I admit, I was reckless. I thought – ‘I’ve knitted a couple of lace shawls now, and a couple of lace blankets: lace knitting and all its yarns can hold no terrors for me’. I was wrong. This arrived yesterday.
My 4,500m (that’s four and a half kilometres of yarn, or the entire distance from my house to the other side of the city) of single ply Jamieson & Smith Shetland Supreme cobweb weight yarn. The yarn sitting next to it is standard 2ply. It’s thinner than I thought wool could conceivably be spun. So skinny it looks like anything I knit with it will be completely transparent. Gulp. I think I will need to think carefully and with an absence of recklessness about what I actually knit with this scary stuff.
