I want a massive cowl. To get this I need a massive yarn. But I don’t want to spend a massive amount of money, which limits me to working from stash.
I tried to spin a super bulky and failed (though I got a gorgeous yarn which will definitely go to another wonderful project), so now I’m going to try to ply a super bulky.
Four strands of Classic Elite Yarns Waterlily plyed together - if that doesn’t give me the massive impact I want, I don’t know what will. But it does eat heavily into my beloved Water Lily stash, Water Lily that is now discontinued. (I remind myself that Water Lily wasn’t made to be hidden in my closet, it was made to be used…)
This will be my Iknitarod project - I will start spinning in just 17 minutes when the mushers take off from the ceremonial start out of Anchorage. The real start is tomorrow at Willow checkpoint, but I’d better not wait until then or I may not finish before the Red Lantern gets to Nome.
With massive affection,
