    Ha ha ha. Misti Alpaca has magical properties. I'm gonna get out my own unfinished Mist scarf and see what luck it might bring me.

    …some of the best knitters in Norway are men. There is a 80 year old man that knits a pair of Selbu mittens every day and sells them. He has done so for the past 50 years.
    My son who is 14 is a wicked good knitter.

    Your scarf is perfect! It shouts "KNIT ME!" I'm sure your beginners will be very pleased with this as a first scarf. And ladies…the yarn is a MUST!

    if I were 20 years younger, well heck younger at all, I would really appreciate sitting next to that handsome devil! Oh, by the way everyone, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

    Lucky you, getting to sit next to that eye candy and then to teach him to knit a scarf!
    The scarf is beautiful and the colors are perfect!

    Love the colors! Do you ever have any problems taking your knitting needles on the plane? I also love the brown fingerless mitts (?) you are wearing in the first pic, do you have a pattern for those? I have become obsessed with the fingerless mittens for some reason and searching for the perfect pattern. I really like your site, very easy to follow. I found you first on you tube, looking for the magic loop. Planning to buy the ebook soon.
    Thanks for you teaching,
    Jyll

      Thanks Jyll! I don’t have the pattern for the brown fingerless gloves – I just made those up as I went along. Sorry! But you can use the worsted-weight mittens pattern and just stop once you get to the fingers, and do some ribbing. That’s basically what I did. And yes, you can take knitting needles on the plane now. I’ve never had a problem bringing circular needles of any type or length, plus metal tapestry needles and small sewing scissors.

    Liat,
    You make me laugh! I enjoy Knit Freedom very much, and check it
    out every day. I knit English, but I would really like to try continental.
    It world up much quicker. I have Knitting like a superstar, and magic
    loop videos. You were born to teach, my friend. Keep going, and we
    will keep watching and learning. Best to you!

      Kathi, you are too sweet. I’m so glad that I get to be a part of your life through KNITFreedom and it means so much that you visit every day.

      I hope that you get a chance to try Continental Knitting. You’ll have to let me know how you like it. :)

      Hi Kathi,

      You are ready to learn Continental! You’ve got in in your Knitting Superstar e-book (the bonus videos). I know you can do it!

        Hello, my friend. I’m happy you have such faith in me….Could I borrow some?
        I have the wonderful tape from the hypnotist, and believe me, it was made with
        all of us in mind. Is there anything you can’t do? What a blessing you are to so
        many. You inspire great things in otherwise ordinary knitters.
        Come East, and meet all your followers and friends. Liat, you are heaven sent.
        PS If you need a place to stay, I have a super guest room.
        xoxo

      Whoops! I can’t believe I left that information out! Haha. I updated the post to have the needle size (which is 10 1/2). Thanks!

    I think every Argentine man I’ve met has been gorgeous, so maybe there’s something in the water there? The scarf is gorgeous, too!

    How fast did Nico pick up the knack for knitting on the plane? His smile says a lot about his experience with you. Looks like he did quite a bit & proud of it!! I hope he was able to bind off his work to take with him to show it off! I’ll bet he went to buy needles & yarn to continue his new found love.
    Did you stay in contact with Nico?

      No!! I couldn’t find him on Facebook after we parted ways. Too bad, too, since a couple years later I went to Argentina – I probably could’ve looked him up!

    Loved this article but could you please add metric sizes when you are quoting sizes. In this you say to use needles size 10-1/2 but is this UK size, or US size or metric? You have readers from all over the world so this is important.
