Has anyone used Anna Zilboorg's "Magnificent Mittens"? There is a step in her process which is thoroughly trouncing me. It is the method of increases used in shaping the fingertip, namely, "pick up and knit x stitches". It's not a technique limited to her designs, I'm sure, so if anyone has any ideas... help. I'm stuck.

So, I am approaching the end of a project, and I've...well... I'm a blocking virgin, but I anticipate a need for it with this project. I was wondering if you delightful gentlemen could help me out. Be it tutorials, directions, tips, tricks, anything, it will be much appreciated.

I knit up a pair of Fetching form the latest Knitty for a good friend. I'm tired, but there is more info on my blog (www.thisboyknits.blogspot.com). A fun knit overall. (I will answer questions, but I'm lacking the energy to come up with words on my own)

I'm putting together a scarf for myself (based on a Saxon Braid design I found in a book) and I'm thinking about putting tapered ends on it. However, I don't really feel like figuring out the numbers for the tapered bits at present, so I thought of doing a provisional crochet cast on and coming back to it later, once I have the body of the scarf done, so I can figure out excatly what I need. I'm wondering if that would be odd though, picking up a provisional cast on and knitting back in the reverse direction. Are there any difficulties, does it give some odd looking join or anything?

I'm just curious how everyone manages their tension whilst knitting, I hear everyone has their own method.
Myself, I knit 'English' style and weave the yarn under my index finger, over my second and third fingers and under my pinky. What about you?
