2007 a year for Recycling

Three years ago I crocheted an afghan and this year I decided to frog the afghan. From that yarn I will make it a knit Afghan project. The yarn is Plymouth Yukon.

I have taken all the yarn out and even though knitting is supposed to take less yarn than crochet, I believe this project will take more yarn. I am making four panels and each panel takes aroound 8 hours to knit.

Here is the pile of yarn.

Who Will Be Number 900?

I only joined recently, but even as a new member I've seen this site grow since I started. As of writing this the tally of registered users says 899.

Who will be number 900?...

nope, it appear that one can CREATE a new entry, but reply to is kaputzki.

I'm not sure either - things were real wacky for a while and now again.- maybe something to do with the spam-storm the internet had today.

Two Color Hat

Hi y'all,

I've logged onto this site every day for over a month now and am loving it. I've been inspired by many of the projects I've seen and have knitted up many of them after reading and seeing them.

I do need help though. I am knitting the brioche hat from Weekend Knitting by Melanie Falick, desinger of the hat is Wendy Easton. It's on page 66 of the book and here's my problem. In the Crown rounds, specifically Crown Rnd 2, the instructions are confusing cause the stiches I have on my needles are not the same as described in the book.

Has anyone else had difficulty with this pattern? Help a new guy out, I'd really like to finish this hat so I can knit another one. It's really an amazing looking hat.

Regards, David
