Yarn Sub­sti­tu­tion

Creative Knitting - - THIS JUST IN - BY TABETHA HEDRICK

There have been plenty of times when I messed up in choos­ing a yarn. I knit a pair of mitts sev­eral years ago and, in the words of the knight to In­di­ana Jones in In­di­ana Jones and the Last Cru­sade, I “chose poorly.” In­stead of go­ing for a yarn of struc­ture and elas­tic­ity, I used a bam­boo fiber that re­sulted in a slip­pery, sloppy mess. What was I think­ing? The point is, we all go through trial and er­ror in the be­gin­ning, but the fol­low­ing tips (learned from my own mis­takes) will help pre­vent the same angst.
