1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Pondering a Sweater...Any thoughts? on: September 27, 2013 09:58:22 AM
I'm looking to start a wee little sweater that has a pattern suggesting a fluffy mohair yarn.  However, I have a really nice merino/silk blend that I'm itching to use (and no mohair for that matter...), and I'm wondering if that is a viable substitution (same weight/ply/etc as suggested mohair).  I know the feel will be totally different, but I'm more concerned about merino/silk being too heavy for a mohair pattern....
Really what I'm saying is I'm not used to merino/silk blends, and don't want to make this sweater only to have it weigh 1,000 lbs and be terrible =P
Any opinions?
2  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / 'Ello, 'ello =) on: September 26, 2013 12:31:00 PM
Hey there, I just joined the craftster world after oogling at all the lovely projects for a while =)
My primary craft would be knitting (sooo much love), but I'm also rather fond of embroidery, and I dabble with crochet (nothing super fancy and awesome as of yet).
I also make soap and candles, scrapbook, and play around with whatever else seems fun at the time.  I spend arguably too much time on Pinterest and Ravelry, and have a pitbull that I'm madly in love with. =P
Hope to get to know some awesome people, and I'll 'see' you guys around!
xoxo
