This is the post where all Dreambird questions and suggestions will be answered. Please post your questions on the Monday/Wednesday/Friday posts and I’ll transfer them all here to this one spot so folks don’t have to go through post after post looking for answers.
#1: What length needles work best?
My needles are 2.75 mm (because I didn’t have 3.0 mm, as recommended for the fingering weight yarn) and the 3.25 mm needles created a bit looser weave than I prefer. As far as the length, mine are 30″. I think 24″ would be fine but I wouldn’t recommend any shorter than that.
#2: From a reader - last page of 10-11. I knitted to within 5 st. counting double, when I turn do I make double st., k one? then pick up background? not sure if I’m reading is right.
Response by Krista (thanks!) - Yes, same as when you switched to the feather yarn at the beginning. Turn, make a double stitch. Knit one more. Then switch to the other yarn – but count the first 2 stitches as part of this row when you count, even though they are in a different yarn.
