I decided to order some of the KnitPicks Dishie yarn, since I also enjoy knitting dishcloths, and they are something easy to knit and work on while I have to wait somewhere.
I have been using the Lily Sugar N’ Cream yarn for years. What I got looking at today, of the balls of the Sugar N’ Cream yarn is how inconsistent the sizes of balls are. I have one of the twists that is 56.7 grams (2oz) that has 86 m / 95 yds, then a variegated that is 56.7 grams (2oz) and 86 m / 95 yds, as well as a variegated that is 85 grams / 3 oz and 138 m / 150 yds. I also have 4 solid balls that are 70.9 grams / 2.5 oz with 109 m / 120 yds and a super size solid that has 113 grams / 4 oz, with 184 m / 200 yds. It’s all over the place and kind of random how inconsistent the weights and yardages the balls have.
That is one of the things I just looked at, that all the KnitPicks Dishie yarn (variegated and solid) comes in 100g balls that have 190 yards each of yarn.
I am also loving the colors that the KnitPicks Dishie comes it. It seems of late anyway (like the past 5 – 10 years) that the selection of the Sugar N’ Cream yarn has been slim, with few choices, and even fewer that I like. Or maybe that’s just my local craft store. That’s why I ordered some of the Dishie yarn, to give a try and compare the two brands. At least the needle size recommended across the two brands is pretty much the same. As is the fact that they are all a 4 / worsted weight yarn.
The colors I had ordered of the Dishie yarn are: Ash, Azure, Conch, Douglas Fir, Eggplant, Fiesta, Mulberry, Pomegranate and 2 Kenai.
I will be writing up another post once I have knit up a dishcloth or two out of the Dishie yarn, so stay tuned for that post.
