question for experienced fair isle knitters about yarn choice...
After finishing my first fair isle sweater, I am contemplating a vest. The Jamison Shetland yarn I used for this was very "sticky"...obviously a good quality for the steeks and color work. My question is whether you think this yarn: http://yarn.com/webs/0/0/0/0-1001-1294-1323/0/0/4452/ (100% Extrafine Merino superwash) would work. I'd like to design the vest using steeks for the armholes and a v-neck. I want to make sure a more "slippery" yarn will still work with steeks before I find out the hard way
