  • First, use a lifeline -- at a point where you know the pattern is correct, thread a contrasting yarn of thread (dental floss works great for this) through the live stitches

  • The Silkroad DK Tweed is lovely yarn -- 85% wool, 10% silk, and 5% cashmere

  • I offered the yarn to the first person was asked for it, so I sent it off to a good home

  • End of story? Well, the retailer I bought the yarn from emailed me and offered to take it back after reading about it on my blog

  • Opal distributor who checked the photos on my blog and agreed the yarn was mis-labelled

  • Opal credited the retailer for the yarn, and the retailer in turn gave me a credit for the full price I paid for the yarn

  • Marjorie asked a good question in the comments: Do you have any advice for substituting yarns? I have a lot of stash yarn that is about 345 yds for 50g, making it heavier than the yarn you're using or that many shawl patterns specify

    Snarky wonderfulness.

  • Working with yarn sometimes is like working in the garden

  • Yarn doesn’t lie, either, but it speaks in a softer voice

  • And I can tell that I’m going to run out of yarn

  • So what to do? Soldier on, run out of yarn, and knit the toes in a completely different shade? (if you’re interested, I’m talking about the blue stained-glass looking socks ) Soldier on, and hope that my LYS has another ball of the exact same yarn and color? Admit defeat, and make them for someone else who has smaller feet? And what about the mistake? It might not be noticable to non-knitters, but now that I’ve seen it I can’t look at the socks without pangs of guilt

  • We weren't far from the very pretty town of Perth, where I managed to find not only a yarn store, but a yarn store that was having a closing out sale

  • And oh, how I wished I'd been there a few weeks ago; unfortunately, all that was left was scratchy wool and novelty yarns

  • Anyway, I'm happy to be back, mostly because of this: Knitting photos soon! I knit a pair of socks on the fishing trip, but I didn't finish my Leaf Lace Shawl -- because I ran out of yarn on row 8 of the 16-row edging! Grrrr

  • (Something fabulous about this pattern is that instructions are provided for four yarn weights.) I'm also hoping to do some sewing this month

  • (For those following along at home, yes, this is the yarn that I originally bought to knit this shawl, and which I then with

  • it took me a little while to get back into the pattern, but now once again everything makes sense and it's just a matter of persevering the 4ply yarn and stocking stitch.i frogged the, btw, and restarted it in a bright green yarn ..

  • will you please remind me? posted by kris @ | Monday, August 21 warning if you don't like knitting socks, or drooling over sock yarn, or if your feet are too hot to fathom the idea of wearing wool ever again, this post is not for you

  • but if you're like me, and can wear wooly socks in the middle of summer, and have a sock yarn stash the size of, um, something embarrassingly big, then welcome! lookie here what i made! specs pattern: 's yarn: ' sock yarn, colourway budgie needles: 2.5mm addi turbos mods: knit toe up instead of top down, and with a garter stitch short-row heel instead of a flap heeli decided to knit these toe up so that i could use as much of the gorgeous yarn as possible without the risk of running out of yarn

  • i'm very happy with the garter stitch short-row heel; it fits well, is wonderfully cushiony and hopefully will be a bit more hardwearing than a stocking stitch one, which is a bonus when the yarn has no nylon content

  • I started this sock on Addis and switched to the Knitpicks, and that super pointy tip sure helps with the twists! It just gets right in there! They’re the “Traveler’s Stockings” from Knitting on the Road, in some superwash sock yarn I dyed, and I’m really liking it

  • I think I just might…the other thing is that I want to buy yarn for projects I want to knit

  • So I’ve got a plan, I think a doable one - no yarn buying till the Kitchener-Waterloo Knitter’s Fair, where I can buy some stuff; then, no yarn buying till Rhinebeck

  • This yarn is weird, in the sense that when I pull on it, it stays there and doesn't really snap back to where it was

  • After some dire warnings from about how poorly the same yarn has worn in her very own version, I took a long look at it and I can see the signs already

  • I'll probably do another Clap in a different yarn at some point soon

  • It's also one of the best uses for handpainted/variegated yarn I've seen

  • I'm really liking the yarn

  • I've started and unraveled a couple of projects out of their 100% kid mohair yarn, which is gorgeous but stiffer and harder to find a suitable pattern for

  • There's a wee bit of texture from the yarn, but not enough to be distracting, some slight variation in how the different fibers took the dye, and it feels divine

  • (You say delusional, I say ambitious.) And those are just the projects I'm thinking of where I already have stash yarn in mind

  • There's a whole other pile of magazines and leaflets with projects I don't have yarn picked out for yet
