View Full Version : Question about yarn usage

03-12-2006, 07:36 PM
I am making this Noro Kureyon sweater - the original pattern called for 12 skeins of Noro. I was making the pattern a good 6 inches shorter than the original....and bought 10 skeins upon LYS suggestion.

So, I am up to the armpits front and back, and my sleeves are 2/3 done. I have approximately 3 skeins left, and this is a turtleneck! I am thinking I am definitely going to need more - don't you think?

It will be close, but you might be ok. I'm assuming that you'll be getting smaller from this point on? I think I'd wait until I was down to one skein to make a final commitment. Actually, that's my advice to YOU. I'd probably run out and buy more and have too much left over. :rollseyes:

But if you had left overs you could use the extra to make a matching head-band / ear warmer thingy majig.

If I had leftovers, it probably wouldnt be end of the world, as I could use it for some booga variation. I am going to wait and see. LYS is out of the colorpath I am using, however yarnbow on ebay has it for a fairly reasonable price with quick delivery. I AM going to check my stash - and make sure I don't have another skein or so stashed away.

My NEXT sweater is so not going to be done on size 7 needles!
