FAIL! Using the Wrong Yarn

Veyla Mitts – to be frogged…

I have this super luxurious yarn that my friend Janel so graciously gave me a few xmases back and I’ve been trying to find just the right project. It’s beautiful lace-weight qiviuk and I was hoping it might work for these lovely fingerless mitts – Veyla from Ysolda Teague – but the pattern calls for a light fingering weight yarn and as you can see this lace weight is just a bit too thin. When I stretch the cuff, it actually looks OK but the hand just looks too threadbare. Fortunately, it’s an extremely fast knit so it was an interesting experiment. I may try doubling the yarn although I’m not quite sure that I have enough. It will be close but if it works I think it will be wonderful. This yarn is so soft and beautiful!
