The silver content in SilverSpun makes it therapeutic and conductive. Silver kills a number of bacteria, including those that cause odor, has excellent thermal properties, is nontoxic and is perfect for those with sensitive skin. Silver is also an excellent conductive agent, thus allowing smartphone or tablet touch screen use while wearing gloves knit from this yarn. The silver is permanently adhered to the yarn and will not wash out. Made in the USA.

    As usual, you have the clearest explanation and excellent video, Johnny. When work buttonholes, let’s say you bound off 4 stitches on the knitting side of stockinette. So, would you then cast on those four purlwise on the return purl row, and if so, how…..OR would you bind off your 4 stitches on the purl side so you could cast on in knit as demonstrated on the return knit side of stockinette? Or would you just cast on (purl side) in knit cast on and have the little rib of purl stitches showing on the knit side. ???
