...woke up this morning, no clap happenin' here...
Fellow clappers I am in despair. I clapped along at Flib's the other afternoon - got to grips with the stitches on my practice yarn. In JL yesterday I stood at the yarn section for like ... ever. The variagated stuff was the nicest, but having tried the 'cheek test' as advised, it was too scratchy. The softer stuff seemed only to come in plains. I couldn't decide. The final nail in the coffin came when I went to buy stitch counters (please, I'm too green to understand the purl a stitch concept yet) and they were sold out!
I left JL empty handed.
And logged onto Loop where I can at least dither in the privacy of my own home. Is there some sort of advanced astro physics logarithm involved in working out how much yarn I need? I realise there is a sort of weight to length ratio but...
I logged off empty handed.
Can someone please point me in the direction of some soft variagated yarn (iceberg grey/white would be good) and tell me how many balls I need?
Jen - I am so envious, you've finished yours!
