What's that? Are you wondering why my orange pullover is in disarray? Well, you see, I ran out of orange yarn and wasn't able to get the sleeves down to the cuffs. So I undid the ribbing of the body of the sweater to steal some much desired orange yarn to finish both of the sleeves to the cuff. All of the ribbing will be striped colors of the yoke detail.
I am happy that I have enough yarns to accomplish this goal (or so I think). As of this morning both sleeves are finished and now I'm reworking the ribbing of the body. Phew! If you remember, I do love a good game of yarn chicken but that's mostly because I win. When I lose I like to problem solve and it does take my mind off of the state of the world. So not knowing if I have enough yarn is a win-win situation in my brain space.
I love working on the citron shawl but I cannot read while doing this because the yarn has some silk content and so it's a bit slippery on the needles. I can't risk losing a stitch! I listen to podcast instead.
I started another pair of socks for me with yarn I bought while out and about with my sister during Thanksgiving (such good memories!). I haven't done much this past week but I do know I will be able to knit and read at the same time while working on this project.
What are you working on this week?
