Fern & Feather is a sweater I mentioned the other day. I had wanted to get the colorwork yoke done, and get the sleeves separated off so all I have to do is knit . . no counting unless I decide to do waist shaping and that’s not much counting.
This evening, I got to that point.
I’m not real sure I have enough of the blue yarn. This is yarn I bought in January, 2018 and it’s a discontinued yarn. The pattern says I need 1070 yards of the blue and I have 1,314 yards but that still makes me nervous but, I guess I kinda always get nervous that I’m going to run out of yarn when I know I can’t get more. The lighter yarn for the colorwork – the pattern says I need 130 yards and I have 438 yards so towards the end, if I feel like I’m going to run short, I’ll add a bit of lighter stripes around the bottom and the sleeves before doing the ribbing.
Now, all I have to do is knit and figure out what to do about striping or not striping so this one goes into a knitting bag and goes on my trip with me.
