Peacock Tea Cozy crochet
I am gifting this to my niece who collects peacock items. There is no pattern. I did use Prince the Peacock by Sara Katherine for the eyes of the feathers, wings, head (modified quite a bit) and head feathers. The rest is just fiddling until it worked. I have never had a tea cozy and I did not care for not being able to access the pot, so I have started making them with the top able to come off. I also like having the hot pad for the pot to sit on. Stay tuned to KP for my next cozy (I made three in all). Not sure I will get it posted today.

Knitting with circular needles
I started a project yesterday on 5.5 mm circular needles. There are 352 stitches. By row 3 it looked off like it was twisted. Has anyone done the first 3 or 4 rows and then joined in the round. I read that somewhere. I think it would be beneficial to me for this project but wondered if it would work. I know I would have to make sure I purl the row if it said knit etc. I should have mentioned I am making an adult sleeved poncho and you start at the bottom.

Knitting/Crocheting for a good cause: The Carolina Waterfowl Rescue Group
I brought up the subject of types of yarn that are safe and I see that another poster started a topic about yarn not being for birds. I contacted the Carolina Waterfowl Rescue Group and this is her reply:

HI Casey,
I understand you concern for the knitted nest. Please know they take great care in the use of these so baby birds are not harmed. They line them so they cannot get stuck or eat the threads.
Again Thank you for your concern.

So we can make some nests and help these people out which is great news.

Help - machine knit cap pattern
I’ve been told that no question is stupid, but this one might qualify. Nonetheless, here goes. I have not done any machine knitting in a long time, but I thought I remembered knitting a beanie in the round on the Brother machine with ribber. However, I cannot find a pattern. They all have a seam either in the back, front or side. Finally my question. Is it possible to machine knit caps, eternity scarves, etc. without a seam? Thanks

Ghoulish knitting intructions, help needed to locate please.
Back around October, an amusing cartoon explanation of the knit stitch was posted. I have been searching for this to forward on to my niece who has started to teach her daughters to knit.
The directions were
1, Stab it
2, Strangle it
3, Scoop out its guts
4, Chuck it off the cliff

Does anyone remember this? I have tried searching using key words Ghoul, Halloween, Knit jokes but not found it yet.
