Can someone help me find the right yarn? by Melinda Meahan - take out TRASH to reply
My 15YO son wants a new helmet liner-type hat to wear under his bicycle helmet to give him some padding and absorb sweat. He wants blue -- not baby blue, but a medium-darkish blue. I am trying to avoid getting something expensive but can't find anything at the local big-box stores (n.b. I...

Knitting Videos for Mittens by Maureen In Vancouver, B.C.
Hello everyone, I'm a long time lurker here who's learned to knit socks from on-line videos. I knit left handed, but that only means I turn the directions around to favour the left side. However, I now want to learn to knit mittens (for Christmas gifts) and desperately want to find on-line...

Braiding by Bricore
Hello everyone, I just found myself a new little hobby. It's not new to others I know but to me, it was. It's called Kumihimo braiding. I really enjoy doing it. Yes, I know... I don't need yet another hobby but I swear fiber hobbies are all so addicting. I just love it. Do any of you do...

Anyone Familiar with Antuco? by joan8904
It's a cotton yarn from EA. I'm making a baby Einstein jacket and using a lot more yardage than expected IF the yardage on the yarn wrapper is true. This project is getting more expensive by the day! Has anyone else used this yarn and had a problem with yardage? joan

The Hat picture by Mary Fisher
I call it the Aberdeen Hat because the grey reminds me of granite (Aberdeen is the Granite City), the gold is the beautiful beach and the blue/green is the lovely colour of the sea there. Aberdeen is also in Scotland - quite a long way north - and although this hat is triangular it's not unlike...

FO by Georgia[_2_]
Got a wonderful book on Fair Isle knitting from Dover (http://store.doverpublications.com/048643107x.html) (though it does repeat the "200 stitches a minute" story that folks have been unable to verify). Anyway, it inspired me to practice up on 2-handed, 2-stranded, flying purple people-eater...

need input on new needles please! by myswendy
I drove myself crazy trying to find my lovely 10-1/2 wooden DPNs for several days to do some I-cords. I finally got the bright(??) idea of cutting my own out of the right-sized dowel (1/4-inch), which I did. I presume it's pine. Anyway, I got 4 quite decent DPNs from the dowel with nice points. I...
