On the Needles Friday

Last night I cast on socks using Opal cotton to join in Patchwork Times Socktober. 


  1. When I cast on the stitches felt very loose and the yarn seems a little finer than what I have used before. Checked online this morning and saw the suggested needle size is 1, not 2 that I have. Looks like a road trip to Stitch Niche in Diamondhead!

  2. Is there any nylon in this yarn to help keep it from stretching?

  3. Paula, the Opal Cotton is 38% wool, 32% polyamide (acrylic?) and 30% cotton. Maybe I need to break down and start knitting a swatch for new yarns.
