Q&A with CCaarrooll

L.Lavelle asked:
Brave woman!
CCaarrooll answered:
Shall I admit that I have since had to start all over? Even with a lifeline I couldn't fix an error.
DawnEdwards asked:
Absolutely beautiful! What type of yarn did you use?
CCaarrooll answered:
I used KnitPicks Chroma in roller skate and a navy sock yarn that was 75% wool and 25% nylon. It wasn't what the instructor would have recommended but it worked out alright since the Chroma is fuzzy enought to keep the stitches from stretching out.
allmomsrule asked:
Wow so beautiful, I hope when I finally get this 2 color brioche knitting figured out I can make something this lovely
CCaarrooll answered:
Thanks! Just be patient. Hopefully you won't have to fix mistakes as often as I did! I love this style of knitting, even if it is challenging.
Dannie - Akasha asked:
Oh wow! Maybe oneday I'll be able to achieve that.
CCaarrooll answered:
I couldn't have done it without the class. I'll admit that I got very frustrated at times and had to start over more times than I'd like to admit. If you're willing to be patient with yourself, give it a try!
Aging Knitter asked:
Your scarf is beautiful. You have given me inspiration. After numerous attempts at two color Italian cast on I've finally got it, but, the idea of a sample was almost to daunting for me. You have given me the perseverance to tackle this sample and project.
CCaarrooll answered:
What a gracious comment. Thanks
