Michael’s and Joann’s has almost nothing, and all I have is a half thing of sock yarn and I’m trying to make mittens.
If anyone has any leftover maybe I can buy it from you?
I found 2 skeins of different colored Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Socks 80% superwash merino wool, 20% nylon at the thrift store for $3 and wanted to try crocheting with hand dyed yarns + wool but…
I have no idea what to make!
Socks would be the obvious choice here, but the skeins are different colors (1 is called Childsplay and the other is called Watercolor) and 1 won’t be enough for 2 socks.
I started a simple ribbed top yesterday but starting to feel like I’m not doing it justice as it’s beautiful.
Throughout the 100-day challenge I've become more creative and resourceful with my materials and I've heard others comment the same. I've been tracking each week in my BUJO for accountability and noting what I've learned along the way as long as how I've been feeling. Thank you to this community for the support!
Does anyone here have experience working with Mohawk Superfine? I’m looking into writing, illuminating, and binding a short book of the Bible, probably Ephesians. I know Superfine is a much loved paper by bookbinders, but I don’t know how it handles ink or gouache.
I found a really cute superfine yarn that is a cotton/acrylic blend. I think it would make a nice Tshirt type top or lightweight sweater. I’ve looked at a lot of fingering weight sweater patterns and most call for a US 5 or 6 knitting needle. The only thing I’ve knitted in this weight before is socks, but that seems too big? I feel like it might be hard to work with. I’m used to using size 1 or 2 with similar weighted yarn. I guess my question is, am I looking for the correct thing or is fingering weight different from superfine (1)? Or is it just normal to use the larger needles for tops? Thanks so much!
I'm having a difficult time finding some decent free patterns for superfine yarn. I am getting a shipment in of Stenli Muffin yarn and I want something to make with it. I'm not loving the premium patterns I'm finding online, and I definitely am having a hard time finding free patterns that I like too. I don't want to make socks, but I'm up for making anything else besides maybe a blanket (don't think I'll have enough for that.)
What are your guys' favorite patterns or books of patterns for superfine yarn? I'm sure I could find something I love if I kept digging, but I just figured I'd get some recommendations from people more used to working with this category of weight.
