Hi, don't post often but have a real poser of a question.. My mother recently gave me the stockings she knitted for my sister and I about 50 years ago, but they are badly discolored. The white and light colored areas are yellowed and they generally look grungy. I think they are wool or a mostly...

Owl Teacosy pattern in crochet wanted by KiwiDeb
I'm new here, and am here in desperate need of help. Our family had a teacosy that was crocheted in the shape of an owl, he had two big crocheted circles for eyes, and a very textured body. To cut a long and painful story short, the cosy has been badly damaged, my parents are devastated as it was...

Dennis aka Spikedriver by jan
If you have been posted or lurked on RCTY for a year or more, you will likely remember Dennis and his kind and caring posts.

Knitting needle size by Bea Whitson
I bought some yarn manufactured by a German company. For needle size it shows 2,5 3,5. I'm not familiar with needle sizes using commas. I've checked several sites on the net and couldn't find an answer. Can anyone here help. Thanks

Looking for a pattern by NDJoan
Hi all! A few of you might recognize this request, since I first asked it on rctn. I didn't get much help there (quite a surprise!), so I thought I'd pop in here since it's a knit/crochet question. My sister is looking for a pattern to make slippers that look like Converse sneakers, knit or...

Crochet Hat pattern needed by King's Crown[_3_]
I'm not looking for any hat. I've done several in the past month looking for something a teenager would wear with a brim. My first couple look like hats a jockey would wear. The last one I made looked like something the Confederate army would wear. I just bought another Ravelry pattern and...

Anyone working on anything? by Olwyn.Mary
I am mostly busy sewing, making some fall and winter clothes, but the asthma has subsided enough that I now feel I can knit while watching the tv news. Nothing complicated, mind you, just something to keep the fingers busy. So, I pulled out an old pattern - from the 1960s I think, I bought it...

Wow, what happened to this site? I've been away for a long time but now that I'm back I'm seeing one message for every ten to twenty adverts. This site should be monitored to keep the advertisiers out. :( Maureen

Spinning by Kirsten Watson
Dear everyone I have recently taken up spinning. I'm still very excited about this move, and very pleased to discover that it's not eating into my knitting/crochet time as much as I thought. I'm just plying my first ball of yarn now, so will be able to see how I'm doing. I'm using an Ashford...

Mirjam by [email protected]
I think you were the one that made a moebius? I used to read this group and think I'm remembering correctly. Anyway I have started crocheting one but don't know how wide or long it should be. I'm using a "K" crochet hook and worsted weight yarn so it seems loose enough. I am doing 25 stitches...
