Late last night (or it was late when I saw it), Eat, Sleep, Knit announced a Flash Knit Along (FKAL) using the Candy Dots pattern. Such a happy pattern! How nice would it be to have this cowl to war on a cold, gray day? Oh . . wait . . no cold, gray days here but you never know where I could find myself and experience a cold, gray day.
Of course, I quickly ordered yarn but then I started thinking .. the FKAL runs from 8/28 til 9/3. With good weather conditions, an order shipped on Saturday is going to get here on Wednesday, which will be the 30th. Who knows what this week’s weather may do to yarn trying to make it’s way from GA to TX. Assuming it arrives on Wednesday afternoon, there’s probably no way I could knit that cowl in 4-1/2 days. So . . that prompted me to go stashdiving. After digging and tumbling and making a huge mess, I came up with a few options but nothing was thrilling me.
Back to more stashdiving. Or, should I call it making a mess and wasting time?
Then, I came to my senses and remembered that I am doing the What the Fade? KAL starting Thursday, and Joji’s KAL starts Friday and I have half a dozen of her things I want to knit.
The yarn for What the Fade? hasn’t been wound yet so I stopped and wound all that.
After winding the yarns, I think #4 and #5 are too close in color. They don’t look nearly so close in the photo below (they’re the bottom and next to bottom in the photo below).
Back to a little more stash diving to see what I can come up with to replace one of those colors. I’ll be ready by Friday . . that’s how I spent most of my day and didn’t really accomplish a single thing!
