Sherry,

You're welcome, hon!  Kiss

If it's far lighter than sport, of course, I'd expect it to take longer...sigh.  Frown  The drawbacks of an otherwise nice yarn!  Cry

I can understand why you'd have trouble with the sport weight and Tunisian knit.  Tunisian is really meant more for a hardier, sturdier yarn, not a lighter one.  But who knows...you may be surprised!  Smile  Worth a try.  Kiss

Melanie,

I prefer the lighter yarns for tunisian knit, the heavier ones create a stiffer fabric that I certainly wouldn't care for in a garment. Wink

Sure, it does take a lot longer. But I do prefer it. Kiss


Sherry

Sherry,

Oh, true, yarns starting from about worsted on up are woefully bad for Tunisian...such a disappointment.  Frown  But the lighter yarns make the fabric less coarse.

Hey, it gives good results, so of course I can see why you'd prefer it!  Kiss

I mostly like the lighter yarns for doll clothing for the smaller dolls.  Worsted and chunky weights are better suited for larger dolls.  Smile
