Help

I have some Madelinetosh and some Jamieson and Smith Shetland, both lace weight, that I want to use to make a shawl. The Madelinetosh is a reddish burgundy colour and when I used it before, the colour came out and ruined a bedspread when I blocked it. I certainly don't want it to run into the grey Shetland wool. Is there something I can do to set the colour before washing it?

Moving, questions, and yarn giveaway

Hi. It's been a while since I have posted anything. Knitting has not been my priority. I just finished my orthotic and prosthetic technician training at school (in Minnesota) and have a job lined up in Syracuse, New York. I was wondering if anyone on this site lives in Syracuse, New York? And if anyone has leads on places to live? I have begun to look for places to live on craigslist.

Is anybody managing the facebook group?
I applied to join a while back and just realised that my application is still pending

First day of Spring

Hi, everybody. It's the first day of Spring and I hope you all have a great one. I had planned to have the latest pair of socks done yesterday but will settle for today or, at the latest, tomorrow.
