I doubt it would be a waste of yarn! But, of course, you have shops available that sell similar yarns, so you could probably pick up just one small skein somewhere and give it a try.
I know that people find them very difficult to work with, but for me they aren't that bad. I think of it as Braille knit/crochet... just work by feel rather than sight and it seems to go well. Adding a thin yarn alongside seems to act as "training wheels" and in my mind, that is because it helps you "feel" the stitches.
I hope you give some a try, but either way, your work is wonderful, and we definitely want to see more.
Hi, Diana .... No kidding , I will gladly send you some of the fluffy yarn. I have several small cakes of fluffy yarn in a pretty turquoise blue, an olive green, and a bright red. I didn't find these particular yarns all that difficult to work with, and they are really soft. These also have a little white puff every so often, so I call them marshmallow yarns.
If there is a way that you can securely send me an address, I'll get them mailed to you in a day or so.
Hi Diana, lovely to hear that the pattern worked for you. At first I couldn't think which pattern you were referring to and now I see that it is the very easy beanie. A long while ago I was asked if there was a way that beginner knitters could make a hat with no shaping and that was the outcome.
Thanks for your generous compliments as always. As I type your lovely pictures are coming before me, always so very neat and well made. I'm especially liking your hand-warmers as that's what I'm doing at present. Always looking for ways to use up odds and ends they are ideal and the variety is endless. I have so many squares (other people's mainly) to mail that I'm trying not to add to the problem for a while. Perhaps I'll make some hats for a change!
Thank You so much for letting me know about my big square showing up in a blanket. It is such a thrill to see our work in a complete form. That square really dominates the blanket, so I hope some child (probably a boy) likes the "toy" he got.
Thanks for your good wishes for 2017, the very same back to you! I hope you have a wonderful year ahead of many interesting and fun challenges and good times of love, laughter and hugs with family and friends.
