I want to share with you by Shillelagh
a lovely couple of hours this afternoon. It was warm and sunny, around 22C, so I took a snack of crackers, cheese and a glass of wine out to my screened porch. My little cockatiel came with me, along with the latest issue of Canadian Home & Country. This is when you wish the day would last...

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

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...
