Hello from southwestern Washington state, just west of what is left of Mount St Helens.

I too start my day with KP and a coffee. If the day will be busy, I get up early to at least read the digest.

I have learned so much in the last 2 1/2 years. I never dreamed that I would ever be able to knit in the round, do cables, do lace, knit a sweater and so much more. I can now even knit a Dee O'Keefe shawl that gets oodles of comments. Thank you KPers.

How could anyone say that is not a work of art.

I have completed a few Flax sweaters for little people. When putting the sleeve stitches back onto the needles, I usually pick up 2-4 more stitches, in the underarm area, than called for in the pattern. That will help close up those holes that seem to always crop up. Within a round or two I have decreased back to the number of stitches call for.

I've used several types of Ice yarns, but none washable. The laundry instructions are on each skein's label/band in symbols. I had to Google the meaning of them.
Also, the colorway isn't included on those bands, but on the wrapper of each package of them.

This may be old hat for many of you, but new to me.

I'm reading "Knitting Without Tears" by Elizabeth Zimmerman. At the end of Chapter 2 she added a P.P.S., quote "Some directions give you vertical row gauge as well as the horizontal stich gauge. I have yet to find a good use for a vertical row gauge, since vertical measurements are easier to handle in inches."

I have knitted many swatches, never achieving horizontal AND vertical gauge for a specific project. She has set me free! Hope it helps others.

If only the meat grinder would work that way. (sigh)

Happy Birthday Dee! Nice to know you will have a lovely day.

I have tried to do justice to your patterns; Thurmont, Lilyanna, and Quaking Aspen is now ready for blocking. But my very favorite, and 'go-to' shawl is Caine.
I always get excited when you announce a new pattern.

Best regards, Linda

I own a few fixed circular ChiaoGoo that have that type of bend. As far as I know there are only 4" and 5" interchangeable sets and neither set have the bends in your picture. If you want a 16" circular for hats, you will have to use the 4" set. With ChiaoGoo there is no other option, unless you use dpn's or magic loop.

I think the above is also true for other brands of interchangeables.

Most important lesson is 'don't limit yourself'.
I was very stubborn, didn't want to learn to knit on circulars. Now that is all I use.
Was afraid to fail with several techniques...cables and other 'fancy' stitches. Now I do them successfully.
Next to conquer is reading charts. They confuse me. Hoping to use them for at least one item in the next couple of months.

I too love to use Amazon and have Prime membership. One thing to consider is getting their Amazon/Chase credit card. With it you earn "points" that are used to purchase goods on their website. Last year was our first year using it and it more than paid for our annual Prime membership.

How clever are you? I'll be trying that in the very near future. Thanx.

Hi Judy, I live just down I-5 from you, so maybe we have the same kind of ants...they go for sweet things, NOT greasy things.

I use a solution of 3 tablespoons of olive oil, and a squirt of Dawn in a gallon of water. I use a spray bottle and aim the spray toward their entry spots, as well as everywhere I see them. I get them, for the most part, in the Spring, and every hot days.

This solution works every well. They die immediately and don't come back for 10-14 days, once you can zone in to where they are entering your home. I spray occasionally for preventive maintenance.

Sure hope this helps you.
