Starting Over

I've set aside the scarf I've been working on. It's slow going with medium worsted weight yarn and size 10 needles. I will finish it while on the road, but in the meantime I wanted to do something a little faster.

I bought some super bulky Red Heart Light & Lofty yarn and size 15 needles so I can work through a bit quicker project. I started it with size 17 needles but didn't like the way it was looking so unraveled it and restarted on the 15s.

It's definitely coming along much quicker, but I'm finding this extra fuzzy yarn a bit more difficult to work with as it doesn't slide as easily.

Ah well, that's why they call it practice.

Mason - you are a natural knitter! One can tell by the startitis setting in early.

A suggestion - you might want to try the 15's or 17's with a lighter weight yarn - you may like the look, you might not.

I've been known to use 13's with lace-weight.(to the horror of some)

MMario - I'm not divorced from reality - we're having a trial separation

Thanks MMario. I'll experiment with different weights/needle sizes.
