I was in a little 2nd hand store and bought 150 grams of what I think is wool or wool blend. The 3 skeins cost me 1.50 Euros. About $2. Now, My question is: What to make with this yarn, (can’t get more) It’s pink tweed, (no labels) I have no idea of meters or yards, Was thinking of hats or scarves or Mobius but Would I have enough or too much? What to do with left-overs?
How lucky are you, to have travelled so far and come home with a wooly treasure!
Not an expert by any means, but I think that would surely be enough for a scarf of some sort. I’ve been knitting up a boatload of scarves, they make such great gifts!
When I send one to a friend (usually ‘just for fun’) I include a little note saying “this is a small hug from a friend”. One woman says it helped her get through a cold, difficult winter, wearing it daily, even inside the house!
You can make a scarf narrow and long, or wide and short, or wide and narrow…etc…
Maybe I can help. The lable of that wool / yarn surely gives SOME information, doesn’t it?
German products usually have meters per 50 g labled and have the swatch numbers for stitches and rows on a 10 by 10 cm square…
just handmade stuff may not have any of this info.
But if you know the name and / or the maker of that wool / yarn… I will ask my aunt Google to take a look at it. Since I am German I may find stuff that you can not read much of
Can you scan or photograph the lable, maybe? Or at least give brand and type?
With NO information it is hard to give advice on projects… but a scarf should always work with 150 g.
Edit: just saw: no lables… make a swatch, pull out the needle, weigh it. Then you know how much that much knitting weighs. Is that any idea for you?
I knitted this Debbie Bliss Teddy with about 120 g and because it is made of seperate pieces, if you feel you have run out of yarn before you are finished you could always do a contrasting nose, ears etc
Those teddys are so cute. I’m just not sure I would like to do a teddy out of wool. I think I have to use it for a hat or scarf. There is a beret pattern around here somewhere done in loose cables that I really like. But, thanks for the idea.
I bought a hat pattern not too long ago that I really like. You probably would have just enough. If you were worried about it, you could do the headband out of a contrast color.
Also, if you needed to check the gauge I have seen these tools:
