Q&A with Bob Bob

thistle_ink asked:
Looks great. What weight yarn and what size needles did you use? I haven't blocked mine yet but there's no way it will be that big.
Bob Bob answered:
You will be surprised at how large it will become after blocking. I am allergic to wool, so I couldn't use any of the suggestions. I found online from Pulling At Strings. It is called Bramble on Bamboo Cotton Fingering, made by Three Irish Girls. I wish I could find some more in a wonderful color to do Clarus. It was wonderful to work with. Can't wait to see yours. I had to use a size 8 to get the gauge
Patricia R asked:
Great work!. I see you used a size 8 needle. I am using a size 7. So this is going to work?
Bob Bob answered:
I think it will. My yarn being bamboo and cotton, has "no give or stretch" watsoever, so if yours has some wool in it, it will be more stretchy when blocking.
