Hi All,

Am “stuck” on a project that am hoping to be sending to test knitters very soon.

Meanwhile, thought I’d mention two things:

1) Franciska mentioned a couple of times that, instead of double pointed needles, she uses three 16″ circular knitting needles, casting onto the first two and knitting with the third.

2) Although I read the following in Mary Thomas’ Book of Knitting Patterns many years ago, I somehow forgot to include it in the instructions for crocheting off: Instead of using a crochet hook, knit together the stitches that are supposed to be gathered into a single or double crochet; then *yarn over, pass previous stitch over yarn over, repeat from * for the number of crochet chains indicated.

Hoping the above encourages some of you who were a little uncertain about what to do instead.

Glenda
