1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / fluffier yarn on: December 20, 2006 09:56:43 PM
I just started knitting to entertain myself over Christmas break. I'm knitting a couple of scarves for people, and I chose a yarn for my mom that seemed ordinary enough. It's Lion Brand Color Waves, but I'm still having trouble knitting with it. It's going much more slowly than with worsted weight yarn, and the stitches don't feel right/it's hard to tell what I'm doing with all the fluffiness in the way. Any tips?? Smiley
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / just starting on: December 13, 2006 07:18:33 PM
Okay, this is a silly beginner question. Humor me Smiley
I bought a crochet hook and yarn at Wal-mart last night and read some online tutorials and taught myself how to crochet a chain and single crochet, just enough so I can try to make a scarf. I practiced a few rows, but I was wondering if I'm doing it right: When you remove the hook from the yarn, it should all unravel very easily, right? I would hate to finish a scarf (even if it's a horribly uneven one) to have it all unravel on me (yeah, I read how to finish off a project, because I never figured that out with knitting haha). Okay, that's all Smiley Any excellent tips you have for me to not make the worst scarf ever, I'd appreciate them Tongue Thanks!
