I just finished a big, fat, fabulous throw designed by Knit Collage, using their Sister – super bulky, thick/thin 100% unplied wool yarn – doubled!
It is not exactly knit because is done on 36″ #50 needles! The gigantic needles are a little bit like baseball bats (poetic license) and the process is not fluid or rhythmical. But that is the “bad news”. All the rest makes it absolutely, positively worth doing.
Despite all of those “nots”, the final product is quite fabulous. The throw is dreamy, divine, soft and cushy warm. It knits up so quickly you can hardly believe it is finished.
Everyone needs a great big fabulous hug. This throw – and the others like it that we can show you in the Shop – are just the ticket. You want the perfect gift for your home, a big splash of color or a spectacular gift? This will do it for you. They knit up as fast as you can say “I hate #50 needles.”
It may not be “really knitting” but it is creative and glorious. Join us to make fabulous BIG blanket in the NEXT BIG THING KAL on Saturday, November 4 from 1-3. Come in to choose the yarn and pattern that suits you best. Can’t come into the Shop? Give us a call and we’ll help you on your way to your next big thing!
