Knit Picks has some really nice worsted cotton yarn that looks and feels great. I haven't had any problems with it stretching but I've only made baby clothes with it. I am making a baby blanket with the cotton yarn because it's so soft! That would be the biggest thing I will have made with cotton yarn.

If you don't want to use 100% cotton, there are blends that look pretty interesting.

Somewhere on the web are photos of adults wearing versions of those at the Women's March. I wouldn't, but I like it that some did it.


I can't even imagine what kind of courage it would take to wear one of those out in the public. I'm glad some people are able to do it though.

I wouldn't try that method either--to risky!!! To block acrylic it needs heat, I use a small hand held steamer (steam iron would work) & hold it against couple inches from the item, smooth with your hand & pin if necessary to pattern directions. Let dry. It only takes a couple seconds of steam to uncurl an edge etc so don't linger over an area to long.



I have just been putting them in the dryer. They look really good.

If you google 'vagina costume', you'll get the idea.

I did see some photos of women wearing what looked like home-made versions at one or another of the marches on January 21st. The PussyHats aren't offensive; the vagina suits aren't as innocent, though it's not a bad idea for everyone to know what that part of human anatomy actually looks like. It's amazing how many - men and women too - haven't a clue what it looks like.


OMG! LOL! I googled it and I couldn't believe all of the crazy X-rated Halloween costumes! I guess it doesn't matter how old one is, one can always learn something new! LOL

Personally, I'd like to see this in the attic. I just can just imagine one of these women modelling their vagina suits for children and grandchildren, and pussy hats on little girls.


What is a "vagina suit"?

Lot of Videos available, one of my favorites is Very Pink. I have been watching her this morning.

That's exactly what I was going to suggest. Very Pink Knits. Staci is a really good teacher.

Very cute. What doll is that?

I would be afraid that it will melt the yarn.

Wow, I've never made a shawl but I am really tempted to make that one! I love it! It's made with Fingering yarn? Might take a while to make.

That's really pretty. What have you made with that stitch?

Hi, Welcome! I'm in Arizona.

Men might think, they know how to change a tire, but this woman shows them the easy way to fix a flat. https://biggeekdad.com/2017/02/woman-fixes-flat/


that was so funny! Thanks.

It reminded me of when my brother tried to teach me how to fix a flat tire. I went to my parents house with my new car and my brother took me outside to teach me how to fix a tire. My dad was just getting home from work. He saw me trying to change my tire while my brother looked on and he was appalled. He yelled at my brother and proceeded to change the tire himself. We thought it was so funny. I never did learn to change a tire!

Wow, you made all those socks in three weeks! You just made me go into my project bag to finish my socks!

I've copied some hats from the Kit Kat hat in Ravelry, but I didn't copy the cable one, so I'll go back and look again.
Thanks for all your help.



I couldn't find a nice simple cable hat on Ravelry or anywhere else. That is why I made the one I showed here. I saw a cabled one made with the Fisherman's rib on YouTube. While it looked good, it made up a hat that felt too thick not to mention that it was a little more time consuming than the hat I made. I find that Fisherman's rib and Brioche knitting is pretty but it is a little harder to correct mistakes. Also, if you want to knit something fast that uses the least amount of yarn and still looks good, I wouldn't use either of those methods.
