Question when you slip as if to Purl by starla torres
When the pattern says to slip as if to Purl, is the yarn in the front or the back. I always forget. I need to write it down somewhere.

Yarn for socks by [email protected]
I was wondering- has anybody here used Alpaca yarn to make socks with? I've used a lot of wool, and was wondering if Alpaca had similar qualities, such as being water-repellent and holding in body heat. Would Alpaca wear as well as wool? Has anyone tried it? Thanks! Marie and the cats

dk yarn by Mystified One[_2_]
I'm trying to find a good source for double knit yarn for toys. Since most of the toys are done with many colors of yarn, I'm going to need a lot of colors. The good thing is that these are all small bits of color, so I don't need much. Kind of makes it seem a waste to buy a bunch of skeins...
