Ask Anything

Ravelry thread here to ask questions, bounce ideas & comment

From Magda:  The braid I want to use is this it is Merino, Bamboo and Nylon, colour-way called Panda Sock so I figured I’d spin it for socks (?) It this a good mix for socks at all??? I know merino being so soft, maybe is not the best choice?

From Samantha: Hi all, would appreciate some opinions on what main colour to use with this as cc for the pressed flowers pullover. I can’t seem to figure out what would work best – initial thought was some kind of grey but I haven’t loved that in reality. It’s a fractal 3 ply BFL. Thanks!
