regarding Kitchen disasters by SlinkyToy
My mother gave me a set of melamine mixing bowls when I got my first apartment. My roomie, being the non-cooking dweeb that he was, thought they were stoneware (they were the fake white sponge over blue enamel motif) and put one in the oven. We had to replace the stove. "Noreen's Knit*che"...

Afghan project by Laura
I'm crocheting an afghan following a pattern in a book. The pattern is for a cardinal afghan. My problem is that I have never done multiple colors in a crocheted piece. I'm at a loss at how to do this. According to the pattern, for the first row of the chart you crochet 19 sts of white then 1...

Afghan project by Laurie
I'm sending in squares too (2 or 3)! Mine are crocheted tho. Do you still want a garter stitch around them or is there something else you want to do with crocheted squares? Laurie Washougal, WA

Hi fellow RCTY-er's!! Here's 'another' yarn query for you... have any of our elite bought and USED the LionBrand Magic Stripes yarn? If you have, did you only use it for socks? I'm wondering this: they sort of recommend it for socks, and show sock made with it, and it shows beautiful stripes and...

stinky yarn by Laurie
Ugh, I just learned a lesson. I bought some yarn off ebay. Nothing huge or expensive. Just an inexpensive kit of yarn in Packers colors for a gift. The kit came and actually the box it was packed in smelled overwhelmingly like potpourri. I thought, "how nice." But when I opened the little...

afghan square by Laura
I'm doing a knitted square like you described. It's the center panel for a shawl. Two stitches is a good start. As for when you decrease, that depends on how big you want it to be. The center panel for my shawl is done in garter stitch and doesn't start till I have 116 sts. The pattern is...

Yesterday, I attended Emma Popek's party celebrating the release of her latest book, and Emma had suggested that I bring my knitting. It was a very cosmopolitan group. The woman sitting next to me leaned to knit in Bombay more than 50 years ago. She showed me a knitting technique that I had...

Re- Stiffner for doilies by Goaliemom
I just wanted to say that this post brought back some memories for me. I remember my mom having a very large stretcher board for her doilies. It resembled a peg board but had doily shapes printed on it. Circles and squares patterns for you to follow. She had a bag of special pegs for...

The DNA Strand in Yarn... by Sandy Best
Someone had posted before about the double stranded DNA in yarn (http://noodle.pds.k12.nj.us/june/). The pattern is for knitting. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions about how I could change it to crochet. I don't know how to knit, so I don't understand the pattern! I haven't tried...
