|My first Topography attempt, using Fantasy/Lana Grossa sock yarn|
Yarn: Fantasy, Lana Grossa on size 5 needles. (Another de-stash from Becky).
The pattern asks for you to select a needle size larger than called for to create an open, lacy effect. Melissa has a YouTube video showing her design idea, and she suggests a number of yarns that will showcase the concept. One is Republic of Wool, another is Yarn Ink Studio. She suggests opening up the skein to see if there are 3-5 sections of different colors, one should have a 12" repeat. I know I have a number of single skeins of sock or fingering weight in stash and they often languish, waiting to turn into something special. Does this happen to you? You might want to stash dive and see what you can cast on when you join this KAL. You know you want to, right?
