What a cutie pie! I've read that vinegar only works for wool or other animal fibers. The dyes used for cotton are different. I've not used retayne before. I'm not surprised the I Love This Cotton ran on you. It has for me, as well as other brands like Sugar and Creme.
Very true - I made my way through it in a few short minutes.
I nodded off early last night too and seemed to have missed quite a bit. It took only a few minutes to catch up and I'm no speed reader. I just skipped the boring parts. Interesting that Craftygal is a he, not a she. I did catch that!
Please stop posting your stories to try and shame others. It isn't working. We really do know how you work it up. Check it out it is in the Solarium. Spells you pwf gals to a tee.

I don't read in the Sanitarium or the PWF, and I've not posted in either of them. I'm just here for the knitting/crocheting. And the nice peeps. You're not one of them. I got to know the attic people before it went politics, even before it went attic, and there are some nice folks that hang out here. I never cared about their politics, they're just nice to talk to, and they know their knitting/crocheting. There will always be something new to learn from them.
Oh don't worry about that Mambrose3. She's the one that put me on ignore too, and not even over politics. Seems she doesn't get along with anyone for any reason. I read she was a seller on here. Suppose she'll have to move that over to ebay or etsy now. Too bad, so sad.
If you respond in kind and put them on ignore, they cannot answer any of the threads you start, but they can see them. Please do tell us who banned you! It's always fun to know. I've been banned for my "politics" by a couple of people but I don't talk politics on here, never have, so it's kind of funny how someone could know my entire political agenda when I've never expressed it.
Hmmm ... I would use cotton yarn but I have to admit, the photos from the designer are very attractive. They do look like something I'd like to buy. The bit of fuzziness from the wool yarn looks nice. The yarn recommended in the pattern is a single ply 100% felting wool so I don't know how practical that would be. I would expect it to felt and not be able to get another bar of soap in it again - a throw away item. I have no problems with wool but I don't think I'd want it rubbing against me in the shower.
You're so right!! They do this often. I emailed them last year when they had a Knit Picks item for $2.00 MORE than Knit Pick sells it for. The answer I got was they don't set the prices, the people they buy yarn from set the price. Well, that's a bunch of crap because they purchase lots from estates, yarn shops going out of business and from people who want to sell off their stash. They buy LOTS, not individual skeins of yarn. They also told me that if I take advantage of the percentage off, it will make the item cheaper than retail. There are days when the only things on sale are in their BARGAIN BASEMENT section. SO, I asked about the yarns NOT in the bargain basement that have been marked ABOVE retail. I never got an answer. In addition, they will (not today, I looked) offer sales for 40, 50 EVEN 60% off everything on line. This is the only time you can get a bargain from them. Keep looking every day, you'll see the different sales they offer. Personally, I won't buy from them. I just find their business practices creepy. BUT, that's just me.

Ditto. I didn't like their explanation of why their regular prices are above retail either. Their shipping is rather expensive as well as slow.
Since you are here and the other one isn't, Aunty should be asking the ostrich her questions. There's obviously a difference but we can't read the ostrich's mind, so I don't know why she's asking here.
I make a roll top on a lot of my socks and usually knit about 4 rows, then a couple rows ribbing, then switch to whatever pattern I'm doing for the rest. The ribbing will keep it from rolling more than you want. Good luck.
I am still thinking about that, Marilyn. It is definitely out of line. KPG outed my name here a couple of years ago. She either got it from a D&P member. I could out a few of their names, but I won't sink to that level. What solowey did was just wrong.
I know you're thinking about it, but I also vote for reporting to Admin. That really is stalking. And creepy. Others have gotten the boot from this site for less.
