Simple Sweater by Joji Locatelli
A paid pattern.
I used Remix and love it! This sweater is XS, made for my oldest daughter for Christmas this year. I made the back tail a little longer. I used size 4 and 6, but used 3 for the cuff. I really enjoyed this knit.
It’s not blocked yet- just alittle is needed on the bottom. I would make this again!

Stand for yarn winder and swift
When I was at the KW Yarn Fair last week, there were individuals winding skeins for donations.  I was wondering where they got the stands for their winders and swifts. Does anyone know where they may be purchased?

If you've crocheted a 10-stitch blanket ... I have a question
I have a lot of small balls and want to experiment with a 10-stitch crochet blanket: I want to use 5 or 6 stitches instead of 10. Was wondering if it matters if I have an even or odd number of stitches? Concerned about the corners.
With my small color amounts, I want to get longer sections of color. Any advice? Thanks for your expertise.

making Christmas gifts
I went over to visit my oldest son and girlfriend today. They asked if I will knit some things for them to give as Christmas gifts. They gave me money today to replace yarn and buy patterns, etc., more than generous. They want their gifts to be keepsakes; that's how they refer to my knitting. I am so happy, I can't stop smiling. We decided on one orca, which is finished already, Odd Job Man by Alan Dart, two Skiing Steffi dolls, and Juggle Birdies with nest and eggs. I have all kinds of time to knit these projects. I am so looking forward to it. I printed the patterns tonight. I ordered the book that has the Steffi doll in it and it shipped today so it shouldn't be too long getting here. This is so cool. They thanked me all over the place and I feel I should be thanking them as well. Awesome.

Using a needle size guage
I inherited a bunch of circular knitting needles and crochet hooks .... unmarked.
I also received three gauges ... two plastic and one metal.
I am not sure how to read it .... when I put a knitting needle into the hole, do I read the hole where only the tapered end fits in butnot the shank? Or the first hole that the entire needle fits? Should it fit the hole snugly or have 'wiggle' room?
How do crochet hooks fit in? I tried a known K hook but could only fit it in the P hole .....

Puzzle pieces knitting pattern
I am having a hard time today
Cast on 6 stitches
Knit 4
Knit 1

No matter what I do and obviously I am doing something wrong, I do not come out with 8 stitches at the end as it says I should.
Has anybody made this pattern? I would really appreciate guidance on this.

Thank you

what is your oldest UFO?
Mine is a granny square baby blanket that I started in the early 1970s with yarn bought at Sears and Roebuck. They are still just in squares waiting to be sewn together.

Original Cowl / Neckwarmer Design?
Hi there, all!

Here's the latest entry in my cowl obsession. I believe that I may have developed a new design? I've never seen a pattern shaped like mine.

In any case here's a couple of pics. (the one of me wearing it is most accurate, colorwise)

I think it looks a little bit like a fun interpretation of a snake ...
