I finally decided to make Georgina next, and I started on the back last night. I do occasionally love a chunky knit – this is working up so fast!
The Cascade 128 is nice so far. I only have two negatives – first, that it shows a tension difference between my knit and purl rows (but this usually evens out in blocking) and second that the felted join is not a good choice here.
It’s not a huge thing, but it’s going to bug me, so I’m going to rip back and just do a regular join. I’m getting slightly over 3.5 st/in on size 10 needles. The pattern calls for 3.5, but I wanted a smaller size anyway, so it’s working out well.
In other news… I think I have reached the point of needing to get rid of some of my stashed yarn again. If there’s one thing that can be said for me, it’s that I’m a stasher but not a hoarder. I love to buy yarn, but if it doesn’t work for me for some reason I want it out (the lack of space we currently have may be contributing… just a bit.) Most of this yarn is in sweater amounts. I will make a sale post later, probably tonight, but in the meantime here’s what I want to leave my house!
