The work on my Mama Vertebrae was temporarily suspended when I ran out of yarn last week, and had to wait until the husband’s day off yesterday to get another ball.
Of course they didn’t have the same dye lot anymore, so I bought one ball, kept my fingers crossed, and started thinking of plan b. But it seems like a good match; I can’t see the difference.
Now I am carefully dividing up the last metres of yarn to make the most of the last inches of each sleeve, wishing I had a fancy digital scale to help me measure the remaining yarn.
While I was waiting for the extra yarn, I cast on for the baby version of the pattern (free on ravelry here), using leftovers from the Pepita onesie – until I ran out of yarn here, too. At least I know my mum is sending me some more, so eventually this little cardie will have some sleeves too!
I am still reading Jamaica Inn by Daphne du Maurier, although there is a ridiculous amount of books on my nightstand suddenly. After a trip to the library I am well stocked, and of course I couldn’t help but dip into several books at once – so no real progress on any of them.
Looking forward to seeing what everyone else is up to on Ginny’s Yarn Along today..
