I am at the bottom of the sweater I am making for my son and am trying to decide whether I should use a 2x2 rib or a 1x1 rib. What have you guys experienced. I have always used 2x2 but wondered if a 1x1 would look better. It's a very plain raglan sweater with stockinette stitch. My son likes his clothing to be simple and understated. Any suggestions?

I had the same problem that Joe in Wyoming had. I tried sending an email to Ken in Maine and got an error message. Is email not working?

The posting below was made before Ron helped me figure things out. I hadn't read the very last set of instructions in the pattern, so I missed that I need to go back after completing the sweater and pick up stitches at the very first row, do a k1xp1 and then fold under and hem. Silly me. Thanks Ron!

Oh my how socks can take a long time when you don't work on them everyday. I started these socks about 4 months ago and after a year-long study of socks, I lost interest midway through the first sock. I'm sure you can all sympathize with how hard it was to push through the second sock. But, now I am confident that I can make socks well...no holes...thanks to the Evil Sock Genius!

I found this video and thought it might be of interest to some of you. It's all about weaving touch-sensitive conductive yarns into fabrics. Google and Levi Jeans have really taken it a lot further than just making gloves able to connect with touch screens. Enjoy.

Today I got an email regarding Etsy filing a registration statement for an IPO. I know some of you sell things using Etsy so here is the link that announces the registration.

I just finished this pair of socks for my mother. I like the way they turned out using the Evil Genius method again. The yarn is a superwash Merino/nylon blend that softens up quite nicely when washed and blocked. Mom's toes have a mind of their own and didn't grow especially straight, with two on each foot crossing over another. She never has to cross her fingers for luck, her toes have done that for her. She also has a very large big toe bone (cuneiform bone for those of you who enjoy anatomy) also known and a bunion.
