WIP: Nash’s Sweater

Standard

Hello crafty peeps

I didn’t want to leave you in the lurch so despite spending quite a chunk of time posting to my other site today (a chunk of time that was an unexpected gift because work was quiet today and I was asked if I wanted to go home early) I thought I’d update you on the current knitting project.

First I’d like to show you the cute project I made from this pattern before. It’s a really sweet design with the simple closure at the front. After I made the hat last week, I hoped I’d have enough of the Euro Baby Maypole yarn to make a matching vest using this pattern. (Both of those links are to my Ravelry project pages.)

I think we can all see that this is a game of yarn chicken right here. I have used nearly a whole ball and I’m not even up to the armpits. The partial on the left is what’s left over from the hat. What are the odds that I’ll actually finish this vest before the yarn runs out?

I just thought – if I really do need more, I could go back to that yarn shop in May and get some more. Heck, I’ll be going there anyway. Who can resist a yarn shop when on holiday, eh! It won’t be the same dye lot, but that probably doesn’t matter, considering the self-striping nature of this yarn.

Potential problem solved! In fact, I’ll email my sister and ask her what the name of the shop is. Maybe she will even be willing to take a drive over there to see if they still stock it. It’s a small island, it’s not far.

Good night all, and talk to you again soon.
