Try soaking your nails in denture cleaner. It whitens teeth, it whitens nails also. I use denture cleaner on my nails and it does a wonderful job of whitening them.

What is the significance of using only cotton yarn? Before you begin knitting find out why only cotton. Cotton is not the most forgiving yarn as it doesn't stretch. Check with your local yarn shops for quality cotton yarns. Maybe bamboo or linen could be an alternative.

Do you wish to wear this hat or is it for someone else? male, female, etc. The Lucy hat, for pay, on Ravelry is a beautiful cloche which will complement any female, young and not so young alike.

A shamrock pattern for the dishcloth. Have you checked Ravelry for ideas?

Somewhere in the mists of time I saw a demonstrator wrap the yarn around her thumb to form a loop. I've been using the thumb version ever since. Very simple and very fast.

And don't forget that "c" note and I don't mean music.

Try various cast-ons and bind-offs for this project to see what you like best. You can cast-on in pattern, the same with binding off or you can try the Chinese waitress cast on with Helen's bind-off as both these work together. It's your choice.

Besides our knitting and crocheting, many enjoy Tunisian crocheting. There are afghan hooks/Tunisian hooks and there are interchangeable crochet hooks. If you had your choice, what type hook would you prefer, straight afghan hook or interchangeable hooks and which brand?

I wish to branch out and try something new and though I crochet, I have not tried Tunisian crocheting. Besides, Purl Soho just downloaded a beautiful Tunisian scarf with matching hat in the Gobelin pattern and I'm itching to try this.

Thanks for your help and happy hooking.

Never knit my husband anything until after we were married and that was a complex cable sweater. We're still married, 50 years. Oh where has the time gone?

Time to get a sock knitting machine.
