Today, I went to Yarnmarket & purchased some yarn for yet another project! This one's for my oldest daughter - her birthday is coming up & she has requested a very special knitted toy. After a great deal of back & forth, I ended up buying 4 balls of Berroco's Comfort DK. I was considering a wool, but I knit her an owl a while back in a wool blend and she said she doesn't like to snuggle with it because it's too scratchy. I know there is some debate among toy knitters what is the best type of yarn to knit with. I have made many knitted toys since I've been knitting for (almost) 7 years and I don't know the answer. But if she says wool is scratchy, then it won't be wool for this one!
The other yarn in the basket is Katia's Sevilla. I didn't even know about this yarn until I went to Yarnmarket & saw a sample. I was looking for a super shiny, metallic yarn & this one fits the bill nicely. These are all for the same toy.....any guesses what it might be?
I have a couple of knitting projects that are "due" at the end of the month, plus that really big project that I've been working on forever & I'm just ready to be done with it! So hopefully, I'll get lots of knitting time in this weekend! Fingers crossed!
Have a great weekend everyone!
