Question from wwallet, “When you come to a join in your ball of yarn, what do you recommend doing?
a.) knit so that the join is hidden in the back and remains there?
b.) cut and rejoin the yarn
Why is one method better than another and why can yarn companies get away with doing this?
Leslie gave up on Judas Unchained by Peter F Hamilton. She listened to both The Fold and Armada during/after SSK and then listened to Patient Zero. Now she is re-listening to The Night Circus. She has read Magic Breaks(7th Kate Daniels), The Curse Giver, Cottonwood, and is finishing up Written in Red.
There will be a separate thread for FO’s from either the yarn or the fiber with all entries due by 8/31.
Laura is speaking and teaching at the Midsouth Knitting Guild Workshop on the River
