I'm a relatively intelligent woman.
I've done research.
Searched the net and youtube.
And I just can't seem to get this to all work out.
For God's sake, I can weld and I can't do this?!?!?
I'm going to keep at it. Think I may need some in-person support.
I have a call in to the resident expert at the LYS but haven't heard back yet.
Anyone out there want to be my lifeline?
On a happier note... Yarn of the Month Club for April is swatched (clockwise from upper left):
- Tatmy Tweed by Kraemer Yarns - I knit it at 4.25 st/inch.
Easy to knit and soft but, mweh. Nothing distinctive, plus it's got a bunch of acrylic in it. Listen to me! What a snob.
- Breeze by Karabella Yarns - The only one I knit to projected gauge at 5.5 st/inch.
Winner by a long shot. A beautiful light weight silk/cashmere. I may have to add this one to the list using the lovely tank pattern that came with this month's yarns.
- Laser by Feza - I knit it at 5.25 st/inch.
Wierd, something so... how you say it, artificial. Can't imagine what one would ever knit with this. And I had such high hopes.
- Balance by O-Wool - I knit it at 4.75 st/inch
Again with the O-Wool, good ethics but nothing I'd want against my skin. It's a little "sticky".
And a little present to myself. Malabrigo Kettle Dyed Pure Merino. I'll just call her "yum".
In Verdes. To celebrate the coming of spring. I've been told it really is on the way.
What should she become?
A scarf? Fingerless Mitts? Who has advice? A pattern to suggest?
