View Full Version : What would you suggest a newbie do w/NY yarns Wild Thing?

So I have 3 skeins each of 2 colors, and plans to make........something. Hopefully 2 somethings, keeping the colors separate. Or if it's enough for 3, I'd do 3 somethings, combining colors on one of 'em.

I did just make a cool dish cloth this one (http://www.jimsyldesign.com/~dishbout/kpatterns/dbldmnd.html) so I can do a bit of fun stuff, I guess, and I'm willing to be a tad adventurous. :)

What do you think? I'm looking at KnitPicks Suri Dream Throw (1 2 3 lace) and I think it looks doable - my wild things yarn should be comparable, right? But I only have 3 of each color.........hmm.........a smaller shawl or longer scarf? Whadda think?

Are you looking for a pattern? I'm slightly confused..which yarn will you be using? I've never heard of the first one.

Sorry for the confusion! Yes, I was looking for a pattern to use the NY Yarns Wild Thing (http://store.knitting-warehouse.com/yarn-new-york-yarn-wild-thing-yarn.html) yarn.

However, I have solved my own dilemma, and am almost half way to turning the yarn into the Basic Party Wrap (http://knitting.about.com/od/knittingpatterns/p/partywrap.htm) :cheering:

However, I should have never picked a thick/thin yarn as a newbie - trying to watch my stitches has me :zombie: and I had to :frog: at bit at the beginning, but it's going well now! :mrgreen:
