How to wash baby blanket
Just finished Baby Cuddly Blanket for my new great granddaughter. Pleased at how well it turned out. Used Plymouth Encore Chunky (75% acrylic, 25% wool) label says machine wash gentle & tumble dry low.
Question: Has anyone done this? Does it shrink? Should I just wash & block it myself. All suggestions welcome as I am new to knitting with washable yarns.

Looking for a stitch pattern!
Oooh boy...down to the wire. I asked my son to find a picture of the mittens that he'd like me to make for him. So he sends me a picture that I can kind of see the stitch pattern but the Etsy shop is closed and I can't ask the shop owner about it, nor can I do a Google image search probably because the picture is on an Etsy site.

Does anyone have a good guess what this stitch pattern might be?

Looking for a post about a Russian baby bonnet (K)
Sorry to be asking, I saw a post a few days ago, another member was asking for a translation. No I didn't comment on it (slap wrist) No I didn't book mark it (slap other wrist).
It was a cute bonnet in garter st with a cable going from one side to the other, ring any bells?

DK vs Worsted
This may have been asked before but what is your preference DK or Worsted and why?
Which do you use more and for what type of projects?

For instance, I tend to find myself using the DK for lapghans and or afghans lately. The slightly lighter weight is more manageable for me as the project gets larger and thereby heavier.

One sleeve left to go - then how to attach?
Hello! I posted recently about a sweater I'm knitting for my mother. I don't have a pattern and I've not done a sweater before. So far it's going well, but I have one thing I can't figure out because everyone on youtube keeps saying "follow your pattern" - how many stitches / inches should be kept on hold for the underarm? I have an eight-stitch cable that is acting as the center of the bottom of the sleeve and the underarm portion, but eight stitches doesn't seem like enough for this under area. Is there a general specification I can follow for how many inches should be kept aside?

Thank you so much for any thought and help!

(I'm knitting with 5.5 mm needles with Lion Brand Hearland Joshua Tree - which is labelled as "Medium 4" for weight / 251 yards for 142 grams. My 8-stitch cable is 1.0 inches at the tightest part and 1.6 inches at the loosest, but it's surrounded by Irish Moss which is looser, which is why I was looking for an inches estimate rather than a stitches estimate.)

Christmas Socks
Finished all the planned Christmas projects so decided to knit a pair of Christmas sock for me! Red is Loops & Threads Woolike and white is Vanna's Glamour that has a silver sparkle running through it. No pattern, just a combination of whatever came to mind. Don't understand why pic is sideways as it was taken in the upright position.
