Sunday Morning by Wooly
Not much has changed here. I found a 16" bamboo circular to make my Aran's sleeves on. I will have to change to DPNs shortly but I think I can handle it now. Still spinning froghair to be turned into 3-ply for a sweater (takes forever, shouldn't as it isn't much actual wool to be spun!). Was up...

Socks Class by Alison
I've been in a group of cross stitchers for years, but some of us are migrating away to knitting. I'm going to teach a sock class to two friends, both of whom have seen me knit socks and gotten hooked (ha ha). I'm looking forward to it in a couple of weeks! Alison

Decreasing Evenly by hesira
Is there a formula for decreasing or increasing evenly? Or does it really matter when you knit in the round? By that I mean, if I need to increase 8 over 64, does it matter if I have 4 at the beginning and 4 at the end, as long as there are 8 stitches between each increase? I actually go into...

What did the one-armed sweater say by Wooly
To the knitter? "Finish me, damn you!" I have a sweater with one finished sleeve and one 3/4 sleeve. The sweater also needs a neckband, but it looks like a sweater now. Give me another 3-4 days at the (mentally- and physically-challenged) rate I'm going and I might get it 100% finished. Then...
