I was excited to start this project using the Misti Alpaca Qolla. I played with colours for awhile on Saturday and decided to use a Casscade 220 in soft green as the 2nd colour. Tuesday night I cast on the 200 plus stitches and knit about 2 inches.
I cast on the stitches again and last night I reknit the pattern. The Misti Alpaca now is the predominant colour and the green is a lovely contrast.
Sometimes it takes a few tries to get what you want!
What else am I working on: A little boy sweater that has ripped back once, and may spend a bit of time in the basket until I decide whether to finish it or frog it too! Then there are 6 inches of a sleeve to finish on a sweater for myself. (Maybe that will get done this weekend!)
In just 2 weeks it is Bowmanville's Apple Festival and Craft Sale. We plan to have tables with clearance yarn and a 'sample' sale. There is quite a selection of lovely samples that need to find a new home.
Lots to do..
See you Soon.
