I'm playing a game of match-the-yarn-to-the-sweater. Here's the yarn:
Here's the sweaters:
I can't say I'm winning. Some of the yarn is from thrift stores, and while it came with labels, they're old-timey:
Old-timey labels don't tell you yardage or gauge (at least these don't). So I've got twelve ounces of this stuff. Great! Thanks label! After many calculations and educated guesses I just bit the bullet and went with the tried and true: the measuring tape. Now I know that one ounce = 65 meters (and one helluva tedious measuring process.) Now it's swatchy time!
At least I know the yardage with my Twinkle yarn, yet I'm having trouble deciding on a pattern. Maybe you can help me out?
