I'm stressing though, I don't feel like it's NEARLY large enough to become just what I had intended; do I need to double my yardage to get even close? I did some research and what I found was the opposite of encouraging! I chose this particular material for it's light weight and not-gaudy shimmer but have learned that as far as blocking (enlargement) goes, it won't grow much. I may be a self-proclaimed experienced knitter but I find more and more that I'm a LOT less experienced than I think I am. Still learning the nature and personality of the vast array of fiber options out there and unfortunately, I am through and through the girl who learns the hard way--I really hate that!
And besides, I can always just make another one using the other pattern I purchased specifically with her in mind but this time, I'll know better about what type of yarn to buy for a more realistic end result!
