I wanted to introduce myself to this wonderful community. My name is Jared and I've been knitting for a few months now. It's just one of my favourite addictions (I don't know if those last two words form an oxymoron, but it works just the same). I constantly either get teased for being a guy that knits or praised because you don't see many guys in Kansas that do this.
I'm really excited to be part of this website as use for getting great advice and tips on how to become a better knitter. Thus far, I can do the basic patterns, but my current scarf, a moss rib stitch pattern, has made my life a living hell. I don't know whether or not to just rip the whole thing apart right now. Way too many bad gaps in the knitting.
And now for a question: Does a lower weight yarn than say my Lion Brand Thick N Easy yarn work better for cabling? I'm really interested in learning this technique so any advice on yarn choice would be wonderful.
