Hey - I am considering getting a simple [and I do mean simple] digital camera that I can use for photos and then posting them here and on Ravelry. I need a fairly inexpensive one as my budget is limited and I don't want to spend too much money that can go towards yarn. I figured my best move would be to get feedback from people more in the know - Any suggestion? Thanks.

Regia or Opal?

I have knitted all my socks in Regia brand yarn. I like the way it knits up; I can always get the guage to make socks which consistently fit me. These socks are durable and have a long life. All of our yarn shops were munted in the June earthquake so I've lost my Regia supplier. The only way to obtain some more is via the internet.

Math/design question

I am doing multiple cables within a row. There is a c4 that repeats alternately every 4 or 6 rows and a twisted 6 st cable that repeats every 6 rows.

How many rows do I have to chart until the whole set of cables repeats? I was thinking 60 but that seemed like too many

San Francisco Men's Knitting Group?

I saw a post on here from a long time ago. I'm new to SF and am looking for a men's knitting group. Are there any men who knit in SF? Where do you guys meet? Surely I'm not alone!!

Shaped Triangular Shawl from GOL

I actually managed to do this in just over a month. I ran out of the body colour and had to do boarder in a cream but I think it turned out okay.

Newbie Knitter question

Hey guys, I'm a really new knitter, having discovered a passion for knitting recently by using round looms. I haven't crossed over into actual needle territory, because I am having so much fun, and becoming severly addicted to this new passion.

Another Day, Another Knit. Thank Goodness

So much for sleeping in this morning. To bad I can't even blame it on my own dogs. I was awoken by the neighbors dog barking incessantly from six am on. Their idea of dog ownership is one of those things that has always stumped me. I've seen it over and over again and it's something that always fumbles my sense of logic. I'm sure to them it makes perfect sense.
