Knitting in Tudor England
I know there are hundreds, (thousands even?) of passionate knitters here, but do we have any really knowledgeable historians of knitting?

There was fantastic fine knitting in the Scottish Islands for centuries, and we do have evidence for Victorian times in paintings and the census lists. But do we evidence of knitting in Tudor England?

Bone or metal pins probably, for caps and hose perhaps? 4 ply maybe?

I would be grateful for any information provided.

Basic Number Theory in Knitting
As a math teacher, I have been wondering why some patterns tell you to cast on an 'uneven' number of stitches instead of simply saying 'odd'. Is this a common term in other countries (I am in the States) as we say Math and other countries say Maths?
And why say 'cast on a multiple of 2'? That's just an even number. A 'multiple of 2+1' is an odd number.
I do understand why you need to specify a 'multiple of 4' as not every even number is divisible by 4 or a multiple of 3 as those can be even or odd ....
I was just curious.

Stashbusting
My stash is getting a bit out of control and to add to that I tend to hoard items that I knit or crochet, this house is groaning with the amount of craft stuff I have. I did put a few things up for sale this week but the mittens are going to Dublin with me for the wee ones in the family.

Help regarding a diagram
I have followed this pattern and have been able to successfully make it till Row 9 but I am having problems continuing further.
In Row 9 there are in total (3+3+3+4+3+3+3) 22 stitches
And in row 10 I have to make 9 single sc and 3 sc together and then 8 single sc which means total 18 stitches.
So in Row 9 - 22 stitches
In Row 10 - 18 stitches

Thus, 4 stitches are extra. I do not know where I am going wrong. I would be glad if anyone can help.

Toy Scarf Problem
I am knitting a toy called Mr. Bun and his scarf is small that will go around his neck. The pattern itself calls for a size 5 needle. Last night I tried 10 times + and cannot get through a couple stitches. Then tonight I tried 5 more times and still no luck. It is the first row after the cast on. I tried a larger size needle and I give up. If I can get that 1st row going I will be ok.

Cast on 5 sts

Row 1: k1,kfb, k2tog, slip the last st purlwise with yarn art the front of work (5 sts)

Row 2: k to last st, sl the last purlwise with yarn in front of work. (5 sts)

There are only two rows to be repeated 78 times

Row one I can of course do the k1 but the kfb is starting to get tighter on my needle. Trying to get to next st of k2tog forget it. Both those sts are so tight.

I have loosened my tension specifically and even went to a size 6 needle and I cannot get the scarf going. I am also a thrower and have tried other ways to cast on but my fingers don't co-operate. I am attaching a picture of him. Any help is so appreciated. Thank you (you may have to enlarge his picture)

Crochet dolls
Did anyone else see the pretty crocheted dolls that a viewer who was a guest today on The Talk brought for each of the cohosts? The dolls were created to resemble the ladies of The Talk. She did an excellent job.
