The only problem with tacking onto another thread is that it's often overlooked. People see the thread and think they've already read it so it's usually best to create a new thread.
So, my questions are:
1. Will using garter instead of stockinette change the gauge (dumb question) :oops:
It may change it some, but if it's not clothing I don't see it as a problem.
- Does garter stitch use more yarn than stockinette? I only have the two skeins and can't get more, so I want to maximise the mileage of the yarn. :XX:
I don't think garter uses more than stockinette. Cables and some other stitches use more, but I think you'll be fine for a bag.
- Does garter felt as easy/hard as stockinette? (although I hand felted my swatch, I'll probably machine felt the bag)
Garter felts just as well as stockinette. I've done one of each and I didn't see much difference.
