That's beautiful!!!!!

Here's my finished romper, it was getting kind of dark but I want to mail it out tomorrow so this pic is as good as it gets. I also had to take it on my deck floor instead of the usual picnic table because my neighbor was out mowing his yard and I didn't want him to see my taking a picture and think I was taking it of him.

Re: Knitters/Hookers/Spinners/Dyers *WIP* 7/29

Hey there knitting Mamas!
I don't post here,because I don't knit,but I have a few questions, you all might be able to answer.I'm thinking about having a long sleeve small things romper done for my daughter in size 6-12 months.The question is would 500 yds be enough for the project?
Is there a certain kind of yarn base that is better for rompers?
Also what would you think of a romper where a solid yarn and a pretty colorway one was alternating,creating stripes?Do you think it would look neat or no?
Thanks Mamas in advance!

Hi Estzi!!! I think the colorway stripes would be awesome!! I would say a sturdy base like Cestari or MM wool would be perfect The 6 month size calls for 450 yards, and the 12 month calls for 500 yards. I'm having one made for my Bambino with MM wool
