Flirting with the Camera
I always use laceweight/light fingering size threads, but I want to go even skinnier sometimes. I swatched up this yarn (to the left). It's a two-ply knitting yarn that is the size of #10 crochet thread. Seriously! You can see how considerably smaller the stitches are from the yarn on the right, especially the stripe. I didn't think it would knit properly on my machine, but decided to give it a try. It turned out great! Now I can't wait to make some things with super skinny yarns!
I decided to go with a slightly deeper color. It's called "Cocoa" and it's very rich and delicious! Dontcha think?! I saw this color and fell in love all over again! I love my original color choice also. It was such a match, but I have some unfinished business with that shade of yarn. That project was frogged quite a while ago, however, I still plan to reknit it. This thread is the same size as the swatch to the right in the photo above. The smaller thread is half the size of this strand. I think that puts it in perspective.
Does this look familiar? LOL! This picture was taken earlier this afternoon. I knit this up today. You'll be happy to know that I've made considerable progress just since this photo was taken. I've been slow in starting this project, so I'm trying to catch up by knitting the complete back today. I really need to start taking full advantage of this machine. You can really have a nice knit wardrobe if you own one of these!
Have a great weekend!
