Thank you for adding me. I have already found some useful information.
I am somewhat of a beginner so I am still having trouble with some basic concepts. I am knitting a lace scarf and the tension seems a little tight although I am coming up with the correct width of the scarf. I am thinking that I need to increase my needle size by maybe 2 sizes to give it an airier feel. I am wondering if I will be using significantly more yarn by doing this. I only have 250 yards of this yarn and the pattern indicates that with this amount of yarn, the scarf will only be 40 inches long. I am fearful of ending up with a scarf that is too short to be useful.
Any thoughts would be helpful. I am using alpaca yarn that was pretty expensive and I am not sure how it will hold up to being torn out until I get the feel I want.
