You know CRS, as in, Can’t Remember Shit. Sometimes I just am amazed at my stupidity.
I started knitting this with my merino handspun and it’s going to be spectacular. Of course the pattern calls for some other yarn (20 skeins @ approx. 73 yds per skein) Who buys this stuff!? Anyway 73 X 20 = 1460, DUH! I only have 900 yards of handspun merino – why did I think it was only 840 yds? I don’t know, anyway I was at a cross roads last night – do I frog and do something else with my handspun (but I REALLY like this pattern). Do I do this pattern is something else (purchased yarn)? But it’s really looking spectacular in my handspun, even though I kind of wish it was in a different color; which is also why am was/am considering dying the entire garment after it’s done. And it’s probably a good thing I didn’t just dye the skeins I had because it would be impossible to reproduce it later.
So what’s a girl to do? Decisions, decisions….
Oh hell, I just ordered another bunch o’ merino 64 and it’s back to the spinning wheel.
