I realized my Doctor Who scarf probably wouldn't be done before winter was up, so I knitted a floofy scarf on big needles:

Cute! It is a great color. What kind of yarn did you use?

Just cheap super bulky acrylic, Michael's Loops and Thread brand. One of these days I'll be able to afford dropping cash on decent yarn.

Ha. You can hear me say the exact same thing practically every day.
Nice scarf. Well done! (I'm still hoping for those Dr Who scarf pics, though! One day...)

I'm really impressed with all your projects!

...I can only knit scarfs, and things of the rectangular variety.

Totally off topic, but H-Dog, you are so cute! Especially bundled up in that self-made scarf.

Could anyone give me some yarn advice?

I really want to knit this skirt: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEdf10/PATTcarnaby.php

I have never knitted a skirt before and when I went to the yarn store today, the woman working basically told me that it wouldn't work unless I used wool, because cotton stretches and acrylic will make me sweaty and uncomfortable (she proceeded to tell me all about ethical wool manufacturers). I have knit acrylic sweaters and scarfs, so am not really sold on the whole acrylic being too sweaty thing, but do any of you have a suggestion for a good worsted weight yarn for a skirt? I would like to use something a bit nicer than red heart, but not super expensive.

that sure is cute! i agree that cotton will stretch out, but i don't see why acrylic wouldn't work or a cotton acrylic mix. hopefully veganknitting will get on here, she knows a ton about vegan yarn. you might even go bonk on her blog...

berroco comfort is an acrylic/nylon blend. that is what i would use for that skirt. actually, that's what i will use for that skirt. it's in my ravelry queue. it's super cute!

Thanks for the suggestions. I was thinking about using berroco comfort. I haven't worked with it before, but I was looking at some of the other berroco yarns at the shop today and they seemed pretty nice.

Did someone call my former username? :)

I agree - why would you worry about a skirt making you sweat, esp. a swingy skirt like that? I'd definitely go with something at least 50% acrylic. I think Berocco comfort would work well. And it's inexpensive and comes in so many colors!

Oh, hi! And a character from Moomins too! <3

Allison, listen to kittee and Little My, they are wise.
I'd use a cotton/acrylic mix too, especially for a swingy skirt (as opposed to "clingy" - depending on the pattern you could end up with that if you use pure cotton). But don't worry too much: Last summer I knitted myself a 100% cotton dress, and even though it's a bit tight around the bum, I realized I like it a lot (even though I'd make some teeny alterations in width if I wanted to make another one). I think with the right measurements you should be fine. :)

Still chasing deadlines for uni - but anyway, I'm making those legwarmers...
(I'm actually quite a bit further along, I just don't have a more recent pic.)

your post inspired me and i started the skirt last night! so far it looks like a ruler, but so far, so good! i'm making it in a really neutral green (sort of olive-y/army green).

it's such a cute hat, idji! at least the little ones don't take too long to make. it's so hard making hats for heads that aren't out and about yet. i've been trying to make a hat for my own soon to be born belly dweller, and every one i make i go back and forth between thinking it's way too huge and thinking it isn't big enough.

i started this one over 5 times! i looked up baby head sizes, so hopefully this will fit at some point.
