I just heard a report on the news here in Chicago that Yahoo email customers' email accounts may have been compromised. It is suggested that you immediately change your password for any Yahoo account that uses your email password. I have just changed mine.
You can tell when I am homebound because of snow and cold. I knit like a madman! I made a cowl out of a Berroco yarn similar to the scarf I made. It's a bulkier weight, so I used US10 needles and, again like the scarf, I simply did a 2x2 rib. Ken, I used the miraculous bind off you mentioned and it worked well.

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.
A friend of mine loves acrylic yarn hats. I only make hats for him as it is a fun venue and I get to play with different synthetic yarns, specifically acrylics. I make hats for him and he does appreciates them a lot. This pattern is my own, "Daniel" it is brought up to 152 sts on worsted weight Paton's Canadiana.
I have finished the torso of my sweater and now need to do a stretchy bind off 1x1 rib. I have used Jenny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind off on socks and it gives a bit of a ruffled edge, small but still there. I am wondering if there is another stretch bind off that doesn't give that effect. I don't think I need it to be that stretchy either. What have you all used?
"ANGEL" My version from the book "Knitting Mochimochi" by Anna Hrachovec, a great book about a knitted form of amigurumi knitting.
"MOSAIC 1" pot holder 18cmX18cm Pattern from the book "Mosaic Knitting" by
Barbara G Walker
This is a good example of 2 color slip stitch knitting. I knitted the whole "thing" in garter stitch making the completed pot holder lay flat, but the 2 colors don't seem to "pop" as they would in stockinette.
