Try This – Different Yarns

Posted by lori . 9 Comments

This month, I’m playing around with spool knitting.  I’m using two different spool knitters…the more traditional French Knitting Bee, and the mechanical Embellish-Knit!  Using a variety of yarns, here’s what I got:

With the Embellish-Knit!

Deborah Norville Collection Serenity Sock Weight Yarn – Paprika (Weight – Super Fine 1)

Vanna’s Glamour – Bronze (Weight – Fine 2)

 

Lion Brand Yarn Fun Fur – Raspberry (Weight – Bulky 5)

Note – This was a big “no-no.”  Only thin yarns (3 and below) should be used in the Embellish-Knit!

With the French Knitting Bee

Patons Be Mine – Plushy Pink (Weight – Bulky 5)

Loops & Threads Impeccable – Grass (Weight – Medium 4)

 

Loops & Threads Impeccable – Summerset Ombre (Weight – Medium 4)

Now, what to do with my knitted tubes?
