Parchment paper instead of wax paper...
I experimented on my new 35 cm bamboo needles to make them a bit more slick and had no wax paper to rub them so I tried with parchment paper and it works wonders, thought I'd share the info.

Super cool yarn
Hi all. I just got a new yarn yesterday. It's different colors and textures all in one. I started knitting it up in all knit stitch using super chunky needles. Just doing a simple scarf with this one. I can't wait to see how it ends up. Woohoo 😀😀😀

Rudolph hat and mittens k
Ive been making so many knitting requests lately , not that I'm complaining as its more money to donate to charity , but it was nice to get back to knitting something I choose to do ,and fun to get started on some fun winter knits , the Rudolph chart I used came from a drops pattern for a sweater , I first used it a couple of years ago on a christmas pillow and now I've used it on this little hat and mittens set, had a job trying to remember how I did the noses but I'm pleased with how they worked out , find it funny how some of the rudolphs look completely different from each other , that one on the mitten looks like Oscar the grouch😄

Warning re: Red Heart Yarn
I made an afghan in the Crochet Mesh Stitch for my dad for his b’day in Nov. he’ll be 93 so I wanted it to be ready for that day. It took me months to do. I’m an expert knitter & crocheter, 50+yrs so my gage is always consistent. I started with a chain of 188 & did 3 rows repeated once of Royal Blue, Delft Blue & Light Blue of 240 rows total. My starting width was 37” & ended up with 34”. That a difference of 3 whole inches. The weight on the paper band claims that all their yarn is 7 oz/198 g. There is a different feel between all 3 colors. I worked hard in order to get this afghan done because my dad is not in good health & lives in a nursing home so I figured that it would cheer him up. A lady in my Monday morning group that meets together was having a similar problem, she had to rip her afghan apart because she probably thought it was her fault but I will tell her when I see her tomorrow that it’s her yarn & I will let the whole group know in case they had a similar experience. I wrote to the company & sent these photos to them plus others & I’m waiting to hear from them. I hope this helps anyone who is a Red Heart lover as I was. The one photo is a comparison of the 3 different yarns I used. I will keep you all posted as to the outcome.
