    chit chat

    I feel like opening up a singles bar for all my single knitted socks. Maybe they'll meet others singles there . . .
  3. I know where Carencro is! Marc Broussard is from there. Plus I've been there before. I much prefer south Louisiana to North which is where I'm stuck.
  4. Usually you can as long as they're not superwash. Just make a small square with both and test it to make sure they felt at the same rate.
  5. Don't do it, 9 times out of ten if it's in a book you can't sell it, it's ilegal.

    Brown dye

    well you could use acid dyes. Lots of people say orange and grape kool aid mixed together makes brown. I've never tried it but it might work.
  7. Ok that's just too adorable for words!
  8. We have a group of about 15 that meets every week, sometimes at a bookstore, sometimes at a bakery (yarn and cookies, a lethal combo haha) sometimes at someones house. We mainly knit but a few of us do "hook" once in a while. Boy that sounds bad. HAHAHA! I love my little group, we range in age from about 20ish to about 50ish, it's a nice variety.
  9. Maybe you could find some Patons Brilliant online somewhere? Or Lion Brand's Glitterspun. That would be perfect for the glove.
  10. The few times I do use DPN's non knitters will say "Wow, your getting really good at that knitting thing, you've gone from using 2 needles to . . 1 , 2 , 3, 4 . . uh 5 now! WOW!" LOL! I love comments like that!
  11. I already know I'm making the She Knits bag in there. LOVE it!
  12. Thanks everyone! No pattern really I just winged it. I'm trying to do another one just like it so maybe I can write out what I did.
  13. I taught myself with a book and the videos from knittinghelp.com.
  14. Yarn overs are supposed to leave a gap, that's why they are so essential to lace knitting. They make little holes, as do M1's (Make 1's). What you you making? Maybe a KFB (Knitting into the front and back of the stitch) would work better for you than a yarn over.
