Hi,

Have you got any thoughts on ways to make knitting and other fiber arts more environmentally friendly? I am curious about recycling fibers. Do you have any experience with this?

Who is your favorite (knit or crochet) designer?

Hi Debbie Smiley

Do you prefer wooden or bamboo needles over metal? Why or why not? I've read that wooden/bamboo needles are more comfortable than metal but I'm not noticing a difference. Is it just me?

I thought of another question today:

How do you recommend adjusting the bust in knitting or crochet patterns to accommodate for larger cup sizes?

I'm so so so glad your doing something beyond the basics! I love your books, they came out a few years after I started Knitting and really helped me learn a few basic things and now I'm so excited to see this new book!
I was wondering how involved you are in choosing the fiber content, colors. etc. for your new line of yarn? I would be interested in how and why you made those choices? (I really like the yarns btw!)

I'm a new mommy and it's impossible to find sweaters that are cute yet functional for breastfeeding. Have you ever thought of putting together a book of not only maternity knits, but knitwear for the breastfeeding mommy?

Hi! I have "The Happy Hooker" and I love it, but I prefer knitting, since I learned when I was 4 years old (compared to 24 for crochet!)

My question is: when did you fall in love with knitting, is it something you've been doing forever or did you discover it later in your life?

Hi Debbie! Long-time crocheter a few attempts at being a knitter here. Your books are very inspiring, and I love how they are written for a more up to date world of fiber arts.
I too am in the category of hoping for another crochet book, but wanted to ask:
Do you find there is a bigger need for knitting books than crochet books? Or do you just prefer writing knit books to crochet ones?

I love that I can get your yarn at a giant craft superstore. Not everyone has local yarn stores to go to, so it's nice to have some available yarns with different fiber contents.

I second the question about beginner projects above -- scarves and dishcloths can be boring. Would you ever consider doing a project-to-project stepping stone book for teaching knitting skills? Starting off with something super easy and small, then moving up to harder and harder things, introducing a new technique or two every project.

Also, what's your favorite finishing technique? That is, your go-to method when you want to add a little something to a finished project?

I own all of your knitting books and will definitely be getting the newest one for Christmas! I also own the Happy Hooker and would love to see another, like everyone else.

  My question is "Are you interested in any other fiber arts? ie spinning, felting"  Also, a more technique question which I'm guessing is addressed in the new book "When making cables, I often will get a hole or a loose part of knitting right next to where the cables cross.  Do you have a recommended fix for this?"
