I’ve bought yarn from Hobbii in Denmark and Ice Yarns in Turkey. Does the website have a Trustpilot review?

I have knitted and crocheted with several colors and done this numerous times over the years. On one row, you are picking the colors up UNDER the color you finished using. On row 2, pick up the color on TOP of the color you are finishing with. Changing direction of the strands each row should help to keep the colors in order. Occasionally, you may still have to untangle them if you don't maintain the switching sequence for each row. Hope this works for you.

I’m having trouble picturing that. I thought that tangling was inevitable, especially with knitting and Tunisian crochet, where you have to cross the colors to avoid a hole.

The small cones for a serger sewing machine retail at around $7 a piece, and you need at least 3 of them at a time. Overlock seams use a lot of thread. I have used leftovers from sewing for socks, but the other fibers wear out around the wooly nylon, and I’m not sure it adds to the life of the sock, but at that price, who cares?

If you turn the project in opposite directions, you can get through as many as 4 rows before untangling the bobbins, but you do have to regularly untangle them. I made a blanket that had as many as 23 different balls and bobbins in a row.

Yes, it is "no dye lot" but the day/time the skein is dyed can differ substantially or can just barely able to see difference but it is noticeable when knitted or crocheted.

Always get the same lot number or you will not be assured that the colors are the same.

"No dye lot" is a fallacy.

I guess I just don’t have the visual acuity to notice because I’ve purchased additional skeins, and used them in the same project, and could not see any difference.

The video shows traveling loop, which works on flexible needles. I’ve never tried it on needles shorter than 24” myself, and you use the traveling loop right from the start, for a hat. With 16” circulars, I switch to dpn’s.

This won't be exact but I'm currently doing 12 inch knitted squares from Herrschners worsted 8 which is very similar to rhss. I'm getting 7 blocks per skien with a little left over. So just over an ounce a block.

Worsted 8 comes in 8 oz. skeins. Red Heart Super Saver is down to 7 ounces per skein.

Red Heart Super Saver is no dye lot, in case you under order. I always over order, and use the excess on the next project.

If you make an afghan 60" by 72", the couple can lay under it together, watching tv on a couch.

I have Hiya Hiya stainless steel dpn’s. If you have good tension, the stitches won’t fall off, and I’ve never broken one, and I knit socks using size 0000 needles. Once.

I bought the full interchangeable set on Amazon, where I get free shipping.

In the past, I’ve used generic foot measurements that relate to the recipient’s shoe size.

If you use mattress stitch, the yarn won’t be visible, so you can use any color from what you have left.
