How much are you taking and when do you take it? I take mine an hour before bed so I'm not knitting at that time and I've never had any difficulty. Thank goodness.
Are you familiar with yarnsub.com? Go to this site, type in the yarn recommended and yarnsub will list yarns similar to that which you wish to use.
Look up ptosis surgery. This is what doctors perform whether cosmetic or corrective to correct droopy eyelids. You need a professional eye/plastic surgeon. My daughter had to have this surgery done numerous times because of droopy eyelids. If too much skin is removed the eye will not close fully resulting in dry eye.
I'll put the ranch to good use on my salad tonight.
I can say something that will end up in the Attic, so I won't say what I'm really thinking. Problems are meant to be solved so someone has to participate to help solve them. If no one participates in problem solving then nothing is accomplished.
no1girl is correct. Been there, done that and my husband was in heaven. I used a "magic slate" to communicate when I went out in public. If you don't remember, a magic slate is what we used to write on with a stylus then peel the transparent paper up erasing the message. This is what the US officials used when they discovered listening bugs in the US embassy in Russia.
Go to Ravelry.com, in search box type in Mu Shu. This is a blanket knit in squares but knit all in one. This is probably what you are looking for. No need to sew anything together.
Go to your local yarn shops, not big box craft stores, and see what is available. You never know what will be on sale, but a work of art should use quality yarns, not 40% off from JoAnn's, Michaels or Hobby Lobby. Art Yarns, Debbie Bliss, Rowan and many others have beautiful yarns for this particular sweater.
Glad to know you are up and running. I'm not looking forward to having this done as I've already had carpal tunnel, both wrists. Now onto the bionic thumbs. Presently I wear thumb splints. Thank goodness I can knit when I wear them.
Stitch dictionaries of one kind or another.
If you go to the Woolywonderscrochet site you will find this blanket. However, the instructor talks you through this pattern rather than also providing the stitch for this pattern. Sorry to say I found her voice very grating. Turn off the sound if you wish to follow what she's demonstrating.
There is also slip 1 knitwise, slip 1 purlwise, ktogtbl. When you have time check out nonaknits.typepad.com/nonaknits/2006/07/comparing-left-.html. This site discusses 7 left leaning decreases or go to search on this site and type in nonaknits left leaning decreases. You'll find it. Very interesting.
Lee1313...go to ravelry.com/patterns/library/five-hour-baby-jacket-franklin-variation for the pattern. It's on his blog Fridays with Franklin from Maker's Mercantile
You an knit a square blanket, but check Ravelry, free to join, to see if there's anything similar to a knit Granny Square version. If you are talking about a square with holes as with a crocheted version, then no, but if you are talking about a "regular" square, then yes. You can do this as a mitered square, or with yarn-overs or other increases at the corners. I just Google knit granny square and found a few examples.
