So, when I got home this evening, a package revealed my Dale of Norway Svale yarn had arrived! In blue to make Ribby Shell from Chic Knits. I've had the pattern for almost a year..and wanted to use my SWTC bamboo for it, but was advised it may not work. So in walks this yarn....I wanted to use it for Sizzle but way too much yardage needed..yikes...story of my life! I'm also wondering if I should make the flat panel front or go all out for ribbing?
So swatching will commence in the next few days..BTW: need to use a US 6 x 29" Can't find my denise tips in that size (in an WIP somewhere LOL!) So I plan to use my 24" knitpicks ones, or could I use the 32" ones? The dilemma...5" less of cord, scrunched up stitches....or 3" too much of cord, possible stretched out stitches..what to do...what to do... ;)
Here's the progress on my One-Skein Pal's gift. I've been torn between a felted bowl or this scrubby made from Aloo Yarn
It smells a bit...but not too bad to knit. Kinda weird though, like I am knitting thread with hunks of fiber. I need to knit 23" of this and then the icord and voila a scrubby. The bath mitt is crocheted...should be interesting :) I figure if it fails...I have backup...I have wool and I know how to use it! :)
