There is no right way to knit; there is no wrong way to knit. So if anybody kindly tells you that what you are doing is "wrong," don't take umbrage; they mean well. Smile submissively, and listen, keeping your disagreement on an entirely mental level. They may be right, in this particular case, and even if not, they may drop off pieces of information which will come in very handy if you file them away carefully in your brain for future reference. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman
Thanks everybody! I just used one strand of Lamb's Pride. I experimented several times with gauge on this project until I got it to 3 st per inch. My almost daughter-in-law is tiny(size 0/2) and I wanted to get it right. This bulky weight came out fine on size 13 needles. I did one with 11's and it was so small I am going to give it to our granddaughter! My LYS did one of these as a sample for the store and mine matches it in size. It fits one of the sales people who is about the same size as my DIL. Sooooooooooooo I went with it. I love the yarn even though I am allergic to wool and couldn't wear it myself. Felt like "warm butter" to knit. She is a natural blonde (imagine that!) and I think the color will be great. I am a relative "newbie" so all of this is trial by error........and lots of error!!!!!!!!!!
Heaven help you if you're not as smart as your Corgi!!
