I can imagine.... I always have a spin out when things don't go as they should on here.  :))

Lesley, this happened to me last time I uploaded a photo, for some reason the pixel width box was blank, it used to always have a number in it before.  Maybe yours is the same.

Thanks Marion, but I'm stumped already - 'pixel width box'?? No idea what I'm looking for!  I used to think I was reasonably tech-savvy, but this site has long since made me realise I was fooling myself :(

Were you able to resolve the problem?

Choose your file to upload, then at the very bottom is a box for the width, I put 721 in, this made it smaller. I use an iPad, I don't know if it's different. Hope this helps, Lesley, I'm not very good at explaining things.

Yay! It worked!  Marion, you're a star - thank you, thank you, thank you!

Hello a new member please tell me what is the best size needles to use - uk . Thankyou 

Hi Ginny. I tend to be guided by what it says on the yarn band....unless the yarn seems a little thin and/or the tension a little too loose when you begin knitting. Usually, I use 4mm/size 8 UK needles for 8ply yarn, unless as I have said, the yarn seems a little too thin, as happens at times. If the yarn is Aran or chunky, I use what size it says on the band, though I have had cause to go a size smaller, a couple of times.

I tend to do an inch or so and see how it looks and measure it for correct width, if I'm using a yarn I haven't used before, as they can vary. We aim to make our squares as close to 8" as possible, but if it turns out a quarter/half inch bigger that's all good, too. If they turn out rectangular, like 7" x 9" that can make it a little tricky for our sewing volunteers in South Africa.  :))

I hope this helps...thank you for joining us.
