Okay, I have no idea if anyone even reads this blog on a regular basis, but for those of you who may stumble by at random, I got a question for ya!
I’m trying to follow the Knit From Your Stash challenge, and to do that, I’m thinking that I need to find a plan for the yarn that is currently occupying corners, boxes, underbed storage crates, and the bin(s) in my attic! Yikes! If only I could challenge myself to see how long I could go, exactly, without buying more yarn. I bed it’d be a looooooooooong time! :O)
And I decided that it matched something I’d picked up at the Maryland Sheep and Wool a couple years back.
It’s called “Potpourri” and it’s made with “a little this and a little that” probably mostly “that” as in nylon, acrylic, poly, etc. Man-made fibers, definitely – possibly with some linen thrown in for luxury. It feels nice.
But, I’m thinking the two should go together somehow. . .maybe just a good idea for one or both alone?
Anyone have any ideas? There’s approximately 700 yards combined – each skein says it has about 100 yards (4 skeins of the corn, 3 of the potpourri). The gauge is not marked for the Potpourri, but the corn knits up at 20sts/26sts to 4″ on an 8, so that’s about DK/light worsted weight, yes? The potpourri seems a bit finer but I need to wind it and swatch first. It’s a hard thing to do – wind and swatch when you have no idea what you are knitting.
So, if you read, and if you have any brilliant ideas, please let me know your opinions. I’d love to figure out a good plan for this yummy yarn. I want to do something useful with the corn, definitely.
Thanks for reading!
