This is a fun idea!

The last stitch on my knitting is always extremely loose. How can I help rectify the situation? It's extremely annoying.
Here's a link (to a forum entry on knittinghelp.com) that talks about making gauge swatches for projects knit in-the-round.
The method described involves knitting a row, sliding the work to the other end of a circular needle, then knitting the next row from the same side (leaving a long loop of yarn across the back). Advantage: you end up with a measurable rectangle instead of a loop.
Has anyone tried this method? Are there other methods to recommend?
I got a kitty and want to spin kitty hair yarn. Her coat is super soft and about an inch in length, which I've read seems to be the minimum for spinning it without needing to blend it with wool.
I found a company that will spin the yarn for you, but that's no fun. Anyone ever spun pet hair?
Twisted, humorous commentary is also encouraged! :)
Who do knit for the most; yourself or others?
My only complaint since the site changes is that when I come to the site (HOME) it always says PAGE NOT FOUND instead of having all the latest posts. It's been like that for a week or so. It has all the sidebar stuff such as polls and log on window.
I have have the new theme working on IE/Mac. If it's working on the old Mac version, I can only assume the latest PC version would render it fine.
If you don't see the user login block, scroll down to the bottom of the page.
The user login block is now located on the right. It's size was apparently breaking the theme, but this isn't an issue on the right side. All the world loves a workaround!
I've looked at the site in IE/Mac, Safari, Firefox, Camino and the whitespace/left column dropping issue is gone.
I created this new thread to report any theme problems you're experiencing with the theme. Just leave a comment with what's going on and the browser and version you're using, as well as whether you're on xp, osx, linux, etc.
