Re: Knitters~Hookers~Spinners~Dyers WIP 12/07

Bummer I hate it when things just pool perpetually. At least your customer is fine with it. I find mostly that hand-painted yarns hate 80st at the hip. It seems to be death, especially for mosaic moon yarns.

Go ahead with any PLing Qs you got. If you want to PM me or email me too, feel free.

I definitely still knit for sale. I just don't have any customers! Cabling is so much fun. I have many-a-plan to knit cabled longies for my next boy!
I'll PM you, and I know I'll be bugging you for another pair for the new bean!

So what do you all use?
Not sure what weight yarn you're using?

OMG and semi/solids. No worries about pooling. And usually it's fine when you knit flat, too.

Thank you SO much! It's just a pattern - i wish I was creative enough to just wing it myself, but tbh, I suck at patterns, LOL!

Morning everyone

I just knit the rib-a-roni hat. Maybe it was me but the adult medium *just* fits my 15 month old. I used light worsted yarn though so that might have been the problem. Other than that I absolutly LOVE the pattern.

I have an exam today, wish me luck!

It's freezing here today, well, for here.. probably feels warm to you all up north.
15 w/ the windchill :frozen:

I think I'm going to CO a hat or two today, the kids need new hats and mitts.. is this really silly looking? I bet it would keep them warm! I'll probably mod the 'scarf' part so it just buttons or is a pull over, I think that tying it would bug the crap out of them.
