    Newbie Alert

    and ! The folks here are great!
  2. Hello everyone: I'm looking for Sugar and Cream, Light Blue (color # 00026), Dye Lot 145624. My sister needs approx 1/3 of a ball to finish a baby blanket that she's making. (In the interests of full disclosure I must admit that she's kn--tting it! I love her anyway though! ) If anyone has this, we would both appreciate it very much! She says that she'd gladly trade another ball of S&C for her and pay postage. The baby is due early May, so she needs to get this asap. I thank you in advance for any help you can give my Baby Sis (and me).

    Where Do I Start?!

    A ball winder is used to transform hanks of yarn into ready-to-use balls. Look at this thread here at the 'Ville for pictures and views/reviews of various brands.

    Corn Yarn

    The colors are certainly gorgeous though, aren't they? I couldn't afford to buy a lot of the skeins to make a large item (e.g., a sweater or ghan), but maybe two skeins (if enough yardage is in 'em) to make a narrow scarf or a pair of socks... PS: I found this knitter's review of one brand of corn yarn that is an interesting read. Now we need one of the crocheters at the 'Ville to use and rate one of these corn-y (sorry, couldn't resist - ) yarns!

    6-12-24 Rr

    There have been threads here at the 'Ville with directions for the RR and its various point variations. Look up the blog for thekidneybean (she's a 'Viller too, as I remember) and her Chromium Star Blanket. Also [B]Chrome Kitty[/b] (here at the 'Ville) and her Round Rainbow Ripple Star Blankie. If you want to buy a book, "40 Favorite Ripple Afghans" from Leisure Arts contains the 24-point "Aztec Sun" RR and some other nice non-RR ripple variations.
