Knitting/Crocheting from unspun wool by Jenn

Class Today by Alison
I took a free class today at a library branch with a great knitter. We learned how to make Elizabeth Zimmerman's Baby Surprise Jacket. It's very cool - you just knit, using double decreases and "make ones" and when it's finished, you fold and suddenly it's a little sweater. Of course I got about 10...

Finally, a use for aluminum DPNs by Wooly
I don't like aluminum needles. They're cold, they stay cold, they have no give, they hurt my hands. But I have finally found a use for the odd aluminum DPNs that seem to have found their way into my bag: hairsticks! Today I broke my last bamboo hairstick as I was jabbing it into my bun. As I...

Ladies Workbook - free ebooks by B Vaughan

Large circular needles by Vintage Purls
Hi all, I have a pattern that calls for #13 24" circular needles. Now I'm in N.Z. and we use the metric system, so I think that the equivalent is 9mm, 60cm. Trouble is the largest I can find in local shops is 8mm (and then only in 100cm length). Can anyone suggest a good online source for needles...

Yar! Ahoy Matey! by Wooly
A week late (two weeks late?) for TLAP day, but a month early for Halloween. I'm sending the sprout out as a pirate this year, this is part of his costume. Next I need to make him an eyepatch (black with an orange S&B) but that won't take long. I made this dubblemussa-style using Cascade220 in...
