  1. from Central Florida! What part of the state are you in? I'm about 10 miles from Disney.
  2. I got mine on sale. They're ok. They're very light (weight-wise). The design is very similar to Clover Soft Touch hooks. The light does help when using darker yarn, but the light through the tip can be extremely bright.
  3. Umm, well . . . I got caught up in in the MS3 KAL, and this took a back seat this summer. I had planned on finishing it by his birthday (7/28), but that didin't happen. I'm just about finished with MS3 . . . and I will be picking this back up again and working solely on it until it's finished. It's about 2/3's of the way finished, and I'm through all the color changes . . . so it should go a little faster now.
  4. Same here. I've not tried Denise, but I wouldn't trade my Knit Picks Options for anything!
  5. from Central Florida (Disney Area).
  6. Here's my test version of Katchan's amazing doily. I used size 10 thread on this. This was a wonderful experience. It's an amazing doily! Thank you again Kathy for letting me test this for you.
  7. What a great Gnome!! I love his beard.
  8. Wow, I know I'm in trouble if Empress has seen it. I know I could reconstruct it . . . I was just hoping someone might have an old ball band laying around that they weren't using. This is a pretty big afghan, and the chain is pretty long. It's absolutely gorgeous worked in a single color or in varigated too. I've made this afghan both ways, in addition to the striped version I attached. I'll keep looking here at thome, and keep my eyes open for the pattern on the net somewhere. . . Thanks to everyone that took the time to look for me.
  9. Here are a couple of pictures of one I have here at home.
  10. Help! Red Heart Classic had a ripple pattern on their ball bands in the late 80's / early 90's. I've made several of these years ago, and would like to make another one. However, I had a copy of the ball band, but I can't locate it ANYWHERE. It had different count ridges (i.e., 3, 5, 7, 9, & 11). I've checked online, and can't seem to locate it. Does anyone know where I might find a copy of this? Thanks!
  11. I've got a pair of Pomatomus Socks (wool/nylon blend - Etsy hand dyed yarn) in progress right now. I'm almost finished with the gusset on the 1st sock. Morning Glory Wrap (from Knitspot.com) is patiently waiting for me to cast on with Sea Silk / Tiger Colorway.
  12. Depends on the project. I started out using my other needle to lift over. My favorite current BO is *2tog tbl, slip stitch back on left needle* - Repeat** until all stitches are gone. I got the tip from Annie Modesitt when she was on Knitty Gritty. I've also used a crochet hook for larger projects - this tip came from Lily Chin when she was on Knitty Gritty.
  13. I tried for years to learn the "Throw Over" method, but just could not get it to work. I finally stubbled on "Continental" and the light bulb finally came on. I can do combination knitting, and I have used the throw over method on a fair isle hat . . . but it was very slow going. Worth it in the long run to avoid twisting the yarn though. I love to learn new techniques, even if it ends up not working well for me.
  14. I don't know how I missed this! What a cool option. I just love how accommodating C'ville is. I just joined both groups. I don't know if I'd classify myself as an experienced knitter . . . but I definitely have no fear in throwing myself into a difficult pattern.
  15. Another beautiful creation Kathy. I'm just in awe of your talent.
