Let's Get Waisted

This is Glampyre’s Waist Pack, made from Lily Sugar & Cream in sage green, on US10 needles. Using the Sugar & Cream, I used a little more than 2 balls, but my gauge was looser than what the pattern specified, so using smaller needles and getting the right gauge, it might be possible to make it out of just 2 balls. The pattern specifies one ball of Lion Cotton, which is 236 yards. The Sugar & Cream was 95 yards per ball, for a total of 190 yards, so I was short of the recommended yarn – if I’d used the Lion Cotton, I’m sure one ball would have been plenty, even at my looser gauge. This was a fun little project, and I get lots of compliments on it. In fact, a friend asked if she could buy one from me – I told her no, but that I’d make one for her as a gift. So I think this will be my project (or one of them) for the Lonesome Skein KAL. I’ve got several skeins of Lion Cotton hanging around.
