Jan, those are all great, but looks like the yarn is worsted or at least the same weight. Do you think I can mix weights? If so do I change needle sizes or just keep going on the same needles when I change yarns with different weights?
Ps. I have really been into selling my stuff, I know a bunch of you warned me against it, but it is nice to make some extra money on the side every now and then from something that I made. I even did 2 craft sales this winter.
Cool! If you actually make a bit of money and enjoy it, that's wonderful! I'm very pleased for you.
What concerns me about your mixing yarns is that you said you don't know the type. Some might have different care requirements than others depending on fiber content and mixing them could maybe be a problem. You could try doing two strands of the same or different colors to help even out the thinner yarns to better match the thicker ones. If you go to youtube and look for how to knit a mitered square you'll get a number of videos to choose from. My data speed has been throttled or I'd look it up for you.
