I WONDER how many of you have discovered haw great it is to knit round ajid round on Receives CPS Rating SUNFLOWER .. . wallhunging features Uulybug on leaf. circular needles, avoiding a great deal of finishing. You can eliminate most seams by knit- ling this way. With circular needles, you cast on stitches in (he same manner used with straight needles. But, if you plan to work round and round to form a tubular piece instead of turning your work and knitting or purling the last cast-on stitch, you simply start by knitting the first stitch which was cast on. This automatically joins your work and you will then knit all the stitches on every round for stockinette stitch. For a neater joining, cast, on one more stitch than is required. When you have done this, slip the last cast-on stitch to the other tip and knit this stitch together with the first casi on stitch. Before joining your work, check carefully to sec that your stitches arc not twisted on the needle. That is, the smooth portion of every stitch should be on top of the needle and the "bumpy" part should be on the bottom surface of the needle. If you do not take this precaution, your work may be hopelcsfrty twisted. Unfortunately, this won't become apparent to you until several rows arc worked, and it can not he corrected. You will just have to rip out and start over. With double-pointed needles, cast on a third of the stitches on the first needle, a third on a second needle, and the balance on a third needle. When this is done, push the stitches of needle number one toward the op|«vsite end of the needle and, with free needle, keil these stitches. Next, push stildies of I h e second needle toward opposite end and knit them. Repent this • •'{•<•«:* with the stitches on the third needle and one round will • • vnpLvc. If you find this awkward— and many do —you can cast aH the stitches onto a straight needle. WJth each of three, double-pointed needles, knit off one third of the stitches; then, with fourth needle, join and work in rounds. When your work is completed, you will probably want to whip together the two studies at the joining if you cast on in this manner. With either method of casting on, check, just as you do with circular knitting, to be sure tiiat your stitches are not twist- ei h if ore joining. Mrs. Jack D. Van Natta, 600' West 15th, lias been awarded a certificate for the rating of certified professional secretary, granted by the National Secretaries Association (Int.).

Hints from Heloise Dear Heloise: 1 hate to clean silver —any kind! When it gets to the point of no return in our home I invite a foursome for lunch or friends for dinner By Heioise Cruse % Then I clean and polish furiously and have a wonderful time doing it. Neva G. Dear Heloise: Here is a helpful hint for the ladies who have synthetic wigs. As you know, when they are washed, synthetic wigs should not be dried on a wig stand, but allowed to drip-dry. Well, one day when I washed mine and was trying to find a place to hang it, I thought of my washer. Just raised the lid, placed the wig over the post and left the lid up so the air would circulate and I e t it drip till dry. Mary Cat hey Dear Heloise: Whenever you are in need of chilled glasses in a hurry, sinmly hold each glass in turn sitfewiiys and scrape it along the inside of your freezer. The frost will drop on the glass aud chill it very quickly and effectively. Needless to say, your freezer must not be frost-free! Mrs. K.D. Dear Heloise: I am a great ribbon and bow saver. I can never bring myself to throw away the pretty bows that come on gift packages. However, when,I go to use them I never seem to have rib- [ bon to match the paper I have! on hwul or vice versa. So 1 cut! tiny pieces off all my bows and! tape them on a small card that I can carry hi my purse. When 1 am in a dime store 1 buy a few yards of ribbon to I match the bow sample or paper sample, whichever it is that I need. Mrs. O. S, Dear Heloise: I read your column the very first thing every morning. I have not only learned a lot but have gotten a lot of laughs too. And that is what this old world needs — more love and more laughter, Keep it coming! M^g Strom (Send your suggestions to Heloise, core of The Hutchinson News, Box No. 190 Hutchinson, Kan.)
