Puzzled! Who is the quote from? Not me. I have never done a provisional cast on, would not know how. Are you quoting me quoting you? Repeat: Puzzled, but no biggy. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค—

Somehow what I typed got put in as your quote? I thought I read where when you lived in Ohio you made a hat in a hat or a doubled hat. My sister wants a doubled hat and I was wondering how you made them. The top down or the bottom up? Sorry for the confusion, any pointers for a double hat I would be grateful for.

I've never been to Cleveland, but my hubby gets mad when those Indians beat Detriot Tigers. Glad you had a good time there. Did you find any good yarn shops?

I want to make a hat in a hat. Would I need a top down pattern? I am trying to make one now with a provisional cast on, but I have never picked up sts from that kind of cast on. This is a first for me.

Hello from Australia. The process of growing wool can be horribly cruel to sheep and I'm so ashamed it occurs in our country. To prevent the sheep's rear ends becoming fly blown ( maggots), all the loose skin (and some sheep have very large amounts of loose skin in that area) is cut off with giant shears. No anaesthetic until AFTERWARDS when it's thrown in the raw wound. We are talking about a large amount of skin - the resulting scarred area is about six inches all around the "offending" rear end. The scar tissue that results does not have wool growing in it so it's all nice and clean and smooth. It's called mulesing. It's considered very commercial, prevents fly blown sheep and the wool gets a better price. Thank goodness people are becoming more aware of how unacceptable this practice is - both customers and farmers - and better methods are being devised. You pay more for wool that comes from non-mulesed sheep and some in the fashion industry will only buy it and they usually advertise the fact. Hard to tell how most wool is produced when you are in the yarn shop but suppliers of non-mulesed wool always specify it for obvious reasons and it costs more. I've only recently learned about this practice and am making every effort to use ethically produced wool. Sorry to get so hot under the collar but I think most people are ignorant about this and if more people become aware, at least they have the option to choose.

TY for this information. I never heard of this before.

I have never raised sheep, but it seems that it would be more cruel not to shear them as I don't think they shed like a dog or cat.I think shearing a sheep would not hurt. Does it hurt you when you get a hair cut? If the animal is hurt during the shearing, I think the person is doing it wrong. Like clipping toenails can hurt if done wrong.

Tunisian crochet is about as close to knitting as you can get and still be crocheting, I think.
