Bulky = Fast

Today is a super bulky kind of day. It is cold here in Ancaster. Thankfully we haven't had snow like they did north of us.

The colours of Freia Super Bulky are amazing. We've used the yarn for many projects.
Hand Painted Super Bulky Gradient Yarn
Super soft single ply. Freia's process creates a strong yarn that is lofty but with very little pilling. This yarn is dreamy!

100% wool
80m (87 yards)
150 gram ball
8 stitches = 4" on 12mm needles
Spun and handpainted in the US
Alex mixed Freia Super Bulky and Tosh ASAP to make the Beginners Brioche Scarf.
People often ask me if my patterns are good for a knitter that is new to brioche. I try to make all of my patterns beginner friendly but this one is designed especially for beginners that want to learn how to knit two color brioche flat. Length is customizable and the bulky yarn knits up fast!
The Big Hat is a super easy knit. You need one ball of Freia and there is enough yarn for the great pompom.

Great news for people who want to knit with super bulky yarns. Knitter's Pride is now making 9mm, 10mm and 12mm, 40cm (16") circular needles. Until now we used double pointed needles to make The Big Hat.

This super easy cowl takes one ball. It is my pattern and it is free when you purchase a ball of Freia Bulky.
One ball of Freia Super Bulky will make Jet Setter.

Beth knit the Fernanda Circular Scarf with 2 balls of Freia Bulky.

Beth is home and we are catching up on TV shows. Beth has started a new project with Freia Super Bulky and I will show pictures on Monday when it's finished.
