Dyeing Question by hesira
I've been trying to reduce my stash and have been working on a vintage baby jacket from an early 1940's publication. The pattern called for 3 oz of yarn. I had 4 oz of 100% merino sock yarn that had the same gauge, so thought I had ample yarn to make the jacket. Nope. Made the fronts and back...

Long Tail Cast On - How much???? by Padishar Creel
I am pretty good at estimating short rows of knitting when I cast on. However, I am not doing a sweater is there a rule of thumb for the long tail cast on? Cast on 244 with size 6 needles -- so how long should my tail be for this? Thanks for your help! Padishar Creel

Length of circular needles? by myswendy
Ok, this may sound like a dumb question, but for some reason, I'm having trouble figuring this out: I can't figure out, if a pair of circular needles are 7 x 24 (for example), if that means it's 24 inches of nylon string between the needles or if the needles are included in the length. All my...

Sunday 5/13 by WoolyGooly
Knitting Beaded silk shawl of my own design. The knitting goes very slowly as I have to push along several hundreds of beads as I go. I've had to cut out two knots so far (from my $50+ hank of yarn, grrr) and make Russian joins. It's fiddly but not challenging as such things go. Seed stitch...

Weight to Yardage by hesira
Hi Everyone, I have a question. My MIL gifted me with some undyed handspun NZ merino. The yardage is written on the label, but I'm not sure where to begin with the gauge. It's approximately 388 meters and weighs 5 oz. How does one figure the weight to yardage (in this case meterage I guess)...

Suggestions needed by spampot[_2_]
Knowing how many UFOs -- well, to be honest, UnStarted Projects (USPs) I have at home, I was VERy virtuous at the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival yesterday; only succumbed to a few super-bargains (then I spent $$ on unusual garden plants at the herb-&-plant tent). So what would be a good...

Name that fleece by Vintage Purls
Hi all, You excellent advice is sought. I bought (via online auction) what I thought was a kilo of merino (that's what they called it in the auction description). It arrived today and it's most certainly not merino. I suspect it's English Leicester but I thought I ask you to try identifying...

English combs?? by No Name
OK. The espinner works. That sets up an appetite for combed top. And, that means English Combs. If I am going to be working with fleece from traditional English breeds, such as Cotswold, & Romney: How thick should the teeth of my combs be? How far apart should the teeth be? How many rows?

sizing crochet/knitting thread? by myswendy
Ok, I give up. I'm going all over the internet trying to find a site that explains how thread is sized. I have a cute pattern for a sweater vest for a doll that calls for a particular size, but when I went to the store (without the directions, of course), I got home and discovered I had bought the...

Sunday 5/6 by WoolyGooly
Monster Fake Faeroese is finished, except for ends and a photo op. Weather has been crummy (gray, overcast, humid as hell) so I'm not in a hurry to darn in ends and sweat in a shawl big enough to use as a 4-person tent while my husband fumbles around with the camera. Started a new cardigan for me....
