Oh Noes! It’s not the right one!!!

Since I had some time this weekend, I decided to assemble the Elizabeth Cardigan. I saved almost a full ball of Liberty Wool Prints yarn in the North Seas White Caps colorway I used because I was concerned that the collar and front bands might not be long enough. Sure enough the collar and bands aren’t long enough. In preparation for knitting more on the bands, I wound some yarn off to use for assembly and noticed some green peeking out of the ball. IT’S NOT THE SAME COLORWAY!!!! It was leftover from another piece I made and I’d laid it with the sweater so when I started the bands I thought I had almost a full ball in reserve and I have NONE!!! Gate City Yarns has received another shipment and I’m hoping that we have a ball of this colorway. If not, I’ll be frogging and redesigning the sweater by picking up stitches around the front and knitting till the yarn runs out. I found knitting the bands as instructed the first time tedious. I know I won’t be happy to knit them a second time. I will be able use the other colorway for assembly as it won’t show.

One more thing about the Antler…this pattern was well written and had a wide range of sizes (infant to 3X) so is well worth the money. As with any pattern with a bunch of sizes a highlighter or PDF program that allows highlighting is beneficial. Here’s a picture of it steamblocked with buttons.

I continued to work on my Witchy socks. The yarn is Dancing Dog Dyeworks Witches Brew.The pattern is WendyKnits’Fingering Weight Toe-Up Socks with Gusset and Slip-Stitch Heel. I used size US 0 needles.I hope to finish these tonight before sleep knitting sets in but not sure that will happen.

Since it’s Saturday, how about a bit of temptation? These are Aurora Gnomealis (left) on Sparkle and Bertie Bott’s on laceweight from GnomeAcres.

Till next time, no frogs,no tinks, just knits.
