Using scrubby yarn
when i am using red heart scrubby yarn (which is 100% polyester) to make exfoliating wash cloths, i like to add a cotton yarn as well.

i use size 10 knitting needles, and double the scrubby yarn. i cast on 30-40 stitches depending on my mood, and i use garter stitch throughout. then i tie on a cotton yarn (usually a peaches and cream yarn) and knit the first row with all 3 strands. i leave the cotton yarn dangling and knit two rows in scrubby yarn. for the next row, i pick up the cotton yarn and knit 1 row with all 3 strands. i continue that way - knitting two rows with scrubby yarn and knitting 1 row with all three - until the cloth is the size i want.

the cotton yarn is absorbent, so it will hold more water than the polyester alone. i have found that my cloth will really hold wonderful suds that way. the cotton strand softens the cloth only a bit. my skin comes out so smooth and soft. :)

Help with yoke
Have spent hours trying to get the yoke altogether any help would be greatly appreciated, finished all the sections of a baby matinee jacket and find getting them together on the needle a problem, don't know if it is because of all the yarn ends and when joining the sections those stitches appear to be loose after giving them a pull with the first stitch, any help would be appreciated, thanks everyone

A Jumper (Sweater) for my friend.
My friend saw a photo of me wearing a cabled jumper, and she said "One of these days I am going to buy some wool, and you can make me one the same, as I just love cables" I decided, as it is her birthday in early January, that I would knit one for her, for her birthday, and here it is.
It is a pale lilac colour

This is the book, from where the pattern came from

Lengthening underarm of sweater
So started a raglan cropped sweater over a year and a half ago. Finished to where divided for sleeves and sleeves are on waste yarn while body is being knitted. The sleeve depth was fine thrn, but unfortunately i have gained weight and now the armhole depth is too short and the sleeves at underarm will be too tight.
The sweater body only needs a few more inches.
My question is whether there is a way to knit in an underarm gusset to lengthen the armscye so it wont be too tight? Or do i need to frog back and lengthen the armsceye?
Or would best advice be to just rip and start over?
Thanks for any and all advice.
