Mixing quality yarn w/cheaper yarn..
Hi all...I started this question somewhere,and it poofed on me,so if you find it pls. let me know.
I have 4skeins of a pretty blue yarn from Lion brand. I've been told that it's a 'cheapie',and that the Chenile will 'grow' twice what you make it once it's done. I really am not that brave to knit my heart out for two months,and have it be ugly...so I thought what I would do is combine it with a quality cotton yarn,knit it double,and use up my quality extra and make a nice coverlet..Question is can you combine a cotton quality yarn,with a not so quality (so says my knitting class) and have it come out well?I'm hopefull that I can use this for a good,and satisfying project,have it look good,and be of some use.
The chenile is called 'thick and quick prints/lion brand/91%acrylic 9% rayon.
the cotton would be 100% cotton
thanks abunch~wholycow;o)
