Been a while:

I haven't been on here in a LONG while. I started working and stopped having time to blog. For the most part it was either knit or blog, and knitting won. But now I'm here. Most of the work I've done since I was on here last I either sold, or gave away as gifts. I made 1 sock, and gave up on the second. Mostly what I've enjoyed doing is creating fun beanies for my nephews.

Knitting in High Humidity

Any advice for knitting in high humidity? Yarn recommendations? cheap acrylic gets unmanageable (*hears Bill snickering in the background).

Whenever I can't find the colors I want I dare to overdye. The yarn below is the same yarn as the yellow socks.

Needles, hooks, books and yarn donated to a local Elder care home. I will pop in now and then to see what projects the guys on here are up to.

Best of Luck....Knit on.

Sweater arm bind-off question

I have been working diligently on a sweater for myself and I am to the point of binding off the 2x2 rib sleeve. The original pattern called for an i-cord bind off, but I wanted the more traditional rib simply because it hugs my wrist better. Which bind off would you guys use? Just a regular 2 x 2 rib bind off? Will that be stretchy enough.
