it's also not in the north hills, but i highly recommend bonnie knits in monroeville. the store is packed with yarn and they always have a sale section. plus the employees actually know what they are doing and are a lot of help.

it is definitely worth learning to knit, even if you still prefer crochet. that way you have knowledge of a new craft and can make your own decision about which you want to use at any given time. i predominantly knit out of personal preference for the way the fabric comes out, but i'm still happy i know how to crochet too for the times when i come across a crochet project i like. plus there are times when knitting and crochet can be used together in the same project.

it may be that you are binding off too tightly. try using a needle a size or so larger while binding off. that will force it to be looser. i've noticed that slippery yarns are sometimes very tricky when it comes to the bo.

i've had similar problems with knitting for my husband. every time i've discussed sweater making with him, he suggests so many details that the pattern would be nearly impossible to make! at the same time though, i think he's a little dissapointed that i've never knit much for him. my solution is to make him a sweater of my choosing (one that seems like his style) without him knowing. that way i can suprise him with it at christmas. the only downside is that i think he suspects something already.
i'm also hoping that the boyfriend sweater curse does not apply, but he's already made the big commitment and i think that deserves a handmade sweater!

never, never, never use a sewing machine to sew up your knitted project! of course, you could try, but the stitches wouldn't be lined up as well, and i can't even imagine what would happen using a machine to attach the sleeves or on some other curvy part. plus, your seams would be especially thick since with hand sewing you loose one row/column of stitches on each side of the seam, but with a sewing machine you'd loose many more stitches for the seam allowence.
hand sewing can really drag on your knitting flow, but there's no way machine sewing could bring the stiches together as smoothly.
