“Oh no they can’t be teardrops for a man ain’t supposed to cry…
“you’re on my mind constantly, and I think of you the whole day long…
‘Cause the body goes Boom Boom Boom
“I’m your only friend
I’m not your only friend
But I’m a little glowing friend
But really I’m not actually your friend
But I am”
They Might Be Giants
You Learn by Alanis Morissette
This was the best song title that I could “link” to this knit project. I chose this song title in relation to the fact that I “learned” something I didn’t know before, and re-learned something I did.
Dimensions: 66 x 4/5 inches
Cast on twelve stitches and work stockinette for three rows, alternated with reverse stockinette. I chose use this pattern from an old one I used before; the difference with this one is that there are no chevrons or zig zags…hmmm! I should be able to make zig zags.

This is where I “learned” something new. I learned that double-stranding a bulky and a lace, does actually add weight to the yarn – evidenced by the beginning five-inch width and ending with a four-inch width. However, it seemed that the second ball was a bit thinner also.
I re-learned the need to alternate two multicolor yarns of the same color to avoid different pooling patterns.
