You can see what the thread is about before you open it. If it doesn't interest you, don't read it..........easy enough!

That doesn't answer the question.

Why is there so much politics in Main lately? I'm not even going to bother to report it anymore. The Ostrich doesn't seem to care.

I really like them in the double points. They don't roll away when you put them down! I have some Kollage and some Knitter's Pride, both wood and metal. The wood ones from Knitter's Pride are a little too sticky for me. The Kollage are my favorite. I just tried to order some Kollage dpns in size 1.5 from the Kollage Needle Shop's website. They're out of stock until at least next month. :(

PayPal is quite safe and they stand behind you in purchases and sales. If you are concerned, open a separate bank account and only use it for PayPal transactions.

That's what I did. I won't purchase anything yarny unless the seller uses Paypal.

It gets a lot better if you care to learn. If you totally dismiss magic loop from your knitting tools, you are doing yourself a great disservice.

Not really. There is nothing that can be done with magic loop that can't be done some other way...

Drops used to make their Fabel yarn in worsted weight but I can't seem to find that anymore. Briggs & Little Tuffy is a good WW sock yarn but hard to find in the states. I found West Yorkshire Spinners Aire Valley DK. I got it at Wool Warehouse. Not WW but close. I wish Knit Picks would bring back their Stroll sport weight, which was really more of a DK.

My Hazel Knits yarn (Sharny Pants ) should be here tomorrow!! I have no idea when I'll get to knitting it but I can't wait to pet it.

Only regular priced yarn is discounted. If the yarn you've got in your cart was already on sale, it doesn't count. I don't think it applies to tools (needles) and I'm not sure about books. You would see the discount in your cart before you checkout so if it's not there, the discount doesn't apply.

I will agree with those that say try one at a time for now. These are your first socks, you're new to smaller needles, and I don't know if you're also new to magic loop. Juggling the yarn as well is frustrating. If I were to try all those new things at once, I'd have no socks. ;)

I would not use yarn photos from someone else without permission. If the person complains, Ravelry will take them down. I've asked some of the bigger yarn sources (Webs, Jimmy Beans, Knit Picks) if it's ok to use their photos on Ravelry and they said it was fine as long as I purchased the yarn there. I right-click on the photo and choose "Save Image As", then upload that image to Ravelry.

Yes, I saw those projects on Ravelry, but I noticed that not all those 623 projects were made with this type of yarn. So, I was a bit confused. I figured since this yarn has polyamide, it would be fine for socks but not sure.

If it had some elastic in it maybe ... I would think both the silk and cotton would stretch out and become saggy rather quickly, especially with the high silk content.

I wouldn't. I checked on Ravelry and out of 623 projects with that yarn, not one was socks. A few people did baby booties. I saw mostly sweaters and tops.

Speaking of yarn. Since I started making socks again, I needed a treat for my next pair. Bought this at LYS. Usually don't spend quite this much for sock yarn, but it looked like Spring to me.

Gorgeous! Alegria is on my wish list.
