Norwegian Sweater




Finally decided on colors and ordered yarn for my Norwegian Sweater! I figured it needed to be colors I liked together, so I picked Black & Red with some white accents. Now I need to sit down and play with patterns. I know which ones I want, but I have to put them together and chart them.
I also ordered 6 circular needles - small sizes that I didn't have. I like the pointy tips on the options.
You should check out the sale they are having on discontinued yarns!

What was the make and model of the norwegian sweater yarn and what yarns are on sale where?

Oh! Sorry! The yarn I bought was Telemark which is 100% Peruvian Highland Wool, Sport Weight, 6sts to the inch on #3/#4 needles, 103 yards per 50 gram ball. It is hand wash, not superwash, but that was my preferance. They also have a superwash yarn that's the same weight. I checked it out on Ravelry and it had mostly good reviews. The best part was that it was $1.99 a ball instead of the $6.50 I was planning to pay for the Istra at Nordic Fiber Arts.

And there are clearance colors in just about every yarn they carry - starting at $1.79 a ball and going up to about $5 (for the alpaca).

While I was there, I picked up some 24" circulars in sizes I was missing . . . . I figure that if I'm gonna knit this damned black yarn on size 1 needles, they should have sharp points for me . . . . .
