    I am for the first time working with circular needles – do you have something on your site as how to perfect working with these needles

    I just love the Fair Isle cardigan that Andrea is working on! I have crocheted for about 25 years and have always wanted to learn how to knit as well. Seeing that sweater gives me the motivation to try to learn.

    What a delightful surprise. I love knitting and reading the newsletter.
    This was very personal. Thank you all for showing your work and part of your life.

    I love the stuff you are all working on. I just can’t seem to master the socks!! All I can say is Knit on to Will in that area.
    I’m in the process of starting a shawl, retrying my hand at socks, and a scarf on my needles.
    You all keep up the fine work.

    I would like to know where I could find the pattern for the Fair Isle wrap. It is great to see all of these fun projects!

    Studio says: Hi Carolyn, as it says above, you can find that pattern in the latest issue of Knitscene.

    I think you are all extremely gifted at both knitting and crocheting. I do both but knitting is my first passion. My grandmother taught me to knit using the garter stitch when I was about 10 but then I never tried it again until my daughter was little. I love both crafts but I still don’t know how to do a purl increase. Could someone explain that in one of your newsletters? Thanks. St. Louis Kate.

    Studio says: Hi Kate, see the Increases videos at KnittingHelp.com for a variety of both knit and purl increases, or if you’re local, come into the Studio and we can help you learn purl increases.

    Hi! Thanks for sharing your thoughts and your projects. It was fun reading about you! I have been knitting and crocheting a number of years now but I recently came across a problem with gauge. Working on an afghan in Vanna’s Afghan book…Warm up America! Afghan. The gauge says Block 7 x 9 but doesn’t say which block the textured blcok , the shell block. I thought I guess it doesn’t matter otherwise the pattern would have specifically would have said.
    Tried the I Hook which the pattern suggested. Completed the block and it was too small 6″ wide and less than 9″ long…Tried J Hook…still too small…Tried K still too small…then L hook …too large…what do I do now? Should I buy different needles from the ones I have and try the gauge again. I know the overall afghan should be 49 x 63 and I would like to end that size…what should I do?
    Thank you for listening.

    Studio says: I applaud you for gauge swatching! There is a metric size between the US size K (6.5 mm) & the US L (8 mm) which is a metric 7. You might try that hook and it might be just right.
