I have just purchased the Swatch Gauge and I love – it is so easy to use and work out your tension. It made me feel very confident about my knitting.

I am in Western Australia so I was up for shipping and also the currency exchange but I don’t regret it at all

I have a cuestion tho. What is the best way to store circular needles so that the cable doesn’t get curled?

I like Lykke points but the cables are a bit stiff.

I actually have. Did you give it a good wash (soak and rinse) to see if that helped? I would use the warmer side of warm water just to be sure you overpower whatever was causing issues. Please do let me know how this goes!

My eyes became puffy each time I began knitting again. I use wools and super wash yarns but have never had a reaction. After 3 days testing my theory, I’m convinced it’s the yarn or the factory wash.
Have you heard of this before?

I paused my Ramona cardi briefly to whip up a caplet in a pale peach for my Mom in time for Mothers Day. You can see it as a WIP on my Ravelry project page. She will love this for spring evenings.

With those at $100 I don’t think I want to spend any more.
