Will Work For Yarn

In a wonderful arrangement with a friend on Ravelry I traded some labor for some yarn. This is what she asked for –

The pattern is written for worsted weight, but easily adjusted for any weight by weighing the yarn as you go. In this case, I was working with 150 grams of fingering weight yarn; a gorgeous, drapey, super soft merino fingering weight yarn. I used 37g for the increase and decrease segments and the remaining 80 grams for the main body. It worked out to be about 80″ long and 17″ wide at the center. IMGP1260In return for this lovely piece of work, I received some Mosaic Moon treats.

And there was another skein of Mountain Meadow that I forgot to photograph before I gifted it to another Ravelry pal.


I am also knitting a pair of longies with feeties for this sweet mama. I’ll let you know how that goes when it is done. I can’t seem to get the feet right and have ripped back a few times.

Knitting for cash is fun and all, and I appreciate the opportuniy to make a little money. But knitting for yarn is really awesome. Because, who do I think I am kidding? The cash goes towards yarn anyway!
