Hi everyone, Do any of you subscribe to a knitting magazine?  Which one? Is it worth the $35 for 6 issues or are you better off just sticking to buying individual patterns and yarn? Thanks.

I would stick with the library and the digital editions. There's no guarantee that you'll even like everything in the magazines.

I needed to learn the Picot Bind off so I can finish the Appletini MKAL. I love the folks over at New Stitch A Day. Very easy follow tutorial.

Need some help, here!  - 
 
So if I need to stop knitring something when I have 25% of my yarn left n for the finishing how do I know that I have 25% of my yarn left do I weigh before I start that particular ball of yarn? Thanks

So I have no idea what I did to my Hitchhiker but I almost had a frogging freak out moment. Something went wrong with the point and I had a huge loop. I pulled a bunch out and had issues getting it back on the needles and had to pull out more. I got it back on and all stitches are accounted for. Whew! I am just not sure how many rows I am in to do the next bind off point.

Count the Vs from your last completed point. I used to count them to six.

Don't give up: this yarn was not destined to be a sweater. It was destined to be a shawl or scarf and mittens. :)
