Cool! I can't wait to see the finished jeans. I had thought about making that particular pattern a while back, but I knew that I wouldn't have them finished before my youngest outgrew them! :-) I'm curious to know what the yarn is like, since the pattern says that it fades like denim jeans do with washing and wear. Good luck!

You'd be amazed at how much yarn some tiny things can take. It'll be nice to get those cute little jeans started, won't it??
I just placed an order with Knit Picks for some of their Main Line yarn - cotton/merino blend - for a sweater for my older daughter. She's been chomping at the bit for me to make her this sweater - a Knit Picks pattern for a long-sleeved top - for a while now, so I made an executive decision on the color for her; I hope she likes it
I also recently placed an order with The Loopy Ewe for some Supersock in a nice green and some laceweight - Capellini by Chewy Spaghetti, a yummy merino/silk blend - in color Sullen (no, not a commentary on my mood when I ordered it, but a nice variegated blue). I was quite pleased when my order arrived 2 days after I placed it. They will definitely be getting more business from me with service like that.

It's called Rowan Denim and I got it from yarnmarket.com. It's 100% cotton yarn that evidently is designed to shrink JUST like blue jeans. But at roughly $6 for a 50-gram skein, you probably don't want to knit yourself blue jeans with it LOL.

I see. Well, after I washed my brand-new dishcloth and it shrunk and faded, the thought passed my mind that maybe I shouldn't have spent the money on that yarn but instead just used S&C yarn and might have gotten the same result for cheaper, except that it is worsted weight yarn LOL.

I'd be glad to give you more information if you tell me what you want more information on. I'm sort of desperately overworked and underslept right now, and my interpretive skills are rather weak at this moment.

I remember when the fad was jeans that looked like bleach had been used to make white splotches....and were 100 dollars each.

You could try that.... Use larger needles and knit a smaller size...?
But I'm sure the Rowan yarn will be very nice. ;)

They looked like that because bleach _had_ been used to make the white splotches.
And they're doing it again.

We used to tie dye our jeans....that was pretty cool.
Yes I have seen them with the as* bleached out.

Oh, I'm sorry :-) I shouldn't have asked that without reading the other posts in the thread, they told me everything.
Go back to bed! Your welfare is more important than my curiosity, honestly.
I hope you feel better soon,

Oh, I'm perfectly healthy. I am just having a more chaotic than usual week this week (dental appointments, sick dog needing surgery, etc.) after a more chaotic than usual week last week (major software problems on my computer that cut my productivity to about 60% of normal, and the work volume never slows) that is forcing me to work at more unconventional hours than my usual crazy hours.
I am starting to wonder if this is going to happen so often that I need to recalibrate what I consider "normal," LOL.
