I am going to make a heavy sweater jacket for hiking in the cold weather months. The yarn it calls for is Morehouse Merino Bulky (100% Merino wool) that knits at 10 sts and 18 rows = 4" in stockinette stitch. That particular yarn is $17.50 or so. I need 8 or 9 skeins of it! Ouch.
Hey Guys! Just thought I would post here to let you know of the CFF. It is part of a larger Got to be NC festival. It begins Friday Morning and runs through Sunday evening. There will be classes, vendors, demos, and more. It is housed in the Jim Graham building on the North Carolina State Fairgrounds in Raleigh. For more info check out: www.carolinafiberfest.org. Hope to see you there!
