I used our Andorra yarn to knit Carbeth, holding it doubled on a US 9 needle (5.5mm). I got gauge handily, no fussing around with multiple swatches, and cast on for the third size, a 44” bust. I figured that size would give me plenty of wear in the rest of my pregnancy and in the bustier post-partum nursing days to come in the fall. Held double, I used seven skeins of Andorra - with plenty to spare.
Now that Gilda is almost six months old - she was a TNNA baby!
- I think it’s time to think about making another Carbeth, this time one size smaller and marled in ink black and snow white. A new classic for my wardrobe, which will patiently wait until after the holiday knitting frenzy is over.
