so I've only been at this for a week or so, but I seem to be doing pretty okay.
anyway, here's my situation. I'm currently working on a scarf and I had my colors all picked out and whatnot, but then I noticed my roommate had some really rad looking yarn in her collection that compliments my own colors perfectly. the only possible problem is that her yarn is chunky and mine is more of a worsted weight.
how bad is it to use different yarn weights in the same garment? I was thinking of using her burgundy in a seed stitched large stripe at both ends of the scarf (with the rest done in garter stitch), but I just don't know how it'll look with the difference in weights.
of course, I could just go buy some new yarn in my weight but:
a) I'm lazy...
b) now that the question's come up, I really want to just know the answer.
and now that I think about it, what about mixing stitches like that? does that turn out okay, or is it generally a bad idea? basically, this is my first project and I'm just throwing stuff out there.
