If you’re interested in doing crochet, this is one that I did a while ago. The colors aren’t real peacock-y, but I thought that deeper colors might not show the design as well.

I have done that with the thread; it's just that with a lace pattern doing a lot of yo, ssk2tog, etc., the thread tends to get tangled in the stitches. Also, because the thread is so small, when I rip back I have a hard time picking up the stitches. A good technique....just one that I have difficulty maneuvering with lace. I thought I read that someone actually used the cable as the lifeline, but maybe I misread it.

The only way that I think you can use the spare cable as the lifeline is to go back after you’ve finished the row and use the interchangeable needle and attached cable to pick up the stitches in that row instead of using a regular sewing type of needle. However, I know this is exactly what you’re looking to avoid so that’s not the answer. Are you sure that you’re not remembering using a cable needle for a provisional cast on instead of using a cable needle for a lifeline?

I’m not sure that I exactly understand what you’re doing or how you’re getting lost. However, I usually just take an interchangeable needle, thread a thinner piece of yarn through the little hole that you use to tighten the tip to the cable then knit that row as usual. When I get to the end of the row, I pull the thinner piece of yarn out from the hole in the interchangeable tip and, voilà, the thinner piece of yarn is now correctly going through the entire row of stitches that I just knit. It’s really difficult to put into words, but it’s very easy to do. Hope this helps rather than confuses.

There’s a super adorable little girl who has started coming with her mom and grandma to my knitting group. Wanted to make up something real quick and easy during one of our meetings so that I could give her something to play with. It’s nothing elaborate. I just wanted her to know how much we love having her be part of the group. It’s all the more special because she “helped” me make it.

I love everything about it — politics included.

I love it. I’ve been using it for about seven years. Very easy to learn. I taught myself just by using YouTube videos. Start by learning how to purl first. Surprisingly, that is the easier stitch to learn. Once you get that, the knit stitch will be easy for you also.

I don’t have arthritis but I am able to knit for hours at a time with no stress on my fingers, wrists, arms or elbows.

I don’t use the pin. I just wrap the yarn around the back of my neck.

Good luck!

OMG. Cutest thing I’ve seen in a while. Brought a smile to my face.

Since we shared our new No Trump policy we have received an overwhelming amount of feedback, encouragement, love, and expressions of solidarity, and we are truly grateful. Many of you have asked us about making donations to Ravelry. Thank you so much for thinking of this, but the best way to support us is by supporting Ravelry designers, dyers, advertisers, and shops, particularly those run by people who are black, indigenous, people of color, members of the LGBTQ+ community, disabled crafters, those who belong to otherwise marginalized communities, and those who are speaking out on justice and equality issues to effect change. If you are specifically moved to donate, rather than making a donation to us we would like to suggest contributing to RAICES Texas, or finding an organization local to you that is doing anti-racism work or meeting the needs of the LGBTQ+ members of your community or other marginalized groups.


New Features and Policies
For over 10 years, we've had a hate speech policy on Ravelry, and our No Trump Support policy is an extension of that. Our definition of hate speech is as follows: Hate Speech and Hateful Imagery Words, phrases, or images deemed by Ravelry's owners to express, either deliberately or unknowingly, hatred or contempt towards a group of people, based on areas such as their ethnic, cultural, religious or sexual identity, gender, socio-economic class, or with reference to physical health or mental health, are not allowed.

Everyone on Ravelry's staff is committed to continually improving our site and making our community safer. We all realize this is an ongoing process and we have work to do.

In January, we created all new tools to make sure that we 1) can easily organize and handle the things that are reported to us and 2) notice repeat offenders and take action. We previously managed all of that with email, and this is a big improvement, but not enough. We have now decided to stop hosting groups with moderators who harbor or disregard users who repeatedly violate our community guidelines. We are starting by closing existing groups that have historically had repeat violations of those guidelines.

If you see a profile, pattern, or forum post that violates our guidelines, you can anonymously flag it to report it to Ravelry staff. We will continue improving our reporting features and our behind-the-scenes systems for handling problems.

Some Ravelers have shared with us that marginalized people felt unsafe because groups with a history of hate speech violations were allowed to remain on the site. To you, we would like to say that we're sorry, and you will see us continue to improve Ravelry's safety.

Moving Forward Together
This year, the greater fiber community has been having long-overdue conversations about diversity, racism, homophobia, size inclusion, disability awareness, and equity.

We want to recognize - and join in on - the praise we've seen for the BIPOC, LGBTQ+, disabled, and body-positive members of Ravelry who have been speaking out and making a positive difference. We are grateful for your labor, knowledge, willingness to share your lived experiences, and courage to demand changes to our site, the fiber community's culture, and the world at large. Please know that we appreciate and thank you for your work!

We would be grateful if all Ravelers would join us in making our community more safe, just, and fun; especially if you identify as an ally, please help make our community safer for our fellow Ravelers who are part of marginalized groups. Above all else, please continue to enjoy Ravelry, connect with other Ravelers, and celebrate your love of yarn! We have so many great things planned for our future and we're excited to share them with you.

In that case, no religious topics, requests for prayers, recipes, animal welfare, photos of cute animals, jokes, health advice etc., etc. You have access to KP and Ravelry free; they are both private companies, so, unless you own them, and they are not breaking any laws, you don't have the right to dictate. Moreover, the irony is, those people like you on here posting about this are actually making big money for those companies because the hundreds of pages are generating income through ad revenue on each page. The data tells them that including politics is a good business decision.

Had my cataracts dine in April. What a difference!!!! I wish they could do for all my body parts what they did for my eyes.
