I'm working on the Chasing Rainbow baby blanket for a friend it's lovely to work on and super easy. A bit annoying I can't see how it's lying yet as it is being worked in the round.

so because I am so ADD I casted on this project to challenge me a bit. And it is. For me this is NOT a sit and watch TV kind of project. I have to be so careful of every stitch! But I can do it!!!

Again, not recently made, but I love the idea that with this teddy pattern, I could do a LOT of different themes!

Working on a linen hat. It's pretty, but not as fun as wool.

I love that grey color. Can't wait to see how the finished hat turns out!

Sorry the picture isn't very clear... I was looking through some old pictures this morning and found this one.  I made these a long time ago, thread crocheted baby booties with a crocheted butterfly sewn onto the instep.  Newborn size, perfect for Spring babies!

So is it just me or sometimes does it seem that no matter how many rows you knit the scarf just seems to stay the same length?

It can be tricky to get a good block on a slouchy hat. I make my own hat blockers from cardboard and I like the results. Enjoy!

So I ended up completely frogging my shawl/wrap project and am in process of starting over. Despite the awesome link that was given to me by +Tephra Lynn I couldn't seem to figure out how to fix what I dropped. So I flogged a few rows and when I went to start again I realized that I dropped a stitch or two (side by side stitches) more than half way down. So needless to say I got mad and now starting over lol.

My question is this. This project is based off a scarf pattern that is basically 1 row of yo, k2tog then 1 row knit and repeat till it's the length you want. So if I decided to do 1 row yo, k2tog then 2 rows knit and repeat is that going to mess anything up? Lol since I'm used to doing simple all knit no flare I had to ask before I got started past the first few rows and had to frog again.

I have spun up a lot of Alpaca roving into 3 ply yarn about worsted weight.  I'd like to dye &/or bleach some of it.  The roving is unwashed, so has a bit of oil in it.  What is the best way to dye it.  I was thinking brown &/or gray - maybe a blue-gray.  Then I'd knit or crochet it together for a tweed look.

So I had to frog the garter stitch blanket I was working on because the stitches looked uneven and some of them looked like stockinet. WTH? I am knitting all stitches. Why does it not look right?

That happens when tension is uneven.  As you practice – assuming you're not dropping your yarn between each stitch and picking it up – your tension will improve, particularly if you try to ensure that your tension is neither so tight that it pulls the stitch(es) of the prior row up to fill in the bottom of the stitch which is too tight to go all the way around the needle, nor so loose that there's more than enough yarn to go all the way around the needle.  Irregularities can also occur if you put your work down in between rows, because the gap between the two stitches on opposite needles is pulled slightly.  With circular knitting, obviously, you must stop between the beginning and the end, and those little gaps will occur, but they're generally much smaller as that gap cannot be pulled as much with all the knitting helping to hold the needles in line.  Those minor gaps are unlikely to show after blocking, and others will also be minimized.

I don't usually post blog links here but this one is different, my knitting needles are rebelling and I need advice :\
Knitters of the world, I need your advice. So there’s this thing, on my finger. It goes away when I stop knitting, it comes back when I start again. It gets a lot worse...

+Shell McShellister it helps to avoid textured yarns. Which usually isn't too much of a problem as I prefer smooth ones anyway.
