If you are into splints ask about the "PUSH" metagrip thumb CMC brace. One of the orthopods recommended this version however, I have both the CMC joint and the thumbs involved so this type of splint, for me, is not suitable. These are also NOT inexpensive but much less expensive than custom make splints.
At present I don't want to become the bionic woman for my hands and thumbs so I wear thumb braces day and night. For the day the splints go around my thumbs up to the joints below the thumb nails, at night they wrap around the palms of my hands and yes I can knit with both styles but the daytime version is easier for knitting and crocheting. Two orthopods recommended thumb surgery but I am holding off. I've also had cortisone shots. Now, get a second and even a third opinion before doing anything.
Also floppy ears, 3 needle bind-off(no decreases, just knit straight up). Check etsy, Ravelry and pinterest for pictures.
Check Ravelry, but this type of pattern may lend itself more toward crochet rather than knit.
Check Churchmouse on Ravelry for the "shoulder cozy". This is a paid pattern but Ravelry does have similar versions that are free.
Good going. We all need humor in our lives. Now make a matching hat for your daughter.
Contact the designer and ask your question.
No crocheting around burp cloths. I found the following pattern on the internet..."My Happy Nursery.Burp Cloth Pattern" from cloud9fabrics.com. I have had great success with this pattern.
There's also "Potatoes Anna", though I do this with sweet potatoes, dried cranberries, brown sugar and butter. Google Potatoes Anna to find a number of recipes.
Michaels has always accepted competitor's coupons. I have used JoAnn's coupons at Michaels and vice versa. I have not tried Hobby Lobby.
You can do a C2C by knitting, however, you do have to decide when to start decreasing which means you have to count the stitches on the needle. Some C2C patterns use yarnovers for increases...k3, yo, knit to end. I make baby blankets this way and start decreasing when I have 230 stitches on the needle; I'm using dk or worsted weight wool.
Ellebelle, if you have a local yarn shop that carries Addi hooks or needles, go test drive. Otherwise, contact Addi through Skacelknitting.com and ask about inline vs. tapered crochet hooks. They'll be more than happy to answer your questions. My one cautionary tale, see if you can assemble the Addi clicks. I have the IC needles and use jar grippers to hold needle and cable to insert and twist when assembling.
Wjeanec, Tunisian crochet is different from "regular" crochet as stitches do stay on cables in the crochet process. There are numerous videos that show Tunisian crochet. It's very interesting.
