21  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / knitting must have's on: January 03, 2008 06:58:46 PM
I have just started knitting this past year, and I'm trying to get everything that I just MUST have to knit more than one thing (LOL)

I have
5 size 00(US) sock dpns
5 size 1(US) sock dpns
4 size 2(Us) sock dpns
8 size 3 (US) standard dpns
1-29" size 6(US) circular needle

what others would you suggest?

I have a limited income to spend on this, but I need your advice, thanks!

22  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / rant about lack of local knitting places.excuse the mess on: January 03, 2008 06:51:35 PM

I received a wee bit of money for CHRISTmas....I wanted new knitting goodies..

I went to my only local LYS, Wally world...

they only have the prepackaged cheap needles, and not all the sizes, 2 different sized circular needles, and yarn. that was about it.

I am so upset. I am so angry.

by the time I drove to the nearest LYS it would use up most my money and I wouldn't be able to buy anyway.

I am so mad

am I the ONLY knitter in northeast Alabama? I mean come on people. Surely not. They had all kind of crochet needles, and crochet books, but NOT KNITTING. Can you believe that?

I ask you to please forgive my rant. This is ugly I know. I just simply don't understand why no knitters love. I am upset for sure.

what do you knitters do when theres no local LYS & you don't have a credit card to buy on line?

stepping down off of my ranting box

here's another post where I'm talking about my DPN socks.....I just don't know what I'm doing wrong....all of them are like house socks (if you know what I mean).....maybe it's the thickness of the yarn...

I am trying to make up socks for my CHRISTmas gifts this year (strapped for cash, you know the drill...so make it! LOL)

I have tried making them with the magic loop method & I end up with a tangled mess.....

is there a particular size circular needle I need to use to create this?

I have a

 6.00 mm (us:1) 29"-73.5 cm circular needle

can I magic loop with it?
