I got the fiber yesterday. The rich lanolin smell alone is enough to make me totally love it.

Tee hee,  I know what it says now!

Btw, I love the scarf and the dirty message on it.

I've got the same issue going on as kulispel.

I wanna know what the naughty scarf says!
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: How to split a ball in half? on: March 19, 2008 10:45:14 PM
Oh sure, gettin' all technical on us.  Wink

In the past I have just wound from either end of the hank into two balls roughly the same size.  I didn't have a friend to help me wind, or even one to hold the yarn, and I don't have a swift, so picture me on the couch with a hang wrapped around my feet, first winding one ball for a few loops, then the other, and figuring that they were freaking close enough, thanks, by the end.  Cheesy

it's might be easier if you put the yarn skein on the back of a chair, count the loops, then wind one ball for 1/2 the loops, cut the yarn, then wind the 2nd ball. (If there's a 100 loops, each ball is 50 loops)

That is brilliant! I plan on trying this theory quite soon. Thanks for the idea. Smiley

The incredible Etsy is always a good place to find lots of different handspun and/or hand dyed yarns made by individual artisans, along with some pretty unique needles.

As for more store-like stores, I've had good experiences with Knit Picks, Yarn Market,  Elaan, and Webs.

Surely there must be a way to combine Steak and BJ day with Pi Day. Oooh, I'm getting some bad thoughts >: D

They look tasty. I love the happy little message on them! : D
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Least favorite part of knitting.. on: March 13, 2008 08:54:31 PM
I loathe having to make two identical things. I'm totally sick of it by the time I finish the first one, why do I have to suffer through it again?

Also, I hate knitting flat in stockinette stitch. My fabric always comes out lopsided because my gauge is always looser on the end of the fabric where you start all the wrong sides. -_-
