Amanda, Jenny has said what I would have said. First, welcome. I see you are already a member of some of the KALs. Find the one that best represents what you have a question on. There will almost always be someone around to answer. I have my email preferences to receive email notices anytime a comment is posted in all of the KALs. [Yes, I am a member of all of the knit alongs.] One thing I would add to what Jenny has said is that sometimes after a kit is sold out, KP will add it as a downloadable pattern.
I have added you to my friend list. That means, if you want to contact me outside of the public area, you can send me a message.
cherylbwaters - Thanks again for your time & I too plan on teaching my girls the gift of Knitting =) I know too well how after losing a loved one you realize you should have listened to the little stories they tried to tell you <3
amanda - I just joined Ravelry a week or so ago & I too am still figuring things out... I do know you can search knitpicks yarn by name & they will list the projects that people have done with which ever yarn you click on. Good luck! =) Also, KP customer service answers a lot of questions if you call them too!
I hope i am doing this right, i don't quite understand the format of this forum. (i am starting up a new questrion, but in a current discussion i think??? Is that ok?)
Anyway, i am getting ready to start a baby project, a top and pants for a newborn. I really love wool, so was considering swish (for washability) But even with all its softeness, it is still not as soft as something like comfy - my other choice!!
Which would you all suggest? swish or comfy? color is not an issue, i can choose from either. I actually prefer the firm hand of wool (and swish is actually kind of drapey for my taste!) but i don't want to go all the way to wota for this project. I am leaning towards comfy, as there is no doubt it is soft enough. Anyone make baby clothes with swish and LOVE the feel enough to choose it over a cotton?
I have used both for baby clothes. I have aksi used Shine and Stroll Sport. All have worked very well.
Susan, the orig. pattern called for red heart (an acrylic). I checked on ravelry, and a couple people did use a kp yarn (simply cotton sport, for one) Do you think comfy would be a good substitute? (concerning drape)
