The Scheepjes Stonewashed arrived today. This is a sport weight yarn, or maybe DK. The yarn I bought before was StoneWashed XL, more Aran weight than DK. Absolutely not the right yarn for the Knitted Animal Friends.

This is the yarn needed for the Knitted Animal Friends Charlotte the Fox and George the Dog. It’s swatched on the left below.

Note that the skeins of StoneWashed XL which I ordered in error are quite different. The XL is swatched on the right above.

The tiny doll-sized skein will knit up a nice pair of French knickers for Charlotte, and I ordered some more Catona for the two animals’ outfits.

I’ll make something nice from the XL — maybe blankets for the animals?

I absolutely could have knitted the animals from leftover skeins of sport yarn and their clothes from sock yarn in my stash. By the time I count up all the Scheepjes yarn and the book, I will probably be nearing $100.

Doubtless it will be a worthwhile project.
