Exponentially Expanding Information

As if I weren't feeling indecisive enough, I came across a couple more pages of Pinwheels.

Stitch Marker, who is one of the authors of Knitalong, has this page, and this gallery which leads to other blogs.

I've also realized that if I'm going to increase the number of stitches by very much, I'll have to make a serious effort to find my 60" circ.

ADDED: And as Martin, the other author of Knitalong, has pointed out, there's the Flickr group too. I may never make up my mind.

Two circs, same tip size but of any length? It's more manuverable that way.

I echo spinning fishwife, I always use 2 or 3 or even more circulars just as DPN's for large projects. I also find that a good garter stich border knitted on sideways, and you can use a tiny needle for that, will help the circular project lie flat. It is so easy to pick up the stitches this way as you just leave the pinwheel on the circulars and knit one stitch together with a border stitch every other row. Find or make up a 10 or 20row border pattern and it will fit. If you have Mary Thomas book of Knitting patterns then look at pages 232 to 234. or here http://www.yarnover.net/web/patterns/laces.html where this looks as if it would suit the yarn but it may be bigger than you want http://cache.lionbrand.com/cgi-bin/faq-search.cgi?store=/stores/eyarn&faqKey=289

I am SO glad that I finished off last night before I saw this! I ended up going with a moss stitch border, which I think will be good for this boy baby blanket. I probably could have squeezed one more row out of my yarn before casting off, but I got paranoid and quit while I was ahead. I think that the two circs is a good idea though; I would've gone that way if it'd gotten much bigger around.

Thanks so much for the long comment on my last post -- I really appreciated all your thoughts and comparisons to the system over there. There is so much reform that I think we should undertake as a nation when it comes to elections! Especially in light of the most recent news about attempts to disenfranchise large groups of voters... Sigh.

Have you considered the Cap Shawl from Victorian Lace today. It calls for Kidsilk Haze...
