Blocking boards by Nyssa
This newsgroup is seriously in need of some life support, so here goes. I've recently gotten back into lace knitting, but I'm starting to reach the limits of size on the piece of foam core board I've been using for dressing the lace. I remember hearing/reading in the past of homemade mounting...

Paternayan yarn by Janet Moriarty
About ten years ago our church made some needlepoint kneelers. They have been attacked by moths on the sides. I have some of the yarn left and I have the numbers, but the main background color was a large skein and the number is not on it. I have been checking the net and I think the color that...

materials for knitting socks by talenknot
I wanted to start a knitting project and knit socks for my entire family, but I'm a bit new when it comes to yarn (most of my projects have mainly been in sewing :P). I've shopped around at both offline and online sites such as these, and found that yarn comes in a variety of different materials...

Searching for Dji Dji by gobonniego
I am searching for Dji Dji yarn by Stanley Berroco. This yarn is now vintage and no longer available in stores. This yarn looks like mohair but is actually brushed wool made in Ireland. If anyone has a stash of this yarn and would like to sell it, please let me know.

knitting socks by Jennym
Hello all I'm trying to teach myself how to knit socks and I'm getting on all right (once I figured out that when knitting in the round stocking stitch you just keep on knitting and it's fine). I just wondered about wool types. Currently I'm using DK. Would knitting in 4-ply be worth all the extra...

Darn it! by Joy Beeson
It would appear that there are enough lurkers on this newsgroup to hold a conversation after all -- all it needs is for each of us to start a thread. So -- do your hand-knits get worn enough to require repair? If so, what is your favorite method? I have picked up stitches and knit new toes...

I found this site when I googled the above title. The answer found is that these are basically semantics. Have begun knitting in earnest recently. Last year decided I wanted to learn how to knit, and specifically how to knit socks. The attempts throughout the year have been quite humbling. But...
