Decided to be a cliche this week and post a WIP Wednesday.
I started the Navona Cardigan on the 1st of February with the Woolly Mammoth Knits KAL, which you can find at the link below on Ravelry.
I used some stash fingering weight yarn I received as a gift from the lovely knitters in Ithaca (Thanks again! I am currently making plans among plans to use all the colorful yarn you gave me!)
The main color is Dove Heather colorway of Knit Picks Stroll, of which I have 5 balls.
The contrast color is a beautiful turquoise in Brown Sheep Wildefoote.
It's proved to be a very good "multi-tasking" project. I've worked on it while listening to podcasts, watching the super bowl, listening to lectures and therefore got a good chunk done already.
|This is not the most updated photo (probably about half of what is actually done) but I've been lazy and haven't gotten a new photo yet|
I've gotten to the point where I divide for the sleeves and then I will start the first stripe of color, which after all that grey, I'll welcome :)
I have paused on it, because though it is probably a stupid question, I'm not sure what kind of yarn is best to use for waste yarn. Normally I just use whatever I have available but what I have is worsted weight or a very thin/weak fingering weight that broke on me the last time I used it as waste yarn. Most of my stash is at home (I'm at school right now) so I don't have a lot of options as to what to use.
Do you have yarn you specifically use for waste yarn or do you just use leftovers?
What characteristics make a good waste yarn?
