Knitting groups in the five cities area of central California, USA

is there anyone out there wanting to start an informal group?

G Carriage KG93 help

So I am new to machine knitting and now that I have figured out using the K carriage I thought I would try out the G carriage

I am using a Brother KH940 and the G carriage KG93

I am following the instructions for cast on but strangely the machine is skipping every seventh stitch when casting on. From what I have read it seems g-carriage can be very finicky and tend to drop stitches if all the needles are not perfect...but I just thought it was strange that it was every seventh stitch like it was doing a pattern..

any advice is greatly appreciated!

New spam alert
I am not sure if this is in the right place, but this is, I feel, a particularly dangerous spam. I have received one email and one text, supposedly from Bell saying they are refunding me some money. It isn't for large amounts. The first one I got was an email and it looked exactly like an etransfer from a bank. I was a bit suspicious, because I didn't know why Bell would refund me cash, when I owe money on my account. I didn't hit the link but copied and pasted it and it did still look like an etransfer from Bell until I went into Bell to see if I got the money and noticed that part of the link which on the real Bell was '.bell.' and on the phoney one it was .bel. This spam would have had my bank information because it takes you straight to your bank. Please if you get a text or email supposedly giving you a refund from a company, QUESTION IT AND DO NOT ACCEPT THE MONEY.

Grandma can you make me...
My 7yr. old Grandson plays basketball at school
and asked me if I could make him a basketball rug.

Of course I had to make one for each Grandchild.

There's a basketball, baseball, softball,
Ghostbuster ghost and Balloons from the movie Up.

Silver Birch Cardigan from Premier Yarns
I am a blind knitter with sixty years of knitting behind me. However, this happens to be my first project using self-striping yarn. I am using the yarn and color recommended in the pattern. When I made the second sleeve, I was told by a sighted friend that the sequence of color changes did not match those in the first sleeve. Must I begin by finding the place in the new skein which matches the beginning of the first sleeve or are such patterns as the Silver Birch Cardigan, which are made for self-striping yarn, based on asymmetrical color changes?
