I made this scarf for my mother several years ago. She passed away on New Year's Eve. While cleaning out the house, I found the scarf and would like to make another one. It's crochet, and uses crochet short rows. Does anyone recognize it?

I have Karbonz which are expensive needles. It's a size 1, 40" circular and I've tried hot water and hanging it with machine knitting weights. Nothing works. I will try the blow dryer and ironing board next.

I would like to join you. I'm a little late. A friend pointed me to your group. Are you still at Books a Million?

Hi Hazel: We really need to get together. I'll let you know when I can come to your group. Sorry to hear you were ill.

If you have a hank, wind the whole hank into a ball on your winder. Put your scale on the floor and put the newly wound cake/ball on the scale and weigh it. Pull the yarn from the outside and start to wind another ball on your winder. When the scale shows half of the original, stop winding. Now you have two center pull cakes of equal weight.

No luck. But I did purchase a few other issues.

I made an outfit from this magazine for my daughter who was born in October 1977. There were other patterns in the issue that I would like to have. If anyone has this magazine, I would like to purchase it.

I hope you will put the directions where we can find them. I could not do the little bag in your picture unless you give specific direction.
Thank you, the picture is elegant.

I did not post the picture of the soap bag. I was trying to give knitters a way to make a similar bag. This thread is quite old so perhaps the person who made the original post is not following this thread.

I can't find a pattern that is easy..can you help?

I made a soap bag last week at knit night at my local yarn shop. I used feltable wool in a sock weight. Size 5 circular needles. I cast on 30 st -- 15 on each needle using Judy's Magic Cast on. I knit until it fit my soap -- stretch it because you want it to fit snuggly. I closed using Kitchener stitch. My husband likes it because it doesn't slide off the soap dish in the shower. You have a clear slate with this so if you wanted to create a little lace pattern like the photo, you could do that. This is a great project to learn Judy's magic cast on and the kitchener stitch.

I knit, crochet, and am learning to tunisian crochet. You are right. There is a difference between tunisian crochet and knitting. The fabric you create with tunisian crochet, while beautiful, doesn't drape like knitted fabric. You CAN learn to knit, but it takes practice. It's worth it to spend more time learning how to knit. You will find places to use all your skills. I like to add crochet embellishments to my knitting and vice versa. Your knitting will become more beautiful the more you practice. Go for it!

That is so interesting. We knitters find tools everywhere we go.
