My OCD says they must match. If I can't get them to match, I make a hat.

I've also felt the ChiaoGoo were a bit sticky for metal needles so go figure. I like Hiya Hiya and Knitter's Pride Nova.

Please don't let this consume you. Don't give them power over you. I am by no means saying don't get involved but perhaps get involved to the level that you can safely deal with the situation.


This is good advice. Thanks and I hope many will take it into consideration.

I have been knitting 2 at a time toe up socks and want to knit some for my teenage grandkids, but I know they will end up in the washer and dryer (the socks not the kids). I'm looking for recommendations for yarn that will withstand this sort of NON care. I also don't want to use tiny needles. 3, 4 or 5 would be great. All advice appreciated.


With needles that large you'll need worsted weight sock yarn. Felici Worsted is a good one but they're almost all sold out. I'm not sure they'll be bringing it back.

ETA: I never throw my socks in the washer or dryer. Too precious!

Universal Yarn Cotton Supreme

It's super soft. Comes in both worsted and dk weights. It's kind of expensive, but it does make a nice face cloth.

Defiantly church on Sunday morning


Sometimes the typos and/or spellcheck are so funny!

The only way I have found to keep a stockinette stitch scarf from curling is to knit it as a tube on circular needles then block it flat. You end up with a double thick scarf.


This is a good idea. Using fingering weight yarn would make for a nice scarf.

Any leftovers?


Some sauerkraut that we'll eat tonight. I don't usually like sauerkraut but this was really good. My brother made it. A little cheese babka left but I can take care of that. No more kielbasa or perogies. All gone!

How funny that so many people think Sunday morning is the only time anyone can go to church! Are God's working hours really that limited? My MIL is a devout Catholic; she and her sister attend mass on Saturday evenings. You can find her every Sunday morning on her deck enjoying a cup of coffee and watching her little dog run around the yard.


My parents go to church every day, not just Sunday. They assure me God is there more often than just one hour a week.

Cute idea books! You're making me wish I had some wool here. Everything I took with me is superwash. I've been avoiding my knitting because I made a mistake on my socks and have to tink quite a few rounds, which I hate doing. Yesterday I was cooking cooking cooking. Two of my bros came over and we feasted, Polish style.

Just an FYI ... GTH means Go to Hell. If one meant to say "God the Haters" then that's what you type. If you're just talking to yourself then it doesn't matter what you write/type. You'll know what you meant.

I do like a sharper point but sometimes a blunt tip works better. I recently had to frog a project and switch needles because the yarn I was using was splitsville and the needles too sharp. I'm using bamboo now and the knitting is much more fun! Well, fun until I had to tink 15 rows back to fix a mistake.
