I have now broken 3 of the Knitter's pride cubics and am ready to toss the entire set in the garbage. HATE them. I agree with others here, go with the Kollage. I have one that I use for magic loop sock knitting and I love it!!!
Is anyone happy with the last big sale of Fabel? It seems that a lot of us ordered because of the great pricing.
I bought a bunch because at $1.90 a ball, why not. I do have to say, I don't like it! It's rough and splitty.
Wondering if this dark purple set is too dark for a newborn?
I llove it!!! I absolutely HATE pink and blue and don't know why people knit with those anymore, so outdated!!! Beautiful set!
beautiful and I LOVE the color!!
So impressed ! Did it take forever?
3 days of knitting on and off. Honestly, they look so involved but they knit up beautifully! The pattern is well written and easy to follow.
hahahaha What a HOOT!!!! :lol:

Very nice pattern and colours. Assume they are in DK/worsted. Is there a 4ply version too?
They were done in KnitPicks Capretta, which is a heavy fingering yarn.

I couldn't stop thinking about these after looking at yours. I just had a look at the pattern. What size needle did you use to get gauge? You must have almost been working on darning needles
. a true work of art.
I used 2.50mm Addi lace circulars and did them in the Magic Loop method :)
Knitted in KnitPicks Capretta, pattern by Mary Ann Stephen and available on Ravelry ($$) called Shamrock mitts. This wool is wonderful. First time working with it and I am beyond pleased. So soft and smooth, great definition in my stitches! And the pattern was clear, easy to follow with the end result exceeding my best expectations. I am in LOVE with these mitts! So much so, I am working on a second pair for myself. (These were for a best buddy for St. Patrick's day)
I have NEVER gotten a flu shot. I don't need to be pumping mercury and other toxic chemicals into my body. My elderly parents also have NEVER taken a flu shot and in the las 15 years, not one of us has ever caught the flu. Wash your hands, stay away from sick people, get lots f fresh air, eat a healthy diet, take D3 and C. As for the person who asked for proof of toxic metals in the flu shots, the research is not that hard to do. Do it.
Bought the KnitPicks one because it was cheap, and I got exactly what i paid for. Within 6 months the gears were stripped. I bit the bullet and bought a Stanwood winder and I am beyond pleased with it. My advice: save up and buy something sturdy that will wind a large ball.
a week ago I was thrilled using my new Caspian needles from KnitPicks. Today the needle tip pulled off the cable and 50 stitches fell on my lap. This is exactly what MANY KPers warned about.
No more needle tips from them. I'll go back to Knitters Pride, their quality control is much more reliable.
Bought Knitters Pride cubic, got them for christmas and with the first use, a needle snapped in half dumping a like amount of stitches off in my lap. So, damn...there's no winning....not even sure who i email to have it replaced.
I mean, Really!
as the saying goes: there's a sucker born every minute!
Happy New Year To All !!!!!!! I was wondering has anyone used square knitting needles the interchangeable ones , what brand and do you like them and why. I have heard they keep stitches more uniformed. Thank you everyone for your time
I got a set of Knitters Pride Nova Cubics for Christmas and I am loving them. My hands ache if i knit too long (arthritis) but I am knitting longer and faster with these. I still love my Addi lace tips, but these are fast becoming my new favs. Too bad they don't have smaller sizes though. For socks, I have a Kollage fixed circular that I don't really care for. The needles are heavy and not quite slick enough.
