  • Re: Knitting a Dog's Hair

    The very first fiber I spun was a 50% mix of Newfoundland and sheep - just a beautiful sheen on it, and I knit it into a vest. It sits in my closet waiting for a winter's day cold enough to wear it - and I live in Northern Michigan. If you are going...

  • Re: too many stitches, correct number of rows!

    Hi Zoe, Thank you for your advice on assistance to knitters. I am learning that issue too. Last February that we went to the yarn store I had in my hands one Debbi Bliss' books. I just could glance at it quickly. I do not remember which one was. There...

  • Re: too many stitches, correct number of rows!

    Hi Zoe, Yes, I was trying to say swatch but as I was trying to write as fast as I could, I didn't notice my changing words. I started crocheting when I was eight. We were to crochet a tablecloth for the Mother's Day at school. I tried to keep...
