OK, so I usually look askance at these comments about "knitting in public." I knit anywhere I like, public or private, and I have never had a negative experience with it.

Since I still consider myself a beginner, I really welcome advice and ideas. I'm making my first sock. If it turns out ok, I'll knit the second and call them a pair. :)
Somewhere, in the last week, I read an article, with great pictures, of
how someone dropped stitches and re-knitted row by row using coloured pins
for each row.
Does that sound familiar to anyone?
Can't find the article.
My niece has asked me to do her a sweater, and I have tons of Bolivian alpaca in my stash. The yarn was supposed to be for a different project, but my friend in La Paz got the wrong weight. Now I am left with 900g of 2-3 fingering/sport weight yarn. Pattern calls for a US 8 needle and a gauge of 17 sts & 22 rows = 4" x 4". My gauge swatch worked up to 3" x 3" with 2 yarns stranded.

My wife saw this hat on a. craft table and I'm trying to make her one, but I'm not sure how to do this edge. It's not exactly scalloped but not straight and even either. Any advice? Thanks.
My first (and probably last for a good while) lacework project. Will be Christmas gift for partner's mother.

I just finished knitting a Beret for a friend of mine, the first for me. Anyway, I used two 16" circulars, a size 1 & 2. Well, before I finished I was needing to switch to a set of dpn's and I hated it so tried two 24" circular's. When I got down to a smaller number of stitches, I then had to use the dpn's.
Have dusted off the needles after a prolonged hiatus and have just finished a cardi by Josh Bennett from Rowan website. Left out intarsia-seemed a bit youngish for me.
