is, we're lucky we have a shower!

It should be non-stretched, unless it specifically says "after blocking". And for rompers, the gift-wrap romper I think is cute and GN, and the hat pattern is darling that she pairs with it.

Re: KAL Oct 7-13 *Knit the funk away!*

Today is our 8th anniversary, trying to decide where to go for dinner. The kids were up early and being monsters so I'm hoping there's a nap in there soon. I have more fiber prepped to dye during nap, then there is just 8 oz. left of this order!
