Still trying to decide on yarns. This is what happens when there’s not a yarn shop nearby with a great variety so I can walk in, lay out the yarns, choose my colors and get started.
Yarn in Addie’s school colors is accumulating here quickly.
It’s truly a bag full of yarn. All dumped out, it looks like this.
Since getting Addie’s teacher’s gift made and in the mail is a priority, I’ll start with that one.
For those who thought the gray mottled yarn looked blue, does it still look blue in this picture? The colors are crimson and gray and I suppose that mottled yarn isn’t really gray but it’s so much prettier than plain gray I think.
Here’s another option but I feel like the gray is just so boring.
I suppose if I’m vetoed on Option 1, I’d choose Option 3. This is Blue Sky’s Woolstok and I love the yarn.
Those are the three options for the teacher’s gift.
Next is the yarn for a sweater for Addie that I want to make to try my theory for another sweater I want to make. This doesn’t have to be done before Christmas. In fact, I’m probably going to make a size 10 and let it be for next winter.
This is the yarn I original chose for Addie’s sweater but then I thought the gray was too light so I ordered a darker gray.
I also wasn’t sure the red was “crimson” enough so I ordered another red I thought might be more crimson (on top) but as you can see, it’s too pink.
So, Addie’s sweater will use the grays/reds in the photo above but not the reds on top of the grays.
I’m done ordering crimson and gray yarn!
Please tell me which yarns you think I should use for the teacher’s cowl so I can get started: Option #1, #2 or #3.
