    Enrolled in your KAL Tortola. Ordered Cashmere 365.
    Would you be able to give me the name of company I can order Hiya Hiya needles.

    Also enrolled in Craftsy- Improve your knitting. Learning….
    What would be difference between Craftsy class and Improve Knitting Techniques at Webs?

    Thank you!

    • They are totally different classes. The Craftsy class “Improve Your Knitting: Alternative Methods and Styles” explores different styles and methods of knitting. The live class “Improve Your Knitting Technique” is all about how to properly knit and create a perfect fabric. How to advance you stitches properly, use your needle, tension your yarn, size your stitches, the exit path of your stitch. It’s 3 hours of knitting with me being able to diagnose what each knitter needs. The last 45 minutes we go to the “bag of questions”, and knitters can put in ANY question about knitting and we explore.

      As for where to get Hiya Hiya needles, ask your local yarn store. They are sold in yarn stores all over the country, as well as online sources.

    Okay just found stores that sell Hiya Hiya needles from your tutorial on cast on and bind off.

    Still curious about the classes.

    Hi Patty, for those of us overseas, are you planning to do a cast on/ bind off class for Craftsy?

    I’m going to have a newborn soon so unfortunately I will not be making the classes, but I do love HiyaHiya! I enjoyed reading this article. Thank you!

    Enjoyed this article!

    It is interesting in matching cast-ons and bind offs.

    It like the Twisted German for stretchy cast-on because of the more structure it offers larger projects like sweater hems. Hadn’t considered the double crochet bind off before. Nice pairing! In the past, I’ve paired the Twisted German Cast on with the Icelandic Bind Off.
