[quote=ljf]I have a mix of different wooden needles. Everything from bamboo, rosewood, birch, ebony, palm.
My favorite at the moment are the Lykke brand
I like the warm feeling of the wooden needles and have never had any split or become ragged at the tips.[/quote

My hubby gifted me a set of Lykke intechangeable wooden needles at Christmas. I just used them for the first time and really like them.

you can run into this problem with hand dyed yarns, so I was taught to alternate the skeins every few rows so that any color irregularities are not noticeable. Since you seem to be running into this same problem with the Bernat Blanket yarn, maybe this technique would work for you. I would also contact Bernat yarns to let them know of this problem.

Yes. Knit some squares and block/flatten them.
Using a marker, trace the pattern pieces onto the yarn. Do not cut yet.
Machine stitch around the pattern pieces just inside the marker line.
Then cut them out and sew them up just like they were cloth -- CAREFULLY.
The first time I did this, I felt like I was "cheating". But the knit police never showed up, so it was okay.

I wonder if you could knit following the shape of the pattern pieces, then machine sew them together using the stretch stitch or a slight zigzag stitch.

He looks a lot like my beagle Rufus when he was younger. Rufus is now a very senior beagle and the only thing that will get him off my couch is food being put into his bowl.

There looks like there are several rows of the main color before repeating the chart again

No, it is different from double-knitting, makes only a single layer of fabric but thicker and cushier and appears to be std SS on both sides. All rows are worked in multiples of 2, and are one line of instructions: K1, sl 1 PW wyif, repeat to end, turn and repeat on all rows.”

I do believe that is called Eye of Partridge stitch and is done a lot on heel flaps of socks. I’ve never seen any directions on how to do it in the round, but will be watching to see if anyone else may figure this out.

Thanks all for your sage advice. I will have a break (no pun intended), ad pick it up again when I'm healed.
Happy knitting

You can use this time to organize your stash and find more patterns for later knitting. May I also suggest, that when the cast comes off that you don’t return to your project right away as your muscles will have become weak and that could effect your gauge, so knit a few dishcloths or do another swatch for your project until your strength and normal gauge return.

The top ones look to me like blocking pins or lace making pins. The bottom maybe pen inserts for a cutting machine like the Cricut.

It could be used as a lap blanket for someone sitting in a wheelchair or recliner

I wear my hand knitted socks with my regular shoes. I knit using sock yarn and size 00 needles. For Christmas 2019 I knit my youngest son a pair of boot socks using DK weight yarn and he says they fit well in his boots.

I store the majority of my patterns on my IPad in IBooks. When I open a pattern I have the ability to make short notes , enlarge the pattern font, and put a high lighted box over the row I am working on. When I finish the row I move the high lighted box up to the next row and put a check mark by the completed row.

I was quite shocked when I opened a private message to find something that should have been unsaid. She was sarcastic and critical - guess it's easy to be mean when you are unidentified.

I rec'd many encouraging and helpful messages from well-meaning knitters. I guess I won't be asking for advice from now on.


I have found that when some know that their identity is masked, that it is a license for them to take all restraints off what they say. This is not just a problem here on KP but is widespread across all media platforms. As others have voiced, block that screenname so that you are not bothered by them. Continue to ask and answer questions here as that is the backbone for this forum, to stop doing so gives power to the nasties who wish to create discord amongst us.

We receive this spam calls all the time. Especially CARD SERVICES. Nothing seems to deter these callers. Hubby has now taken t talking over them. Telling them that he is going to waste their time and cause their bottom line (their money) to plummet. He tells them that if he can keep them on the phone they cannot bother others. It is amazing how log these people will keep talking.

How about a peach. Gal at my knitalong group had a variegated skein of colors almost the same as yours and it coordinated nicely with a peach shade which made the colors in the darker variegated skein pop.

I agree with the others who say don’t finish it,but block it on the needles. My thoughts are to mount it with the needles and excess yarn into a shadow box along with a picture of your foster mom. Include a note on how she taught you to knit and display it proudly.
