I wish I could afford to go to SOAR, but never been able to do so. I'd love to be able to take spinning classes so I can get the most use out of my spinning wheels. There's nothing wrong with my default yarn, I'd just like to be able to easily spin to the desired specs.
I always weave in before blocking. I usually overlap the new yarn with the old yarn and knit 3 or 4 stitches before continuing with the new yarn. After I"m done, I weave in both ends through about 1/2 to 1 inch on each side, making sure to stetch out the fabric. And when I trim the yarn, I make sure to leave about an inch or so remaining. To date I haven't had the ends pop out after blocking.

Ben is wearing a harness??? How does he like it? And how do you get it on him without getting scratched?

I like eBooks, but mostly its fiction ebooks that I buy. I'd prefer to have these in print, but I don't have the money right now for printed copies and ebooks are cheaper for me right now. And, I still prefer my knitting books to be in print since I refer to these very often. And even with ebooks in the form of PDFs (which is what I use since I do not have the $$$ to buy Kindle or the like), you still have the problem of illegal copies being passed around and resold on eBay. Some romance fiction authors have had problems with this happening to them. There's just no way to have some sort of net crawler going around and "destroying" bootleg copies of pdfs, at least not with the current technology that we have nowdays. I suspect that there will always be the need for knitting books to be in print - the problem is how to get these books to cross-country markets where the predominant language is not the same as that of the original books and booksellers may not be aware that people really are interested in these books.

I will definitely be getting all of these books. I have the original KITOW. When the new edition came out, I was hesistant to get it, but now I'm kicking myself for not getting it when I still had a job. Soon as I have a job again, I'll be buying it. Right now I'm working on a polo pullover that I'm designing on the fly, and I went to the bookstore to take a look at the 2nd. edition for some points that I wasn't clear on, namely how to do the placket and options for finishing off the neck.

Deebow, in this country, police do not have to be everywhere and respond to each and every call for help. That's why many people like to be able to own their own guns and carry these concealed, in case their homes are invaded or they're held up by a robber in the middle of nowhere, and get a bit upset when politicians try to circumvent the Second Amendment. Why shouldn't it be the same for Iraq?

What a loss! I was saddened to hear of her death. I know that she leaves behind a great legacy for us fiber enthusiasts.
