This amorphous gray blob is an entire bag of yarn. It was zooming along today. The ribbing that joins the 2 ends is begun and will be ripped. Yessirree Bob, I spent an hour knitting the ribbing and then suddenly realized I was supposed to change colours.
So the ripping begins on 2 very longs rows, but thanks heaven it wasn't more. It was time for a break anyway.
This might not strike anybody but a knitter as funny, but Thursday evening as I was measuring and knitting, I decided that there was just no way 2 bags of yarn was going to be enough. So I umm, ordered another bag. I'm feeling just a little sheepish because I am only into bag 2 by 2 skeins.
Which, now that I write it out, is a lot less than I calculated originally (before the sheepish bit). I think I am going to measure it again.
And again. Just to be sure. It said it needed to be 36 inches. I am pretty sure that is what I have.
Unless my measuring was way off, there ought to be enough yarn for a whole other sweater with the bag still to come, the left over gray, and the half bag of charcoal I expect to have left from the ribbing and sleeves of this sweater. Yup right there I can see it. Plenty for a second sweater.
I can't tell if I am happy or sad about this. Sure am feeling sheepish though. Yup. That is me.
