What was the yarn that you used on the first sweater that you knitted?
Just idle curiosity. I'm an avid follower of the stash train and I've seen a reference or two in the forum (not necessarily there) about people who find yarn they love and buy it in "sweater quantities". :noway:
I don't even know what that is!
I need to make a sweater and find out!
Anyway, I'm thinking about planning a sweater and using a cotton blend -- maybe cotton/acrylic or something else machine washable -- and I am also thinking that I should just go cheap and use straight acrylic for my first attempt to get some practice in before I splurge on a nicer yarn. :think:
Since I'm still in the thinking stages, I am no where near making any kind of decision, but it did get me to wondering what other people used when they attempted a sweater for the first time.
So, share please. :teehee: What kind of yarn did you use the first time you knitted a sweater? How big was it? Adult, child, baby, doll? Do you have a favorite yarn or pattern now?
