I am not sure if you all know, but I have an ETSY shop. Yea, little ole me, folks kept asking do I sell what I make and since I was unemployed I said to myself “self, you may as well try” so that’s how GGmadeitbyhand was born. What that also means is it’s just me, so the faster I can pump out the product the better; insert my love for bulky/chunky yarn. Outside of the fact that big yarn just presents the stitch in such a trendy way and uh I am lazy! LOL there I said it. I am the CEO of #teamlazyashell! I mean I have made things on small needles, but those are once in a lifetime events. I swear to you I will NOT revisit! LOL why do you ask? Well it takes too long. I like to grab my big babies (needles/hooks) and make music. Boy oh boy I love it when it works up fast.
For example, yesterday morning this happened, I had an order for a scarf and uh who has time for going back and forth on small needles? Not I, said the lazy one.
I had some Lion Brand Hometown USA, I held 2 strands together, I chained 100, I did HDC in the back loop and sixty minutes later POW!!! Then yesterday afternoon, when I looked in a bag of yarn (I have so many laying around) and found some Premier Yarn Mega Tweed *insert cheesy grin* I mean the label said Mega, that meant I HAD to knit with it right then..as soon as I found it!! Soo I grabbed the us50s and with the yarn doubled of course, I went to work..
After maybe an hour or two (I stopped to cook dinner and respond to FB, Twitter & IG) we had what I thought was a winner. I was envisioning a neck warmer that I could add a button to or something..but that didn’t work..so I seamed it up and I wasn’t happy.
although nice it wasn’t what I was going for; so I took it apart. The beauty of big yarn and big needles is you can do that and still end up with a finished product.
This, my friends, is why I go chunky/bulky super bulky even and if I don’t have it, I will make it. I will hold as many strands together as needed. Ha! try and stop my lazy if you want…you will FAIL! LOL!
Knit on my fiber friends, knit on
