  1. Haha! Boring man colors! That's been my life for a month now! (I like the term "man friendly yarn" too...I think I'll use that to stay more positive!) I finished Ian's hat...ugh, grey! And now I'm trying to finish up a dark navy Lintilla for a friend at work. The navy is so pretty (Ink TML, I think) but I'm getting pretty sick of it.

    Thank goodness for your KAL! I'm really enjoying the bright colors and seeing the stripes develop...it's a nice break from the boring colors of my other projects. :)

    Also, thanks for answering my question. I thought probably I would need to add more twist...like I do when I twist fringe for my woven scarves. But I don't have any yarn twisting devices and don't really want to get into making my own yarn right now...can you even imagine with all the other things I don't have time for?

    Anyway, thanks for trying it out and showing what the yarn would look like. I might go crazy and try to do it by hand someday...who knows. But at least I know to add more twist first. Thanks!!
