i'm using bernat satin .. it's soo soft *pets pets* .. i'll try dampening it ..

hehe and i'm a total noob that i started knitting by pulling the wrong end so the working yarn isn't comming out from the middle like it's suppose to .. it unravels around the outside .. maybe that's why so much of the fibers keep flying off >.<

The creator of my knitting group uses those Harmony needles and really likes them. Plus, they are pretty!

Mistress, I love Bernat Satin. It really lives up to its name. But because it's so soft, it does pill a bit. And don't worry, I almost always pull the wrong end of the yarn. I eventually just gave up and work with whatever yarn end I can find first, haha.

Angelic, yeah, they're really pretty and such a reasonable price. I'm a bit worried I'll have trouble finding the stitches on such a brightly colored background though. *pulls out lighted magnifying glass* I'm glad to hear they've gotten a good review from your friend.

I cannot, for the good love of all that's holy, figure out how to crochet... >_<;
Are there any good links out there that you guys know of?
I got chain st. down pat...it's the whole crochet st. where I get lost.. ><

Just because I don't type with candy and rainbows doesn't mean I'm being mean.

There are tons on Youtube. I learned from them and a book. I could never learn anything from another person.

I'm looking on youtube and almost everywhere else, but no one seems to go slow enough for me to understand it.
