Found a fix to get Craftsy videos to work on slower internet

Hi All After posting recently about Craftsy having classes on special offer (then probably having a rant) that my internet wouldn't let me play, I thought it only fair to share the fix. I finally found a way to get Craftsy videos to play smoothly on my slow internet connection on my PC, blogged the ...

Re: Ending with ws row.What does this mean?

Ending with a wrong side row, I take it to mean that you work the wrong side row (usually a purl) then start the next set of instructions with a knit row. That's how I read it, too. Thanks x When I measured it last night I've over done the rows a bit so I've put a spare knitpicks cable through wher...

Ending with a wrong side row, I take it to mean that you work the wrong side row (usually a purl) then start the next set of instructions with a knit row. As for 'continue without shaping until armhole measures 19cm' I always measure straight up from the start of the armhole. When I make my first d...

Re: knitted Tilda doll

Haven't heard of knitted Tilda stuff, I've heard of their sewn projects, they have quite a thing for rag dolls and home decor. Think of rustic New England style with bare floorboard painted white etc. Very nice projects. Where did you find a knitting pattern for their dolls?

Best wishes
