Oversized knit blankets crafted from chunky yarn and PVC-pipe needles have been floating around Pinterest for a few years now. And while the finished projects looked amazing, I couldn't bring myself to buy supplies that would take up any more space in my apartment. But now that needle-free arm knitting has hit the DIY scene, I'm 100% on board with giant knit everything. To guide our foray into needle-free knitting, we've rounded up answers to the most-asked questions and sources for stocking up on, then using, enormous yarn. READ MORE »

They would avoid any sort of longer-term occupation of penitentiaries. Security officials said members of Brazil's most powerful drug gang, the First Capital Command (PCC) — who last Saturday started a riot in Alcacuz and killed 26 members of a rival gang, many of whom they beheadedtried to invade their enemies' prison wing again early Tuesday afternoon. Images broadcast live on Globo TV showed prisoners from both the PCC and the local gang Crime Union of RNRN being the Portuguese initials for Rio Grande do Norte state — atop the roofs of their respective wings, waving banners with gang insignia and wielding knives, clubs and other homemade weapons. Scores of prisoners were seen running free within the prison — clearly indicating that security officials did not have control of the prison, which Franco said they had regained Monday night.

Thank you. We are very interested to see how this will pan out in the next few months. Those comments are aimed in part at Donald Trump who has talked extensively about the failures of Globalisation and free trade. He's been scathing about how they favour China over the US. Here's an interesting angle on the economic relationship between these two countries.

And unfortunately for those who believe in globalisation and lots of free trade it was not just rhetoric, those are still the same ideals that the President-elect has been talking about. And even those that are shared by some of the people that are going to make up his administration. Perhaps most pointedly is at Davos, one of the incoming White House advisers to the president has even said that, look, if China engages the United States with some sort of trade war, ultimately it's going to be China that loses out and not the United States, that the United States is in a much more powerful position.

Ipswich have got to be careful. They are constantly giving away free kicks in these areas of the pitch. It doesn't matter to Lincoln, it's going in and around the box where they can get knock-downs to cause Ipswich problems. That should be dealt with and is by Digby.

I think people have to be less worried. When societies are taking care of themselves and you are allowing some elements of the free market to work, usually, that is better for people in general. Markets seemed to agree - the pound rose against the dollar through the day, peaking when the Prime Minister set out her 12-point plan.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest received awkward applause from one person on Tuesday after the president of the White House Correspondents' Association, Reuters reporter Jeff Mason, lauded him for his service. During Earnest's final White House press briefing, he called on Mason to ask a question. Mason then commended Earnest for committing his time towards meeting with the press. Josh, first of all, on behalf of the White House Correspondents' Association, we want to thank you for your commitment to regular briefings with us, Mason said. We haven't always agreed on everything, and there has always been some tension, which is normal between a White House and a press corps that covers it. We are grateful to you and your team for working with the Correspondents' Association and for your commitment to dealing with us on a daily basis, so thank you, Mason added.

Why should they give us all of those things she suggested? As the Prime Minister said, partnership of the kind she described, whilst also going forward with an identity as global Britain. One person who did not answer questions was John Claude, he refused to take questions on that speech earlier. I spoke to the BBC correspondent Rob Watson for his analysis. such as being part of a supranational political entity like the European Union and having free movement of people.

Singer Jennifer Holliday told ABC's The View on Tuesday that she backed out of performing at President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration because she was receiving death threats from black people. The broadway star stopped by The View and discussed her recent decision to cancel her performance set for Thursday on the eve of the inauguration. Holliday was going to sing at the Make America Great Again! Welcome Celebration, but she canceled two days later. The performer said she got a call on Wednesday asking her to perform and claimed her social media went crazy with negative comments by Friday morning, when she backed out. I live a pretty reclusive life and then one morning you wake up and everyone hates you. I was like, what could I have possibly done to have these things thrown at me, Holliday said.

Out of Europe, no, but now, out of the European single market, in favour of a comprehensive trade deal with the EU. I want to be clear. What I am proposing cannot mean membership of the single market. So an important part of the new strategic partnership we seek with the EU will be the pursuit of the greatest possible access to the single market on a fully reciprocal basis through a comprehensive free trade agreement.

This could be an example of how Theresa May tries to split the EU 27. So far they have been tight and no notification, no representation. These people have used the free movement rules, what about the future, does she want to end it or control it? This goes to the heart of why we had a referendum and why Leave won. This chart shows the number of migrants and it is this yellow line, this yellow line going up, sorry this yellow lining going up here, which shows the increase in the number of EU migrant.

Temperatures topped at 13 Celsius in Scotland. Just one or two degrees in Kent though, big contrasts across the UK. Rain and drizzle in the North West. Some of that going into the night here. Wherever you are, where the cloud is thick enough, you may encounter drizzle. With cloud, those temperatures are staying up. Where it's clear across East Anglia and south-east England, in the countryside, quite a widespread and hard frost to come going into Wednesday morning. For much of the UK it's frost free but cloudy to start Wednesday.

He subsequently finished in the top 10 of MVP voting three times in the next five years. It appeared the marriage between Bautista and the Blue Jays was coming to an end when his contract expired after the 2016 season. The Blue Jays jumped on free agents Kendrys Morales and Steve Pearce, who has the versatility to play at first base or in the outfield. That eagerness led to the departure of Edwin Encarnacion. Bautista kept twisting in the wind because it wasn't clear where his market started. MLB Network's Jon Morosi reported Sunday the Baltimore Orioles had been in contact with the six-time All-Star. Rosenthal reported Saturday the Cleveland Indians , who signed Encarnacion earlier this offseason, were keeping in touch with Bautista if his price fell to a certain undisclosed point. Instead, as the Blue Jays faced the possibility of going into a season with Ezequiel Carrera as their starting right fielder, the front office decided the best course of action would be to bring Bautista back.

Sobey free trade grouping outside the EU still with special relationships? Indeed. I think we will find an arrangement with the United Kingdom somehow but it's going to be pretty tough. And the United Kingdom itself must define what it wants. Because it has to be no longer a shareholder. The statute says only members of the European Union can be shareholders.
