1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / thoughts on a unique ball of yarn? on: May 10, 2009 05:44:14 PM

 i got some really nifty hand-knotted yarn at a craft fair and i don't know what to do with it. It's composed of pieces of lace and ribbon and skinny yarn and fat yarn all tied togeter, making the gauge random. There's not a super lot of it, so the project would have to be on the small side. I'm sure there's something out there that would inspire me to use this unique ball of yarn, just need some help locating it. any thoughts?

I love the book.  It's very readable and clear with lots of techniques that make it a good addition to the Stitch and Bitch books.  I love the lil red riding hoodie pattern! I hope to attempt it soon, when I figure out what kind of yarn to use.  All in all, I definately don't regret my purchase.

I'm not sure - I don't think cotton would have much 'give' - and it's tough going to knit with. If you knit it a size bigger it might work - but then what if it just looks too big?

What about a cotton blend?

Unfortunately, you may be right.  Although, the blue sky alpaca cotton doesn't feel like any other cotton yarn that I've seen.  it seems to have a little more give than, say, sugar and cream.    Huh

I know this is an old thread, but anybody interested in making one of these?  I was thinking that since summer is on its way--At least I'm pretending it is--that this one could be knit in cotton.   I'm thinking Blue Sky Alpaca dyed cotton.  Does anyone think that would work? Or would it just stretch out too much?  I've never knit with cotton before, and I'm dying to try the Blue Sky cotton.  It's so soft and plushy!

This seems pretty straight forward. Good luck with your bag! I heart felting stuff.

Valutree-- I seriously can't wait to see your version of the hoodie.  

I keep checking knitpicks for a good yarn sub for the Karabella recommended in the pattern (with the aurora bulky it's like a $200 dollar sweater).  I'm just being really indecisive.  Undecided   $2.99 is so cheap!  man, I gotta figure this out.

Hey there,

Has anyone knit "little red riding hoodie," from the Domiknitrix book?  I'm seriously considering knitting it and even went yarn browsing today. Just wanted to test the waters before I took a plunge and bought a bunch of yarn.  I'd love to hear how other people's sweaters turned out, problems with the pattern or yarn substitution ideas!

I am a knitter in Oakland Ca. Looking for a spinning class.  Any Bay Area spinners have any recommendations? I'm willing to commute, so the class could be in the surrounding area (not necessarily in Oakland, just somewhere sort of nearby.)  Any help/ advice would be much appreciated!
