Friends, I am in the process of knitting a neckdown pullover sweater for the first time. It is with circular needles and I have come to the point of having to cast on another skein of yarn. In the past I have used the braided method of adding new yarn. I am a little leery of using this method for a sweater. I also am not sure about adding a new skein the traditional way and later sewing in the "tails" as the entire sweater as you all know is in stockinette stitch and I worry that the sewn in yarn will be quite visible on the finished project.

It is amazing how difficult it is to learn a new skill. With this pair of ankle socks, I was bound and determined to conquer the Wrap and Turn stitches in the heel. The first sock was ripped out several times, not because I hadn't learned to do the W&T but because I let my concentration wander and made silly little mistakes. The second sock, I finished last night and I turned off my computer, TV, phones, etc., etc. I had to giggle because as I passed each spot where a mistake was made on the previous sock, I nodded at how careless I had been.

I'm trying to knit the Brethren Sock that so many on here have made. But I've done something wrong. Would any of the guys who have completed these successfully be able to help please/????? I'm using magic loop.
I've picked up the gusset stitches. And the stitches for the instep are not centered. There's thirty-eight stitches on the instep needle, and fifty-two on the wire.

My LYS is bring Norah Gaughan to Vermont for the weekend of September 19-21,
2014. I guess they had a couple of last minute cancellations. She is probably
one of my favorite knitters and I've knitted a few of her items. I'm trying
to attend but I need to move one thing so not sure if I'll make it. I thought

I can't remember where I found out about this Web site, but I have found it very interesting. If it was shared here on this site, pardon the duplicate posting.
Here is a quote from their homepage that explains their goal.

Well, I've spent almost all of my summer on this one sock, which for various reasons—the FIFA World Cup being a distracting culprit—has been done and redone many times.
