My needles are driving me nuts!

My interchangeable needles screw onto the cables and the keep coming undone while I knit. It's driving me crazy. So, I'm shopping for new ones. Any recommendations?

Help Decoding, please!

Ok, so I am almost finished with a sweater, it is a top down raglan and I want to put an open crew neck on it. Eric Paul dug up these instructions for it but I need a little help decoding.

Short rows on a seamless sweater - when and where?

I've done a dozen or so baby sweaters without short rows, no problem. I did Jared Flood's Cobblestone a couple years ago and it turned out great.

circular needle size question

The pattern I have calls for 16in circular needles. I have a set of circular needles but I don't know the length. How do I measure them to see if they are 16in?

RIP Barry Finn

Shanty Singer, friend. The worlds largest voice and a heart to match in a wiry little body.

The world has lost far more today then it will probably ever know.

EZ Sweater Help

So I finally did a sweater using EZ's no seam raglan method. All was going well until I got to the collar. I used the percentage method and the body and arms worked out fine.
