Ever decide to resurrect something small and simple from your UFO pile? Something that you should be able to create a finished product within a day or so with?
Well, that was the idea- BUT I RAN OUT OF YARN.
Now mind you, this was maybe half a left over skein from Blogless Faith when we all were doing the cabled purses extravaganza last spring, but I truly thought I had enough Lamb’s Pride to make a small clutch. Trying to appease my FO appetite over here but no! I have run out of yarn. Which has now sent me into a wild goose chase on the internet to find more Lamb’s Pride Fat Burly Spun (I think that’s what it is) in this amazing lime color.
I also am swatching with my Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sport in Bittersweet for the Child’s Placket Neck- Pullover from “Last Minute Knitted Gifts” .
So far size 7 needles got me 4 inches across with 21 stitches and 32 rows but about 4 1/2 inches high. So I will swatch with size 6 tonight. I need a perfect 4 x 4 square right? Swatching and gauge has never come easy for me. Apparently I don’t knit right because I almost never get the right size with the recommended needles. Anyway if it does swatch up, I’m going to need another skein of that too!
If at first you don’t succeed, try try again!
