I too, am posting. But I have received nothing from the group in two days. We can locate the forum and post. But more clicking is involved to actually view the forum. And if anyone replies to this, I won't see it.


Actually, responses to that topic will show up in Watched Topics.

Yes, I agree, use the ones on the tape, just sew the edges and ends of the tape to your knitting. That way the prongs never go through the knitting.

Check to see if there is a GriefShare group near you. It was very helpful to me even years after my dad's death, which I hadn't properly grieved at the time.

I have done up to several yards. It's not impossible.

Do it as I learned to separate embroidery floss:

Measure it out, drape it around the living room. Slide two strands down the other strands rather than pulling them apart. Work your way down doing the sliding about a yard at a time. Repeat as necessary till it has all separated. It will be tedious but this method avoids tangling.

Like this, only with yarn. https://youtu.be/6XfauuaNJ2I

Thank you. I dislike long sleeves and always shove them up my arms, so much better to have half sleeves!


I wear short sleeved cardigans and other toppers from spring through fall at work, as a defense against the chill a/c. This one is on my radar now as something to perhaps knit for myself. :)

Most complaints I have read here, come from a people problem. Like any domestic animal, farm or otherwise, they need proper care in not only feeding but cleaning to keep them healthy. A few backyard chickens, do not smell, when taken care of properly.


Agree!

Very nice!

I see what you mean about the first pattern being very affordable, I saved it in my favorites for later. :)

A lot of municipalities allow backyard chickens.

If you ever decide to knit toe up, as soon as the sock is big enough, just tuck the yarn for each sock into the toe. No tangles! It helps if you are pulling yarn from the center.


What a great idea, I wish I had thought of this! It's about midsock that untangling gets to be a chore for me. I will try this next time.

I forgot to mention that internet searches will bring up sites with used looms, though most will be more than you are planning on spending. Craigslist, Ebay, and local classifieds are other sources. I bought mine for $1000 from a guild member who was downsizing.

One variegated and one solid also works well.

I would ask your weaving class instructor for input. Is there a spinners/weavers guild nearby? Sometimes weavers sell old equipment there as they trade up.

There are small folding tabletop looms that might be in your price range, used. I learned on one of those, a Leclerc Voyager I think? It has been awhile.

A heddle loom would also be inexpensive, but a different technique is used.
