I've got an idea for a sweater vest that will be knit in strips.
The yarns I'm considering are:
Noro Kureyon in Color 32 (discontinued)
Noro Kureyon in Color 53
Noro Kujaku in Color 2
I have completed a sample in color 32 and like the colors but need to change the needle size. Recommended needle size is 8 and I swatched on a 4. It's too tight. So I'll go up to a 6 or 7. I'm thinking the stitch pattern needs to be relaxed a bit. Test swatching can be fun.
I've been wondering about your carry-a-long projects. I've been knitting a lot of cotton washcloths. What do you like to take with you and knit?
