Does this have value?
I originally thought I could accumulate all I needed to knit 50 Izzy dolls to donate to my church in time for Christmas and set August 2018 as my deadline date; however, due to my inability to find suitable yarns that represent our many (flesh) shades of humanity, I had to reset my date to August 2019.

Pictures of the pretty little packs of really small skeins I see when I visit Michael's keep floating around in my imagination and prompt this question: Do you think a yarn company would be interested in having it pointed out that a pack of yarns representative of different shades of human flesh likely would be of great interest to crafters who knit and crochet dolls?

I think it would be a wonderful convenience to drive to a yarn store knowing they stock what I really need to branch out into another phase of our craft and I'd like packs that hold a half dozen shades of browns in addition to at least two flesh shades.

What say you?

Knitted cowl that everyone likes but no one would wear it
What do I do with this cowl that everyone says is pretty but no one wants it. Maybe I should donate it to a care facility for the texture. Don’t know. Some advice please ladies.

help please! brother kh800 mystery!
I am at the neckline forming stage of a sweater pattern from the Brother beginners collection. The instructions State to count 47 needles from the left and move them into A position (so they don't knit)-but they won't move that far b ack with the work still on it. Should I move the work onto a keeper needle, or can I put the needles into hold position with the same outcome as A position? Your advice is appreciated😊

conversion chart question regarding DMC colors to yarn colors
Is there a DMC conversion color chart to yarn colors out there? I don't do crosstitching so I have no clue. Tried the web but all it did was run me around in circles.

Penny and Patch present some challenges
This is Penny and her little brother Patch. The hats are my idea since i couldn't make their hair work out, not for the life of me. I enjoyed them and now I am on to some hats or something of the sort. More toys later on, I'm thinking. Maybe I'll go back to the Cuddlies.

Sweater
I am making the Louet Erin sweater which is done in the round from bottom up. 128 stitches on front and back each throughout. Have divided for sleeves and about to do neck. Pattern says knit 41 stitches, place center 35 on holder, join new yarn and work to end of row. This adds up to 127 stitches and no where in the pattern was I to decrease one anywhere. I don't think this makes a big difference in the overall but it bothers me. The directions for the front at this point use the same numbers so it must not be a typo. Should I just work on the 128 I have or should I decrease one in the middle of the center stitches when I pick them up again?
