I've been in a bit of a knitting slump lately. I'm bored, and all I've seemed to be doing the past few months is either stockinette or garter stitches. That's going to change.
I hate it when my knitting gets boring. There's no reason it should ever get that way. Sooo, I pulled out a couple of skeins of Alchemy Haiku. Would up one - I got a bot worried when it appeared to be prying off a stand of Velcro, but once things got rolling on the swift, it came right off.
I wound, and I wound, and wound some more. My right arm got tired so I switched to my left. Got in a decent arm workout, anyway. Finally, I ended up with a skein of 325 yards of super-static-y fuzzy gorgeousness. Then got to wondering exactly what weight this stuff was - the wound ball was about the size of my palm -actually, it fits inside my palm with lots of room, and I don't have very big hands.
So I went online and googled the yarn. Came up with some interesting results - one site said it was a DK weight, another said it was a light worsted, and another said it was lace weight. Went to the Alchemy site, which said nothing about the yarn weight. Hmm...
Now that that's been cleared up right muddy, I need to find a pattern that will work. The ball label gave a gauge of 5 stitches per inch on a size 7 needle, so I'm going to go with that. Maybe. Kind of.
Wish me luck!
