Last night I started the sheep sweater for Addie. It’s all stash yarn that was purchased in January, 2014 to make the sweater for Addie.
Maybe some day I will love intarsia/color work but right now, I do not like it. The pattern calls for two rows of the sheep on the front and back. Because it isn’t worked in the round, I had to have “bobbins” and not carry the yarn along. Oh, how I dislike that. Every 5 or 6 rows, I’d have to stop and untangle it.
About halfway into the first row of sheep, I decided there was no way I was putting sheep on the back side of the sweater. About 2/3 of the way into the first row of sheep, I decided I was putting one row of sheep on the front side and that was it but I talked myself into staying up and getting two rows done on the front but that’s it!
The rest of this sweater should go really quickly. The yarn for the sheep was fuzzy and splitty . . oh, I’m so glad to be past that part.
The sizing was 2-4 or 4-6 so I made the 4-6 and it may be too big for her this year but I’d rather it be too big than too small.
