Happy dance by SlinkyToy
I've got yarn for sale right now - the only problem is I don't have enough of any one colorway or weight or type to make a project. Some hanks are large enough that a thrifty knitter could eke out shorty socks, or cap/mittens for a kid, but... With luck I *will* be able to produce project-sized...

Regarding 'queens' in RCTY by Noreen's Knit*che
Rotflmao, I just had a thought after skimming through the posts, and of COURSE we can't have queens here at RCTY.... we are NOT only women here! And... if the men became 'queens'... we'd be talking a whole different GROUP! LOL, Hugs, Noreen Noreen's Knit*che

Hey Noreen by SlinkyToy
FWIW, I knit 2-ply laceweight yarn on 4mm needles. I'm a tight knitter. I'd probably knit cobweb on 3.5mm needles. YMMV of course ;)

Discussion Topic: Knitting and Purling by CMM PDX2
Never noticed any difference - and I've looked, too! g I've also checked the different sections on items partly knit back-and-forth, and partly knit in the round. That because of experts saying your gauge knitting in the round is usually looser than knitting flat. Well, I must be strange; I...
