abbeeroad--I have been meaning to ask about your avatar...what stitch is that?  It almost looks like something I would do by mistake except it is very patterned...like there is a twist in the knit stitch?

I just ordered a book of 400 knitting stitches so I can learn more stitches! Cheesy

Actually, abbeerorad is currently wearing one of the "robes" I made for the Harry Potter craftalong.  Its from a Harry Potter scarf that I made on a knifty knitter loom.  Its probably twisty looking because I use two strands when I make a scarf.  I own a Gryffindor and a Ravenclaw scarf.

I can never figure out how you finish the end on a scarf on the nifty knitter.  Any clues to share?  Thanks.

Its really rather easy.  Since I don't know how to crochet (or knit), I can't really say for sure, but I believe its the same type of thing you would do for crocheting, casting off.  You take your hook, and starting away from where your yarn comes in, take a loop off the peg, put it onto your hook, put the next loop on the peg onto your hook and then pull the first loop over the second loop and off your hook.  Then you repeat the process until you get to the end and then tie up the loose end.  I generally use the long loom, and not the circular loom for scarves. 

If you are visual, here is a video I just found on it:

Hope that helps!

hehe!  Yay!!!

Ok, so my husband tried the pickles that I made using Missing Willow's recipe.  He has been foaming at the mouth to try them for weeks (keeping a mental record of when he could open one), and snagged a jar of whole pickles and took them to work yesterday to share with his coworkers.  They were an absolute hit!  They all loved them!  Hubby thought the flavors were excellent, not too sweet, dilly, or spicy!  So, if you all are looking for an AWESOME pickle recipe, you should definitely give her's a shot!
