Re: Hi everyone I am Babette

You could close it using the same method that makes an I-cord or you could use the Magic Loop method of circular knitting, though that is hard with such short circulars. If you don't want to use DPNs, I think the best option is to knit it as if it is an I-cord. To do this, work the stitches in the r...

Re: Today's knitting pattern

If you want to contact the adminstrators of the pages outside the forums, you have posted in the wrong place. There is a link at the bottom of the other pattern page for contacting the webmaster who oversees those pages. While they look very similar, I'm not sure the same people maintain both sets o...

Re: Today's knitting pattern

The pattern I got was for a felted eyeglass case. I assume the moderators caught their mistake and fixed it.

Re: Learning to Crochet

While I understand you are trying to be helpful, there is quite a bit of misinformation in your post that I think needs to be corrected, so that new crocheters will not be confused. Also, if you want to encourage new stitchers, please consider the comments I make at the end of this post. First, you ...

Re: BEWARE BROKEN LINKS TODAY 4/25

What's even sadder is that it's been this way for at least 6 months. A while ago, the adminstrators mentioned thay had another forum (facebook, I think) and that they "sometimes" forget to keep track of what's happening here. That was the last time they posted anything. I 've tried to cont...

Re: Wanted to Buy Bright/Fluorescent Green Phentex Yarn

You might want to try the Ravelry website. (It's free.) Many people there have made records of the yarn they own. You can search them using the "search stashes" feature to see if anyone has that specific color and weight. If you find it, you can send the person a message asking if they are...

Re: Having a little trouble...help!

It sounds like you are making something lacy or a row of eyelets. The instructions are telling you to yarn over and then insert the needle for a purl stitch. Wrap the yarn around the needle twice and complete the purl stitch. Repeat this until there is one stitch left. Then, yarn over and knit the l...

Re: Website Administrators - Please Fix Your Patterns!

This highlights one of the biggest frustrations with the free pattern portion of the website. If you miss a pattern, you are supposed to have TWO WEEKS to get it before it is no longer available. Unfortunately, now you cannot get it at all. There is no way of knowing when, or if, it will ever show u...

Website Administrators - Please Fix Your Patterns!

It has been months since the Missed Pattern section of this website has worked correctly. Instead of listing the patterns from the last two weeks, it generates a new list of random patterns everyday. Sometimes these patterns haven't even been listed in the Pattern Of The Day section yet. Today's new...
