I love it too. I make lots and lots of hats, so ML comes in real handy to do the crown of each.
A year or so ago, a KPer stated in a post that you can knit almost anything with 40" circulars, of the required size. I took her advice to heart and have found this to be very true. I know there are better solutions at times, but if I was on a very tight budget, that's the way I would go.
Happy knitting and Merry Christmas.
Welcome from southwestern Washington state, just west of what is left of Mount St Helens.
Just curious... is it heavy when you use it?
I just weighed it on my kitchen scales. It is 2 lbs. During each steaming I did change hands, but mostly to reach areas of the shawl easier.
Did the info in your package state the brand name or are they marked with a brand? If not, you would need to contact Darn Good Yarn for that. Then you could Google.
I agree! Love the magical change of the fabric.
But recently I received a parcel of yarn that is 70% acrylic, 30% wool. Will it be beneficial to wet block a shawl from this yarn, or should I steam block it?
Combining equal parts BBQ sauce and grape jelly makes a delicious and fast sweet & sour dipping sauce.
My husband received 3 alerts. My mother's phone went off continually until she turned off. She took it to her t-mobile office and the tech fixed it. He mentioned that he had been fixing one after the other since the alert started.
I have been wondering about this exact issue for quite awhile. A friend told me to just machine wash it.
Since I really want to use very old stash from my beginner days, just last week I knit a 5x5 swatch of RH. It was, as usual, scratchy to the touch.
Threw it in with my regular wash load of t-shirts, undies, socks, etc. Used usual detergent and regular cold water cycle.
Threw it in with same load into dryer on medium heat.
To my great surprise it came out so soft, just lovely. I will no longer hesitate to use it.
If only a 3D printer could make a knitable skein of yarn. (sigh)
I have been working with computers since 1980. I could even do a little programming back in the day. Every morning is a Knitting Paradise/Ravelry fest, with coffee of course. So today I "discovered", by accident, that if you click on a picture it will enlarge. Why on earth haven't I noticed this before?
Well there you go. Hope this helps someone else.
Thanks for giving hope to others with your story. Bless you.

Hope this helps you.
I can only hope many KPers are paying attention to this information and will pass it on to their loved ones. Bless you pinkwitch for posting this.
I was 32 and a newlywed when ovarian cancer surprised me. It was hell getting rid of it, but this July was my 35th year of health after cancer. My favorite medical phrase is still "no evidence of recurrence". May never have to be yours.
