I read this book a couple of years ago. I already knew how to knit at that time, but I hadn’t been as involved as I am now. I’d been on a bit of a knitting break as well, so the concept of self-striping yarn was completely new to me. I was intrigued!
So, I picked up my needles again, and I have used self-striping yarn for several pairs of socks and a pair of mittens since. I like it a lot. It gives a buzz to your socks without having to think about a pattern. Perfect for knitting very quickly in front of the tv. Or on the train after a long day’s work. It also gives me a buzz: I just want to knit on and on to see how the yarn will knit up.
Self-striping yarns I’ve used up till now are:
- Schachenmayr nomotta’s Catania
- Gedifra’s Fiorista Fino
- Schachenmayr nomotta’s Regia World Ball Color 4ply
- Garnstudio’s DROPS Fabel
- ONline’s Supersocke 100 Sportive Color
