I finally completed my first (and last) Absorba! I purchased the yarn at the clearance/moving sale at my local JoAnn's, and I've had to tucked away, just waiting for the right opportunity to become The Great Absorba
. After completing my Summer semester of graduate school (WOO HOO!), I decided this was a great project to kick off my three weeks of No-School-dom. I've read several of the posts on the KAL about folks who suffered with aching hands from this project, but I plugged on, determined to own a trusty Absorba. Holy Carpal Tunnel, Batman! This baby hurts ya! Like my grandmother used to say, "It's a good thing she's pretty!"
I used 2 strands of worsted weight Sugar N' Cream in Buttercream and 2 strands of Lion Cotton in Natural on US size 13 needles. The finished measurements are 25.5"x20." She took up 4 Super Size balls of the Sugar N' Cream (2.5 ounces/ball) and a little more than 2 balls of the Lion Cotton (5 ounces/ball). Talk about a stash buster!
