Knitting has been not working out the way I hoped lately. St. Brigid had a mistake. I tried dropping down but it was in the middle of one of the more complex cables. I took it off the needle and ripped. I need to tink back one more row to straighten it out. Rather than rip more I picked up Gloria. Sigh. I am now officially giving up on Cashmerino. I was considering picking up some Cascade 220 in a lovely brown but am also considering scrapping the idea altogether. Some knitters said the sleeves made their arms look like sausages. Do I need that?
In an effort to knit more stash yarn, I picked up an old project and ripped. Anyone care to guess the yarn and/or project? I bet Margene knows. A hint…okay. It’s DK. And it is supposed to be getting 5:1" and I am getting 6. Now, with blocking I could probably get 5 but it does seem a bit tight and maybe it will be less likely to pill. Can you see that I have been scarred by Cashmerino? Should I just go up to a 7? I already ripped once and cast on with the 7 to loosen up. Argh!
