The reason I asked is because I found an item on Ravelry that calls for sport weight yarn. I have 4 skeins of DK Paintbox Yarns and was wondering if I could use them. I will, as some of you have suggested, do a swatch and check. Thank you for your comments. I love this site.

Is there a difference for knitting with Sport Yarn and DK weight yarn. They both seem the same to me.

My grandkids got M&Ms in tubes for Christmas. I had not bought a ball winder yet so I used the empty M&M tube for winding a ball of yarn. I was keeping it in project bag when it occurred to me that this little tube could also be used to carry odds and ends needed for knitting. I put my folding scissors, tapestry needles, stitch markers, cable needles, tape measure, crochet hooks (for picking up drop stitches), and even DPNs in this tube. Kept everything neat and easy to find in my bag!

Now that I have bought myself a lacis Ball Winder I still use the tube for winding center pull mini skeins.

OMG! That video sent chills down my spine!

I'm really so impressed by people that do garment knitting. One day, I hope to knit a cardigan.

Amen. and NEVER visit "the attic" If you can't say something nice, say nothing at all.

What is the "attic" and how does one visit it?

Went to Walmart and got some fat quarters, made 4 yesterday. Thanks for sharing.

I used iron on fleece in order to get them to stand by themselves. I am using them as project bags so I really want them to have enough body to hold their shape. I find them easier to use if they can stand by themselves.

Did you use a pattern for your drawstring bags, and if so can you please tell me where to get it. I love making bags and these would make wonderful gifts. Thank you

I listed and added the links to the two patterns I used for these bags earlier in this thread. They do make good gifts. The choice of fabrics and the size makes the gift that much more personal.

I have a huge fabric stash. Was a quilter before my stroke, but can not longer quilt due to residual damage from the stroke. But I can still crochet, knit and sew with a few adaptions, so I'm truly blessed! Since you're a Beatles fan, have you made one in Beatle fabric? That would be a hoot!

Funny you should say that. I am cutting out one with Beatles Fabric now.

No I don't sell them. I just make them for myself and a few friends.
