I am starting Marianna Melâs all in one top. The first set of directions say to knit rib for 6 rows and to make a buttonhole in the 3rd row. For those that have made this top where did you make the button hole?
Hi all - I’ve been a member of this group for quite some time and really enjoy seeing all the very talented knitters and crocheters. I love to crochet and have been doing so for 40 years now. Had a quick question... I see everyone talking about Paradise Yarns and checked it out - just curious if everyone from the US is paying $50’ish for shipping?? That’s what came up when I selected very basic shipping for not a lot of bargain yarn. Maybe I’m doing something wrong? I realize the company is in Turkey... but for that kind of shipping, it’s not much of a bargain, huh? What are your experiences?

Old Pineapple pattern doily my mother made C)
A few weeks ago I posted what I thought was the pineapple pattern doily and was corrected as I was quite wrong. I found this one recently and "revived" it in a Napisan soak overnight as it is many years old and thankfully some stains have come out. My mother died on 21/8/96...I am feeling quite sad this week ..for various reasons..but thought and hope of course that I have the right pattern now to show you . Mum was born in 1908 and had a long life.. but I miss her so much even now. Thanks for looking at her exquisite work now.
The pineapple crocheted doily
The wheat sheaf pattern
I am a long time knitter, but new to this site. I am so enjoying reading everything and have learned so much. Thank you! I knit many scarves and baby blankets which I usually block. Pins do not always work so I am thinking of getting the wires. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what kind I buy? Or any hints on using wires? TIA
HiyaHiya needle tips with Chiaogoo Cables
I am new to KP, and enjoy reading all the advice and admire how everyone is so helpful. I have been knitting for many years nothing fancy just simple knitting. Now that I have rediscovered the soothing quality of knitting I find that straight needles get heavy as my knitting grows. Ok no problem I tried circular needles to knit with, problem solved. After watching many reviews I invested in interchangeable sets both Hiya Hiya and Chiaogoo. I keep returning to the the Hiya hiya needles but do like the Chiaogoo cables.
After visiting you tube and watching reviews of both I noticed in the comments section that you can use the HiyaHiya needle tips with the Chiaogoo cables it is a matter of adaptors. Annoyingly the type of adaptor is never mentioned. Is this possible? Does anyone here combine the two and if so how? Thank you for any help provided.
convertible mitts - flip top dilemma
I am about to start the flip top for convertible mitts, but have a question? Is it preferable to knit the top separately, and attach once complete? Or, pick up stitches on the back, cast on extra stitches, and complete the top. If casting on extra stitches for the second option, which cast on method is recommended?
Leaf lace scarf
Hi there fellow knitters! I bought some beautiful wool/bamboo in a mossy green color. I decided to knit it wider to make it a shawl instead. Itâs knit in 2 halves then kitchener stitched together. The middle is stockinette stitch. I donât want it to curl too much there & be thinner than the leaf stitch ends. Iâm using a size 9 circular & thought if I switched to a size 11 for the stockinette portion that this would solve that issue. What do yâall think?

How do you attach the fur pompoms to your hats? I recently put one of these pompoms on a hat I made for my niece and I'm pretty sure it's going to fall off. The pompom had a small elastic loop on it, but I couldn't figure out the best way to attach.
