Getting excited about being in my first craft show this Monday, December 13th from 6pm to 9pm at Mugshots Coffee House. Planning on selling hats and scarves, so I have been knitting feverishly the past two weeks. Madame de Farge would be proud of me.
Haven't done this before, so I am working on my detachment skills so I can just accept whatever the end result is.
I'm using this yarn in a scarf.....I'll try to post a picture when it actually looks more like a scarf than a hotpad. Anyway....
49% Wool, 59% Rayon...Acts a lot like cotton when you're knitting it. Not a lot of stretch in the yarn itself, although the pattern stitch I'm using (a waffle stitch) makes a really elastic fabric. My scarf is 6" wide and I got about 7.5" in length from one skein (50g, 100 yards), so the waffle stitch uses a lot of yarn! I had to go back and buy more.
I'm using size 7 needles, but I should probably be knitting the scarf on 9's so it would have a little more drape...7's would be about right for straight stockinette, I think.
