Remember how delighted I was with the colors of my Kersti? And how I loved when the colors sometimes overlapped? Well, I started a new ball of yarn and there was rough housing around the pool. I ripped out the new ball and started from the other end. Plum pools changed to blue pools. It reminded me of that urban myth of peeing in the pool and the water changing color. Is it the amount of stitches on the needle at this point in the sleeve? Or is it just the variability of one skein from another—even in the same dye lot! I balled another skein and I am alternating balls every two rows. I accidentally increased a 2 more stitches than suggested. I changed it to 4 and will do so on both sleeves. It shouldn’t make a huge difference, right?
The other thing I am unhappy with is that ring-like thing on the sleeve. It looks like a bullseye and reminded me of Lyme Disease. It looked worse before I alternated yarns. Never a dull moment around here, I tell you.
The Dale sweater has been sadly neglected. Devan is untouched. I have Cameron’s socks to finish before I can start it. Oh, and that poor Everyday Cardigan. Perhaps it should be renamed, Maybe Someday. And somehow, I have it in my head that I really want to finish the Kid Silk Haze shawl for Owen’s teacher. Summer dreaming! Off to speech with Cameron, who’s coming? Kersti, of course!
