  • I should be grading the sweater that I stayed up way too late finishing last night- but my brain would rather be knitting!
So how about a fun little trick share instead?!?
I love marling yarn (holding two or more strands of yarn together as one), but sometimes it can be tricky to know what yarn weight I have achieved with my multi-strand play! So lately I’ve been wrapping my planned yarns held together around this handy “wraps per inch” ruler to gauge my approximate marled yarn weight and it’s been so helpful!
For instance, this Rustic Heather Sport and Marsh Mohair Lace from @lichenandlace comes out to right around a DK weight! Now I have a better idea of what needle size I want to start swatching with!
Just imagine- even if you don’t have the correct yarn weight called for in a pattern, you might be able to just stash dive and create what you need right from your collection by marling them!
This particular gauge ruler is made by @katrinkles_knitting_jewelry and I purchased it at @fancytigercrafts 🥰

  • WIP Wednesday. Working on a Sockhead hat. Yarn is one of my own. It was my Easter 2016 colorway, called Some Bunnies Just Wanna Have Fun. I dyed a skein of MCN 2-ply a while back and had it in my stash. I wasn’t sure if it would be ok as a beanie with it being as variegated as it is, but I’m LOVING how it’s knitting up!  To bad I hate ribbing and I have another few files of it left to knit.  Also, I was going to dye some self striping today, but something went terribly wrong, and I ended up with the most horrific tangled mess. Thankfully, between my mom and I, we were able to unravel the rats nest and it’s back on the warping board. I’ll try again tomorrow!  #wipwednesday #knittersofinstagram #knitting #knitstagram #sockheadhat #tangledyarn #knitterspridezing #happychappyshoppe
