Yarn from Lauren

May 10, 2006

My friend Lauren sent me this for my birthday a while back.

Heirloom Cotton Yarn
It’s Heirloom Cotton yarn “Breeze” in a lavender and a light sage green. Sorry the colors suck in the pictures. Its a worsted weight and has some stretch to it. I have close to 200 yards.
I’m not sure what I’m going to do with it yet, any ideas?

    Ya know, I’ve been milling around “what to do with the heirloom yarn” question….and I looked at the fiber content of the yarn. It kind of reminds me of cascade’s fixation, which is cotton and elastic…except yours is wool/cotton/lycra, and I assume the lycra gives it the stretch.

    I’ve used fixation to make footie slipper sox. Like tennis sox, basically…and I used one color for the body of the sock, and another for the toe, heel, and tiny little ribbed cuff. I’ve also used it to make two pint sized ice cream cozies!

    But that would be my thought…is there anything you want to cover that is small and would benefit from a little stretch?

    You could also make a little bag or something..eyeglass case, little purse, something to hold knitting or violin widgets in ;-)

    Happy knitting…and congrats on the Magknits pattern! Cant wait to see it!

    I like the idea of doing something that needs a little stretch. It’s a little too thick for socks, they would definitely be slipper socks if I used them for that. Orignally I was going to make a cropped cardigan, but Lauren couldn’t get more, so that’s out of the question. It’s also discontinued. Thanks for the ideas. I think they got my gears turning.
