I’ve been knitting mostly on Noah’s birthday sweater, finishing both sleeves and attaching them to the body, and then realized I was running out of the blue yarn for the last bit of blue stripe. Woe is me. 😦 I tried to figure out ways to get around ordering another skein of yarn, but in the end I know I won’t like the look of it with one stripe being the wrong size and then I will likely run out of yarn in the other colors if I try to stretch them to take up the yardage of the blue stripe. Needless to say, I admitted defeat and ordered another skein. So that sweater is on hold for a few days. It should be fairly quick to finish once the yarn arrives.
Meanwhile, I cast on Phoebe’s birthday sweater. This sweater is a bit of a gamble as I’m trying to adjust an adult-sized sweater down to Phoebe’s size by using smaller yarn and needles and a tight gauge. I think it is ambitious to hope to have it done within a month, it’s possible but I doubt it. I couldn’t resist this sweater though because of the horses on the yoke. Phoebe is going to love it, even if I finish it after her birthday.
