Since finishing those three Iowa scarves on Friday, I've found it hard to concentrate on a knitting project. Well, actually, this would be the reason. Mona Lisa and her mom and dad were here so we have been having just a ball with them all and some family gatherings.
After they left today, I decided to pull out a little top that I cast on after camp. I just had this little bit of yarn left on the first ball to knit with and I thought I would get it out and at least finish the ball, then put it away until next year.
Before putting it away, I thought it might be a good time to move it to some other needles, and not tie might Chiagoo Interchangeables in Size 6 for a half of a year. Come to find out, I like these old Addi's better for the Berroco Linus yarn. There is a bit of more drag on the Addis and they are not as pointy as the Chiagoos. Normally, I love my Chiagoos, but for this semi ladder like yarn, they sometimes catch those little holes which can be annoying.
I'm not real sure I am ready to put this one away yet, if I would seriously knit on it, I may be able to wear it at least one time this Fall over a long sleeve shirt.
My conclusion was that I wasn't real crazy about them for this yarn. Yes, there was a bit more drag, but it really wanted to drag way too much over the join, something I really dislike when I am knitting a fairly easy knit.
The second conclusion is that the yarn is just way too dark on the Harmonies. I can knit in the dark very well, but this one I occasionally need to see what is going on and they just were not what I wanted to feel in my hands. So, I've knitted it back onto the original needles for now.
Now for the final conclusion, is this what I want to be knitting on?
