Posters to these boards are knitters and crocheters like yourself. If you have a specific question for the Craft Yarn Council, please send an email message to:

To get the most out of these boards, before posting a topic, we suggest:

Scrolling through past posts to see if your question has already been asked and answered. Postings are in chronological order of the date when the topic was first posted. You can also use the SEARCH function to look for past posts about your question.

If you don't see your question addressed, or if you have additional questions, post a New Topic rather than replying to an existing topic. This will increase the likelihood of getting responses to your specific question. Also, try to describe your specific question in the topic subject line rather than "New Knitter" or "Help."

The more information you can provide in your question, the better the responses.

We hope you enjoy the postings on this board and will come back to share your knowledge with others.

to Goose: posting in the archives - not a good idea

You're probably unaware that most of us will not look beyond the second or third page (some have said that they will not look in the archives at all when they see a "new post" that is not on the first page) to track down archival additions.

You did the right thing by posting your original query as a new topic.

If you want to tie into an old topic you can simply reference it in the "new topic" message. Give the subject and author and then it's easy to find.

If there were a quick link to new posts in old messages the problem would be eliminated, but so far this problem has not been addressed.
