yarn over
Hi everyone,
I have been doing yarn overs by going to the back instead of coming forward as shown in demos. Is there any difference if knitting by the former? Never did yarn overs coming from the back to the front. Awkward for me.

Mel Tillis
Just heard that country singer Mel Tillis died today.
We saw him several times. Great performer and entertainer.

We were in Kansas City to a dinner buffet show and one of his performances. Someone passed him a note that there was a young boy and his mother sitting in front of him. Mel was informed that the young man had a terrible stuttering problem.

After intermission before the show began again, Mel came out on stage and asked that he come up to visit with him. Mel sat down on the stage floor with the young man and began talking to him. Mel had difficulties getting all the words out during their conversation. He explained that he had problems when he was about his age. He found out that he could sing without stuttering. The young man lite up like a Christmas tree. The two visited with each other thirty minutes before the show started again. Mel received a big hug from the young man.

One could have heard a pin drop in the audience during the conversation between Mel and the young man. Not one in the audience left, or shouted, "go on with the show".

It was a very memorable evening for everyone. And a good dinner.

Another question from a newbie
Knitting 3 weeks now, on 2nd project which is golf club covers. Using DPNs in a K2P2 rib, 36 st total. Going OK (see pic) but the DPNs are super awkward and slow. Pattern calls for an increase to 45 stitches for the larger portion (body). My question is can I switch to circular needles at that point. What is the minimum stitch count for circular needles? How is the best way to do that if OK to do so? It seems like it would be easier to use circular needles even though I have not used them before. Again super newbie here.

My first sweater!!!
Well, well, after purchasing my kh 710 (three weeks ago) i have been practicing a lot, first i did a pair of socks, oversize but was a good practice, after that i knit a pair of mittens , also i knitted a lot of exercises between those projects, and now finally i knitted a sweater, it was very fun except the seaming part, it was ok but not so fun. And i would like to share that with all of you, now I want to purchase a ribber and a bulky machine, what bulky do you recomend me?

I'd never thinked that knitting on a knitting machibe would be so fun!!!

Next project will be something with cables....I think.

Mary Maxim Crocheted Cardigan
I have had this pattern for a while and decided to make it for my daughter.

I used cotton and the pattern wasn't as challenging as I thought it would be. I added a button to hold it in place!

Beware the snow v .5
I finished this today. Only knitted half of the pattern since I chose to use worsted weight instead of fingering weight. I'm enjoying stranded colorwork.
