1031  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Hey Craftsters.... What's your favorite kind of knitting needle? Size, Kind... on: June 20, 2005 01:27:12 PM
My favorite needles are......
INOX circular for socks... they are metal and slick... i tend to want to knit socks very tight and the stitches slide easier. also the cable part of the needle is soft and doesn't start acting like a slinky.
SWALLOW casin type needles for ribbon and cotton projects.. they have short points and are so smooth and pretty.
CLOVER BAMBOO for most other stuff... they seem smoother at the tip then others I've tried
SUSAN BATES alluminum for intricate patterns with yarn overs and pick up sts. They have the longest point which makes grabbing stitchs easy.
CIRCULAR NEEDLES for large heavy projects. the weight of the yarn is more to the center rather then the end of the needle for lest stress on my wrists.
but in times of need, I will use anything available

Patons "pull up your socks" has a few cute toddler sock patterns and socks to fit everyone else u know too. I think u can purchase that online fairly inexpensive.

I find it interesting that Eleanor Roosevelt was known for bringing her knitting everywhere. She also knitted everywhere. If u ever visit her Hyde park home, there is a little museum next to the house. There u can see some of her unfinished projects and her knitting supplies along with pictures of her knitting at public meetings and while her husband, the president, spoke.
So that said.... I bring my knitting everywhere...I knit at times I would be just sitting or standing staring into space..such as the DMV, the movies ( that time slot before the previews) the hairdressers and the bank. At least Im doing something productive and creating something that is hopefully beautiful when finished .(hehehe) I don't think the act of knitting can be put into an offensive category. Although I'm sure someone will try to find it that way.
1034  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: knitting for warm weather BOOK? HELP! on: June 15, 2005 11:22:14 AM
Have u checked out "the yarn girls guild to simple knits"? There are some very simple tank tops and shawls, all good for warmer climate. The patterns are simple and good for beginners. I live in a warm climate and also knit lots of tank tops, socks for my family up north. Socks are fun because they are small and u can bring them with u everywhere.  Grin

Some airlines will allow only wood or plastic needles ... not metal. I usually use wood to be on the safe side and I use a baby nail clipper to cut my yarn.  Wink
