1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Looking for men's basic hat pattern - pref free on: September 30, 2009 08:56:59 AM
For me, this is possibly the easiest hat that I've ever made. And it's free.

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: What is your favorite needles brand? on: September 28, 2009 08:33:35 AM
Knit Picks needles all the way across the board for me. I love the cords for magic loop (I do all my socks that way). I've never had much of an issue with the interchangeables coming apart while knitting though. Only once and that was just because I hadn't tightened them up enough to start off with. I've had tips on the cords for months and never came loose once.

I'm not much of a DPN girl but I do like the Knit Picks DPNs (Harmony).

I"m with Riki on this one. Doing socks 2 at a time with magic loop has saved my sanity (relatively speaking...). I have 2 pair of socks in my UFO bag that have yet to be finished but since learning how to do 2 at a time, I've finished at least 5 pair.

From what I've read, if you choose a sock yarn that has some nylon in it, the socks wear better and last longer. Jahwol sells sock yarn and accompanying reinforcing thread to use on the heels and toes.

Another good idea is to make more than one pair that you'll want to wear a lot... just another excuse to make more socks Wink

I just tried and didn't have any problems. It's possible that it was just a server hiccup.
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: What do you do with yarn you bought but won't use? on: March 17, 2008 06:00:39 PM
I usually turn all surplus or unwanted yarn into an afghan/blanket or sometimes slippers. your can mix together all sorts of colors and yarn styles and often also put several strands together. Result is a quite easy, interesting and usefully item.
That's what I usually do too.

I feel your pain. This is one very good reason why I don't use variegated yarn on it's own for any project (unless it's socks). Even when I do use it for socks, I still get one sock that looks great, nice color patterning. The other, the colors pool and looks like camo yarn  Angry Not that I have anything against camo yarn... just that I wasn't going for that particular look  Huh

megziewoodles's suggestion is a good one though.

I picked mine back up, redoing it in the garter stitch version (big squares). I was doing the smaller squares in stockinette  Undecided
