The 4 rows I had been repeating over and over were supposed to be only two rows--neither of which included a decrease. My sweater had dwindled down and now had 32 stitches fewer than intended. There was nothing for it. I had to rip back.
When I wasn't dealing with my unruly cardigan, I was finishing up my final two skeins of mohair/wool handspun. I keep coming back to this vest, despite the gauge discrepancy (about 12 stitches/4 inches instead of 16 on size 8s, the smallest needle that can comfortably manage this bulky yarn). There is also the troubling fact that I have less than 300 yards of this yarn with no hope of obtaining more fiber. My only prospect would be to mingle it with commercial yarn. Eh, it is actually impossible. So why do I keep pulling up the pattern and remeasuring my gauge, hoping for a miracle?
Moonshadow fiber and plyed it with this Romney fiber. Recently I went through my fiber stash and paired each single braid up with something similar to stretch them all a bit further. Next up? This yellow gradient paired with this lemon curd braid. I'll chain ply them separately to preserve the gradient but ultimately plan to knit them in the same project--like a kid's sweater with lemon curd sleeves and the gradient as the body.
Y: The Last Man, Vol. 1 and began The Road after they were mentioned here. The graphic novel even contained a little knitting.
