22  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knit Picks, HOW DARE YOU! on: September 20, 2007 08:47:44 PM
 I was looking on Ravelry the other day and it said that Knit Picks Sierra was DISCONTINUED.  I couldn't believe it.  Then I looked on Knit Picks and it is gone! Just gone! I was going to use this in the near future! I didn't even get a chance to buy it on clearance.  I suppose I will just sub that Candea or maybe Wool of the Andes Bulky. Looking around Ravelry, this seems to be a very popular yarn. Any thoughts on why they discontinued it?

fishie - What a beautiful action shot!

> Roxybritain : using a separate ball of yarn to work the sleeves is what I'd do, leaving a long tail to mend the little hole that always subsists in a top-down knit under the armhole (or is it me ?)

I have the problem with the holes under the armpits too!! does anyone know how to prevent these? i usuaually just end up crocheting extra yarn into the big ones. ugh.

TA DA! Here is my split neckline cap tee! It is blocking here.

I used Debbie Bliss Cashmerino aran.  <Sigh> Such nice yarn.  I had trouble getting the gauge correct so I used a smaller gauge and then increased sizes.  I'm not too crazy about the neckline, I may rip it out and do it over.  I think the craziest thing about this shirt is that there is NO waist decreases, and yet the fabric naturally goes in at the waist and then out at the hips.  Maybe this is just my imagination.  MAN I LOVE THIS BOOK! I will post an action shot when it's dry!

I think the real problem is what I am working on now.  I am knitting tightly to get the gauge I need and this is because I am too lazy to get out a real circular needle, and I was using my denise needles now, and they only go to size 5.  Today I have swtiched to a size 3 circ so I can knit way more loose. I currently do not have a pad for my keyboard at work, I need to get one of those. I have started to do some yoga, and I actually thought it may hurt my wrists, since you place so much weight on them for a long period of time. I guess I just need to turn my energy worrying into prevention of the problem.  I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one dealing with this. Thanks for all your wisdom!
30  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: can yarn be cursed? on: July 19, 2007 06:48:52 AM
Not an expert on curses myself, though I AM an expert on cursing.  But I'd have to say yes.  Yarn CAN be cursed.  I've had the experience of cursing at it many times.  I've also worked with yarn that just WON'T work with me.  Most of those yarns with bad attitudes are currently in 'time out', waiting until I'm ready to try dealing with them again.  That's my recommendation.  Time out.  Let the yarn think about what it has done. 

ha ha that is so funny.  If I can't get a yarn to work (usually it's a gauge problem), I go back and alter the pattern to work for my guage. Maybe I should just put the yarn in time out.
