The sweater is progressing, too. I had a few moments of angst when I realized you really can notice the difference in dye lots between the yarn I started with and the yarn I had to order. I actually woke up this morning thinking about it, kinda blue (handpainted) about it. The LYS owner actually asked about it when I ordered the yarn and I blithely tossed off “well, I’ll be incorporating it when I start a new pattern, I’m sure it will be fine.” What was I thinking?
Here is what I’m thinking now:
- I had to start knitting with what I had or I never would have had a chance to finish the sweater before the wedding anyway.
- The MOB’s sweater is not the focal point of the wedding.
- If this is my biggest worry at this point, I’m really in pretty good shape.
Then I took out the sweater and in the cold morning light, you know, it didn’t look that bad. Lot’s of progress yesterday, as I was working to clean out excess stuff in the house by getting a library book read so it could be returned. (I typed that with a straight face.) The waist ribbing is done, and I’m starting the lace upper body now, in a harebell pattern from Barbara Walker’s third book.
And that snow doesn’t look so bad either, especially with 50F predicted for Wednesday.
Have a great Sunday,
