View Full Version : Big Needle Knits

06-23-2008, 10:47 AM
I was at a yarn store the other day...and I fell in love with some hand dyed wool/silk. It was semi expensive, but I was willing to go back and buy some if I could find a good project.

The packaging suggested 12 mm needles for the project.

Any suggestions of what I might do with no more than 200 gm of really big wool?

(It is about $15 a skein, and a skein is about 100gms. I am recently unemployed...so I can't go over board..*smiles*)

Thanks for any advice!

There are oodles of books on big knits... I love 'em..they are so fast and easy. It's great for a wrap or an afghan!!

Here again is the time to surf Ravelry and see what others have done.

It is hard to look things up by needle size though....

What is the next tact?
