1  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Cosmetic Ingredient Suppliers in UK/London? on: May 16, 2011 02:24:05 PM
Thanks for this advice. I am trying to find behentrimonium methosulfate. Does anyone know where I can find it in the UK?
2  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Cosmetic Ingredient Suppliers in UK/London? on: May 16, 2011 11:05:14 AM
I am trying to find suppliers in London or elsewhere in the United Kingdom who sell deodorized cocoa butter, preservatives, avocado butter, fragrance oils, essential oils, castor oil and other ingredients. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions about this and links to websites. If anyone has had any experiences with any retailers in the UK, I would also appreciate feedback about their services.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Help Finding a Coat Pattern? on: October 29, 2010 07:36:47 AM
I like the Simplicity 2311 pattern, but I have never made a coat before and I am concerned about the back yoke:

I would prefer a coat that was similar to view b but without the yoke at the back. I do not understand why the back is split into three pieces. Would it not be possible for me to cut the back in one piece? How would I compensate for the seam allowances?
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Translating Industrial Yarn Weights? on: May 07, 2010 06:58:12 AM
Hi, I am trying to figure out how to translate industrial yarn weights to have an approximation of whether an industrial yarn is a lace/heavy weight/bulky/dk, etc. For instance, what does NM 2.5 mean? And N.M. 2/7000?
Thanks to anyone who has advice about this.

I was able to find some explanations here after searching on the web, but the translation still is not clear to me.

Does this help?

Thanks very much, yes it does.
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Favorite Brand/Type of Double Point Needles on: May 07, 2010 03:43:55 AM
Does anyone have a favorite brand or type of double point needles? I bought a set of cheap double point bamboo needles from China and have been really unhappy with how sticky they are. When I bought them, I thought that they would be like my Clover bamboo knitting needles, but I have been a bit dissapointed by them. I then switched to Magic Loop and have gotten tired of fussing with a cable. It is especially annoying for very small diameters.

Do any of you have a favorite type of double point needles? I.e. Bamboo, metal, etc.

Also, do about have a favorite brand? I am looking at Bryspun right now, so I would love reviews of them, but I am also open to other brands.

The smaller number - 2, 3, whatever - is the number of plys in the yarn. The larger is the meters or yards per pound. The M would be meters in this case. Maybe this article will help a little - http://yarnforward.com/yarncount.html
Thanks, soozeq. I saw this after posting. So does this mean that the 2.5 nm is a dk weight or an Aran weight? I am trying to figure out which one it is.

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Will Frogging and Reknitting Guage Swatch Change the Final Guage on: April 18, 2010 05:32:06 AM
Hi All,
I have knit a worsted weight 21-stitch guage swatch and am concerned that it is too small. I would like to frog and reknit the gauge swatch. Will this give me an inaccurate guage as opposed to knitting with fresh yarn? I am planning to wash and block the swatch after knitting it. Thanks in advance to those who respond.
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What is the name of this cable? on: March 11, 2010 05:45:04 AM
http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_iuwLnLZI6aI/SoCHxBLOFyI/AAAAAAAABUg/LzWe8RSnusk/s1600-h/IMG_0955.JPG

If anyone has a link to a page that describes how to make the cable, I'd be grateful. Also, are the cables mirrored? How would I go about planning a sweater with mirrored cables?
