I came really close last night to losing a serious game of yarn chicken…
This was all I had left at the end of a block of purple on my Cosette tee. Did I mention I’m doing vertical stripes? I used leftover yarn from my Saddle Shoulder Striped Tee and even weighed my yarn left to see if I’d make it. I was not trying to go back to Fibre Space to buy a full skein of 1 color when I knew I’d only need 10 yards at most if I ran out. And I did not have to go! WOOHOO! It was pretty tense in my house while I was knitting to see if I could make it to the end.
The Cosette tee is worked from cuff to cuff, something I’ve never done before and am super excited about. I love new construction techniques. It always makes it a more interesting project. I decided to make a tee with some of the leftover colors from my last tee in the Berroco Pima 100. I used the pale pink and purple and then added in a darker shade of the pink, a light blue with hints of pink in it and a dark blue…get it? Pink to lavender to purple to blue to light blue! A different kind of rainbow but still lots of color because that’s what I like. It’s hard to tell in this pic but I’ve already started the dark blue and will just have the last light blue section and then seaming and picking up the collar and hem. I should be finished this weekend and wearing this baby next week.
In addition to finishing up this project I’m headed to Maryland Sheep and Wool on Sunday. What are your weekend knitting plans?
