I prefer Knit Pics Cotlin. It is a mix of cotton and linen. Very soft and nice to work with.

I had been using circs for many years to knit flat (mostly baby blankets) before I ever used them to knit in the round. I really prefer the circs for many reasons, not the least of which is I never have to worry about loosing one of the needles.

Yep, that's me too. Why hem jeans when you can roll them up. And, they might shrink . . . (in my dreams)

I use the magic knot because it makes a very small knot, but I don't trim the ends too close. When I get to the knot, I knit the ends into the stitches. Depending on the yarn, this will usually be barely noticeable, but it doesn't work with all yarns.

Fantastic idea and very well done. It might be pretty filled with plastic or glass Easter eggs.

Beautiful, and I love the color. So jealous that you already have a Christmas present done. Guess I need to get started . . . maybe tomorrow (lol).

I like it best with no embellishment. The sweater is beautiful on it's own.

Beautiful, and very well done! Love this shawl in white.

If you use a life line before each lace row, you will be able to rip the lace back to the lifeline without needing to tink back. I find tinking lace knitting next to impossible.

Very nice and well done. Love the color.

Yep, that's what I do, too. Louder counting works every time.

I would recommend Knit Pics CotLin. It is a cotton and linen blend. My cousin's wife is expecting a baby in August, and I am planning to use Cotlin to make a baby blanket.

Learned the value of swatching the hard way. There are many good reasons to swatch in addition to checking for gauge, such as seeing how the yarn will drape and checking for stitch definition. Now I always swatch, even if gauge is not important for the pattern.

Could you use washcloth patterns to make the squares? Some patterns I have seen have hearts, angels, and crosses. I would probably suggest to whip stitch the squares together.
