I'm using Knit Picks Shine Worsted yarn in the grass color. This yarn was recommended for this pattern by one of my fellow Knitting Help forum members since I didn't want to spend a fortune on Debbie Bliss yarn. It's not that I'm cheap - this is a baby cardigan and will only probably be worn a handful of times before it's outgrown - I'm practical.
While I'm on the topic of yarn, can I express my displeasure with the amount in each skein?
Pitiful! This is a brand new ball of 75 yards! The color is beautiful, the textured stitches are sowing up nicely, it's super soft - but only 75 yards! This means I'll have to sew in a ton of ends. Ugh. I wish they would make these in larger sizes - I had to buy 10 balls for this baby set (1 extra just in case). Gracie is lending her paw to show how little yarn there is.
Other than that I'm very satisfied with how this is knitting up so far. I did receive my blocking wires over the weekend and I hope to block out my lace scarf finally this afternoon with pictures to follow tomorrow!
