The pattern calls for 1 skein of Wollmeise Lacegarn and I happen to have a fair amount of that in my stash, so I selected a skein and got knitting.
That’s Wollmeise Lacegarn in the “Spice Market” colorway. That photo shows my progress as of yesterday morning.
Here it is as of this morning.
Notice anything different? 🙂
For whatever reason, I was just not feeling the love with the Wollmeise yarn. Odd, since the original was knit with that. So I ripped it out last night and restarted it using Kauni Effektgarn 8/2 in the Rainbow colorway. Yes, I am knitting with rainbow yarn . . . again. I am more than a little obsessed with this yarn.
I wound up a skein that weighed 238 grams, which by my reckoning is around 1050 yards. I have plenty more rainbow yarn in stash, so if I reach the end of this skein and don’t feel as though my Viajante is long enough, I can keep on knitting.
Viajante is a pattern that is very easy to adjust. I went up a couple of needle sizes for the re-knit because the Kauni yarn is heavier than the Wollmeise Lacegarn. So instead of using U.S. size 3 and 4, I am using size 5 and 6.
So that will be my weekend knitting.
If I stay in Momma’s lap she can’t get up and go away this weekend!
