These are not widespread problems, but they come up so I thought this would be a good time to mention them.
- Please do not tie your finished scarves into a plastic bag when you return it. It is fine to return your finished scarf in the same bag that the Magic Ball was in; just don’t tie the bag shut.
- In like manner, please do not tie your gift tag on to the tail of your work. Please weave in the tail and use a piece of scrap yarn to attach the gift tag. Here’s how: https://www.handmadeespecially.org/gifttags.html
- Please keep food away from the plastic bag that contained your kit. It is hard to clean the bags and you know we try to reuse everything. Also, if the loose end of your Magic Ball was taped shut, please don’t put the piece of tape on the plastic bag. We don’t reuse the tape. It’s fine if you just throw it away.
- Try not to knit on the points of your needles. Knit on the fat part of the needle. Knitting on the points is the same as using a smaller size needle. That makes your scarf come out too narrow or too short.
That's it. Please let me know if you have any questions.
