Last time I posted I was talking about the cost of postage. Today my husband went to post another parcel. He did not post it because I will have to save some money for the postage. Yes it was a big…Continue
Apart from this I usually try to make my joins at the end of a row so that the ends can be woven into the edges and then secured by the seam.

Hope this helps.
Many thanks for the friends request. I see you had a problem with postage. The PO always want to send parcels by airmail, so I usually say surface mail before I hand the parcel over. It often takes a couple of repeats but they get the message in the end.
My parcels have ranged from about £3.50 to £6.80 so far.
Hi Elizabeth and welcome to KAS. I originate from Tyneside so I try to keep up to date with North East news. I visited Billingham about 30 years ago on a training course. I remember staying with a lady who only had a coal fire for heat and it was only lit at night.
It was one of the coldest weeks of my life because of course it just happened to be winter.
I mainly knit jumpers with matching hats as knitting an 8" square for me seems impossible. I've recently started crochet classes which I really enjoy.
This site seems vast and it does take time to navigate, however everyone is very friendly and helpful.
Whatever you do for KAS will be well received. Happy knitting/crochet/sewing.
I find UFO's (unfinished objects) the bane of my existence too and recently was able to finish several unfinished squares I found stashed away, plus two slipovers. Great feeling of accomplishment I must say. I like the squares too because they're fast to do, less likely to end up in a bag in my closet "for another day". :P
