Polar opposite yarns   2 comments

The yarn I am using for the CAL is Lamb’s pride bulky – it is soft and smooth and BIG. Once I finish each week’s rows, I go back to my knitting WIP – a linen stitch scarf, done in lace weight wool/silk blend, hand dyed by Linda at PineStar Studio. It’s on size 7 (US) needles, and the row gauge is about 14 rows to the inch. Yup, you read that right, and I typed it right. So when you look at this scarf, you know, it has many rows and much time into it. My plan was to keep going at it until I run out of yarn. The skein is 300 yards. I hope I live that long.

It will be beautiful when it is done. I will be ancient when it is done.
