I have the same interchangeable needles. I am not always the most patient, so i did not always use the key to tighten the join. I have found that is absolutely necessary. If the key is used they stay tightened and then my join is smooth. If you are using the key i would contact the company and see what they will do for you.

My grandma taught me how to knit and I caught on fairly quickly. I remember one of my first projects being a scarf. I was maybe about 8 or 9 years old when that happened. Then i hit high school age and i had a Home economics class and we did a knitting segment in there. I can remember being "the best" in the class, ----fastest, fewest mistakes, even stitch. That was all the encouragement i needed. By time i was out of high school i was making vests, baby blankets, baby onesies, etc, etc, etc. That was over 40 years ago. Now i know how to make my own sweater pattern, I design nearly all the baby blankets i make and while i am knitting on one project, I am dreaming about the next one. ------------I see many of you know how to crochet as well. That is a craft i learned how to do, but to this day it has never clicked with me. I know the basic stitches, I just don't know which stitch i am doing, and i have no idea how to read and understand a pattern
. It all seems so awkward to me-----I can knit so much faster! :)

I had an incident quite similar to this last summer. I got the blanket back after the gift recipient's 3 year old daughter had a "meeting with the blanket and a scissor". On my first look i thought, this is not repairable, but i simply started. Fortunately i had a little left over yarn to help in the repairs. It was an easier fix than i anticipated, it did not turn out perfect, but is certainly usable. I told her to save the blanket, it can become a cherished "evidence of toddlers." Give it a try, you have nothing to lose.

I got the same set last winter. I seldom use the long single point needles anymore and use these for most everything. Hope you like them as well as i do!!! So nice to be able to transport this small little pouch and have everything you need!

I made a grey blanket for a niece---per her request. A diff. niece saw it and wanted one like it for her baby coming several months later. Grey seems to be a requested color. New Mom's are shying away from the pastels. I made a baby blanket years back out of primary colors, per Mom's request---rather different, fun. (not too many primary colors available then---everything was in shades, not the true Red, Yellow, etc.) I like the idea of grey/yellow/white.

Thank you, but i have spent hours looking on revelry checking for shawls, capes, capelettes, ponchos etc. I really want to know if you think it would work to modify a top down sweater pattern.

Over 30 years ago I knit my daughter a capelet when she was 2 years old. After several moves i can no longer find that pattern. I have looked over Ravelry and Pinterest for days, and looked thru vintage patterns on the web. I can't find it. This capelet button downed the front and had a beautiful lace pattern on each side. I would like to knit a capelet like this for a very special 5 year old friend. So, I am wondering: If i use a top down raglan sweater pattern, but do not "take off the sleeves", would that work??? I think i could incorporate a lace pattern of choice on each side. It does not need to be the "exact thing", I would just like to make her a dressy little girl capelet. Will be using a number 2 weight yarn. Thanks.

I love driving up there. It is about a 2 hour ride from our place. Always come home with some unexpected treasure. :)

My Grandma showed me how to do the basic stitches, when i was maybe 10 or 12. Not much happened for a few years but then we knit in a 'home ec" class in High School and i took off. Mom took me to a dear aunt who taught me how to do the "fancier" stuff; how to cable, how to rescue dropped stitches, and how to do lace. She taught me how to read patterns, and then showed me the very basics of crochet to finish off when needed. Today its maybe 50 years since i learned the basics and i would love to know how many baby blankets i have made since then, how many sweaters, how many afghans etc. I can't imagine life without knitting needles in my hands. Sometime i wonder if our teachers ever realized what a difference they would make in young people's lives.

How about knitting a 2 color sweater, like one primarily pink with brown trim and the other primarily brown with pink trim???
