We’ve had a few questions-if you do not use ravelry for projects you may reference a social media post or if you need a different option-we’re happy to figure something else out 🙂 with the social media post-you will get an entry into our drawings if you use the hash tag!
It does not matter when you started a project what matters is when it was finished so if it’s a wip you have had fo years you can definitly include it once it’s completed!

Big Yardage!

Thick socks
Find a needle size or yarn weight that you knit faster with
Some yarns knit up better held with another yarn….like mohair!
Projects with adjustable yardage-knit you socks, mitts, blankets, etc longer/wider, make your dishcloth a towel
Is there a limit to the number of strands?
What are best practices for keeping everything untangled?
Why would you do that?!
