Sharing a photo of my sweetheart today while on a walk. I purchased the fedora a few weeks ago.

I hadn't even noticed the upside down pacifier! It hit near 70 degrees today by me. A record high and very unseasonal but a beautiful day for a walk. She's totally in style.

I'd rather knit. This is a knitting forum so, ya know ... knit happens!

I would just wash it, smooth it out, and lay flat to dry. I don't think I'd be brave enough to iron it.

Rascalor has blocked me because I answered her post where she complained about someone flying the American flag upside down. I agreed with her. Then she blasted me. Asking me if I was a proud Canadian. Of course I am. I think she is out to lunch. Brain is scrambled.

Don't worry, it appears most of us are blocked. Welcome to the club! Btw, you can put that rascalor-thing on your ignore list too. That way it can't spew on this thread anymore.

Just looked at this. Amazing she is only charging a starting price of $13.95 to knit a pair of socks!

I was just thinking, maybe I'll send her a couple of balls of black sock yarn. I'd LOVE black socks but I'm sure as heck not gonna knit them!

I am guessing that she uses a hand crank machine to knit them? I am sure they aren't nearly as fine as your socks are, Naomi! I am loving wearing them.

In the description she says "I knit my socks by hand ...". Her price is one I wouldn't mind paying, but, this is why non-knitters don't place much value on a hand knit item, be it socks or otherwise. I can definitely say I wouldn't do it for that price! I will only knit socks for myself and my son because they take me so long to make.

They sometimes take a while to ship though I'm not complaining. The prices are good. If you can call, you might get a faster response but I'd email again. They're usually pretty good with the customer service.

Check out Etsy. There is a lady on there that makes socks, all you do is send her the yarn. Her price is very reasonable.

Thank you very much for this information, now just to find out where it is sold.

This is probably the best price for Cascade Fixation -
They have Crystal Palace Panda Cotton too -

My favorite is CoBaSi from HiKoo.

I'm the opposite. The catalogues do nothing for me and I usually toss them to the recycle bin as soon as they come in. The emails grab my attention every time!

I am sooo glad you started this topic. I only have one hank of this gorgeous Bat Sh*t Crazy goodness but I too need suggestions! I love the cushy softness and the phenomenal color saturation. I can see why Miss Babs calls it YOWZA!

Truly cuddle worthy!

You're holding it just like it was a baby. The more I see that color, the more I like it.

They look nice and warm. Who is going to detangle that skein after they get their feet out?

There are some videos on You Tube that can help with picking up the stitches along the heel flap. It's not all that important how many are picked up, just that they're somewhat evenly spaced apart and that the number of stitches on both sides of the heel flap are the same. How many stitches are you able to pick up? If it were only a stitch or two less, it wouldn't matter. If it were a lot of stitches, the fit would change.

This video may help.
She's picking up a different number of stitches but the technique is the same.

Lara! If you posted a photo I missed it but I'm happy to see you. Stay well, and yes, post as often as you can! I love it when you can spend a little time with us. ♥
