Q&A with Ro Spinner

julieluvstoknit asked:
Your scarf looks great! Wonderful yarn. Happy knitting, Julie
Ro Spinner answered:
Thanks, Julie! I thought it was wonderful yarn, too. It has a self-striping quality about it, which makes even easy projects look wonderful. That being said, I think in the future I will do "lace" patterns in a solid color so that the lace pattern stands out better, but I'm super happy with this, and the yarn I used is so-o soft and warm, and not at all itchy.
Redridinghood3 asked:
I've been scrolling through all these finished projects and must tell you yours is my favorite. Beautiful color, size, and I love the way it hangs on you. What size needles did you use??
Ro Spinner answered:
Thank you, that's very kind of you to say! I used one size larger than recommended in the diections because that is what I had, and the yarn I used had a very soft feeling to it, so it came out larger than I thought, but I was thrilled with the outome, especially because I've ALWAYS steered clear of any lacy knitting patterns.
