Needles Corona CH-1500
I just wonder if anybody knows where to get new needles to a Corona ch-1500?
Thanks in advance
HI everyone. I'm about to try knitting socks again. My problem is the roughness of the socks. It's like wearing sandpaper. Is there a yarn that's soft when knitted? Or is this how my knitting method turns yarn into rocks?
Ana in her Norah Gaughan Cardi
I know I have posted this before, but I had made it for my sister in law for her birthday. I just sent it to her and here she is modeling it. I think she is so pretty. She even went out and bought a top to compliment the lavender color in the sweater.
Again, it's the Arbor Cardi by Norah Gaughan and the yarn is Rambouillet sheep.
Lace Carriage is Transferring Extra Stitches
Hi all, been lurking for a while but this is my first post. I am new to machine knitting and just bought a Singer Sk360. It knits beautifully now that I have worked out most of the kinks. I replaced a few needles and the sponge bar and cleaned up the brushes. I am now trying to figure out the lace carriage. First, one of the drums was stuck so I took it in to get it looked at rather than take it apart myself. It came back with the drum spinning fine but there was a small squiggly looking metal part in the box and now when I try to knit with it, it transfers stitches that don't correspond with the punchcard. I can actually see where transfer happened so I know it's not a dropped stitch. Does anyone know why a lace carriage would do that? At the moment I am hoping that the loose part is from some other machine and ended up in my box by accident.
Some of my WIP's
Am thrilled to be knitting socks on DPNs and/or 9" circulars: Pair #1 gave to my SIL, who loved them
Pair #2 just started for my GD....she picked the yarn, I picked the pattern (one sock done, started second tonight.....P.S. have not blocked/steam pressed the finished one yet.)
Just wanted to share and add if I CAN DO IT, anyone can

Bernat blanket #3826
I have this pattern and I want to start it. I was told that row one is wrong. Before I start has anyone done this blanket? And is there a mistake is row-1? I am really hoping someone can help me. I really like this pattern. This is not my picture but it's a beauty!
Linen or Linen and Silk Yarn advice
I have been humming and haring over yarn to knit a summer weight jacket but as I once again get lost in yarn when I search, would love your advice on good linen or linen and silk yarn for this project.
My great find at Michael's
Last weekend I made $55 selling 3 baby sweaters. This is what I bought at Michael's for that. Mill ends. Made in Turkey. Soft and squishy. I'm in heaven. Awesome trade off.
