After many, many years of knitting by hand and machine, I have collected yards and yards of yarn. Maybe more like miles and miles. This past year, I focused on knitting small amounts. Random yarns, 100 gm to 200 gm or so balls. The hats and scarves pile up. Some knit by hand, others by knitting machine.
Cone yarns, most of them will make up into bigger projects. In the distant past, when I was designing and making up collections of garments, it was prudent to by large quantities, (read lbs) in order to have enough to experiment and not run out. In time they accumulated. Yarn for the most part, doesn’t go bad. It is the fashion colours that change from year to year……….
My PROJECT, this time is using multistrands of yarn and colour combinations and textures. This produced a thick yarn and is meant to be knitted on large dia (10mm) knitting needles. I’ve been knitting it straight off the cones. A designated knitting chair was chosen, the Seed stitch, and onto the cast-on of 51 stitches.
At this point I haven’t decided the final outcome. A bath mat, or a wall hanging, or an afghan/throw………or what………stay tuned for the finale, I will post a picture.
