When I first started stocking Knitterman’s Fingering, I was concerned about whether it would be useful for lacework, because it is a firmly spun superwash Corriedale. I put it up in skeins of about 460 yards apiece.
I should not have worried so much. This week I was sent pictures of two different lace projects, both done with K-man’s Fingering.
The first one, done by Suna, was started with a BRS skein that was mostly browns with a little bit of greens:
and then she asked for one that was mostly greens and a bit of browns, to coordinate. It was a custom job so I didn’t photograph it.
But look what did did with it:
She says she LOVES working with the Knitterman’s Fingering!
And then Libby sent a picture of her project as it was set out for blocking. She says it was just over 1 full skein of Knitterman’s Fingering.
So if you have a lace-type project that you plan to use or wear regularly, considering using the Knitterman’s Fingering. Not only more cost effective than Phydlbitz with more yardage, but as a superwash it can be put into a gentle wash cycle without worrying about felting! Primo Lace (Merino/Silk) and Indulgence (Alpaca/Silk) are GREAT for those special gifts, or fancy outfits, but for treating yourself to a fancy look without a fancy price, Knitterman’s Fingering would be a good choice.
