In February, I bought two beautiful, rainbow-y cakes of this yarn off Etsy from a shop called BambooMN (not affiliated but I love small businesses.)
With the intent that I might crank out some socks on my Sentro knitting machine. Well that was a flop, not because the yarn doesn't work in the machine but, because it was way too thin. STILL, I wanted to use it for something nice and I wasn't so sure that I wanted to make an Airways shawl at that time.
So I frogged it! And that pile of thin fiber sat on my craft table for a few weeks until I got the bright idea to cast on. Being the silly goose that I am, I decided to use the wooden circulars that I never use and I must say, they are an acquired taste. So I did what any other sensible Crafty would do: I bought new ones! They're ChiaoGoo Red Lace circular 60 inch stainless steel knitting needles in size US 2 (2.75mm). I've always had a strong preference for metal needles. 😅
A little bit about this yarn:
Name: Jubilee Yarn Ombre Blast
Color: 106 - Something Wild
Content: 60% Cotton, 40% Acrylic
Yardage: +/- 990m/1082yds
Gauge: Knitting - US 2 (2.75mm)
Crochet - ( I recommend a 2mm)
Needless to say, I'm designing something new! Just going off the yarn alone, it'll be a summery project though I'm not sure that I'll be done with this in summer of '21. I have only worked with yarn this thin twice now in all the years I've been crafting, last time I crocheted with it, now I'm knitting. More likely than not, this will be another of my ill-timed pattern releases in the future. 🤣
What would you make with this lacy bundle of joy?
