I believe I have read on this wonderful site before about softening yarn/garments after knitting up if they do not turn out as soft as expected. Cannot find the information now. Can someone out there help me please. Am in the process of knitting a cot blanket. The yarn is 60% acrylic and 40% nylon. It felt soft in the ball but does not now feel as soft as I am knitting it up. Any suggestions gratefully received. Thanks in advance.
I made Christmas trees this year. Knitted a basic tree shape and stretched and stitched it around a polystyrene cone. They looked very effective.
Ocado issue smart passes which entitle you to free deliveries for a year and first pick of Christmas slots. I obtained mine free but cannot remember how. Suggest you check their website.
My Mother offered my sister and I some bread and dripping. We asked 'bread dripping with what'? We had no idea what she meant! We are both now in our sixties.
Thanks for the suggestion. I have unfortunately spent the last few hours looking unsuccessfully. I don't mind paying for them if I can source them.
Do any of you wonderful founts of knowledge know where I can obtain any knitting patterns for Disney's Lion King
characters. My grandson is crazy about this film.
My favourite story (which I have posted before - apologies to those who have read it already) is from a friend who was clearing out her grandad's shed and came across a tin labelled 'bits of string too short to be of any use'!!
That's beautiful. Think you should market them. Put my name on the list for one! As well as yarn, needles and patterns I also love buying knitting bags!
I love her. Did you buy her new? If you did I would love the details so that I could get one for them please. They love their dolls and so do I! Thanks.
So glad I'm not the only addict! Still there are worse things we could be addicted to!
I would be absolutely furious. Complain! Or just for your own sake but so that no-one else gets caught out. Hope one of our lovely members can help you out.
Please don't put them out for the birds. According to the RSPB it is dangerous for them. Sheeps wool or short lengths of string are best.
