|Summertime drinking and beauty yarn.|
I'm a woman of yarn weight extremes.
In the photo above you'll see two different project I've had on the needles in recent weeks. One super bulky, the other fingering.
There's something about these two extremes that attracts me. With the bulky, I get to satisfy that desire for speed, for something done right now. The magic of just two stitches giving you an inch of width, that luscious single ply fatness giving a texture that's so graphic and eye catching.
With the fingering, the texture is the very opposite: it's unassuming. It blends in. When I wear garments I've knit in fingering, they feel "right". Comfortable, like a second skin. Knitting with that weight is graceful, and the length of time to create with it is meditative and soothing.
It's these two weights that really do it for me.
How about you? Do you agree? What's YOUR yarn weight?
