I've used 6 balls of SWS now and haven't found a break/knot in any of them.  I thought you only found flaws like that in seconds.  When I started a new ball, I joined it using the "wet and splice" method to avoid any knots in the scarf.  That way there aren't any ends to weave in either.

No, not just seconds yarn. Expensive yarns like Noro have them, cheap yarns do too. It just depends if you get a skein that was pieced together or not.

For those of you who hate weaving in ends, I recently discovered knitting in the ends. Smiley http://sockpr0n.blogspot.com/2006/10/how-to-weave-in-ends-while-knitting.html.

My combination knitting style alternative (because if I try it the way she demonstrates, I just pull everything through--yuck!) is to put the old yarn over the new yarn (instead of the needle) and then throw the new yarn over the needle.  You will need to hold the old yarn in place as it shortens, otherwise it will slip or misbehave.

argh! This is my first time picking up stitches... I know this shouldn't be that hard. From which direction do I pick up the stitches? I thought I had it the first time I tried, but I kept getting a big loop of yarn just hanging there. I know that can't be right. Sad

It depends if you have the knit side facing you or the purl side. With the knit side facing, insert your needle into the edge stitch as if it were a stitch on your left needle and you're going to knit it. With the purl side facing, insert your needle from behind and purl it.

I finally finished my Danica after about 2 months of knitting. You can see what it looks like before and after blocking. Made from Patons SWS.

it's nice to see the contrast between blocking and not. i'm in the middle of making a baby blanket, so now i've got  a little idea of how it'll look.
