I'm having problems with my ballwinder. I am using it correctly and it has worked fine in the past. However, instead of winding the wool in a criss cross way as it should, it is just winding round…Continue

I can't remember if I already asked this one. I'm really, really new to knitting and I'm totally confused. When I go to knit, I always get that length between stitches from purl to knit. I tried using the back of the stitch like Kelley mentioned in her mittens tutorial. But it's still there (lessened but annoyingly there). I'm a tight knitter and like the smaller weights. This doesn't happen as much when I use the larger weights. I really appreciate any help I can get :)

I do feel a discussion should be started called

Finished Items then we can add things in there that not coming under any of the other KAL or discussions

Only someone from Knit Picks can get a discussion started... we usually contact Jenny ( the one who started this discussion)... she would know what to do.  But there are KALs for socks, lace and shawls, and a whole lot more.

Yes i think we do as i started this & finished so it never has been a UFO

We always used the UFO KAL for that purpose.  Maybe we need another...

Comment by Janice Aitkens on September 6, 2012 at 5:52am

What i am trying to do is possible start somewhere that you can share your knitted items you finished but not in a KAL & there not a problem just to share so sort of start a new group within the site
