thirty-third skein and the BFL Earwarmer Band
One windy day recently, I came home and spun and knit this earwarmer in one sitting.
one ounce of Blue Face Leicester from Louet
singles spun about 28 wpi
finished 2 ply yarn is about 10 wpi
Cast on 96 stitches using long tail cast on with double point needles, knit 2 purled 2 around, then bound off.
Should learn to do a more stretchy cast on, and could have used a bit more yardage.
No laddering with K2P2 the way there is with my stockingette knit in the round on dpns, which is good.
