After I showed my work in progress , I ripped it out when I realised that I would run out of yarn.I considered ordering more but it is all a tedious process for me .
I decided to do seven increase repeats and seven straight repeats and seven decrease rows and ripped out till seven increase repeats and started working on the straight repeats. I was not too happy with the idea but I did not have any choice too. When I came to the seventh straight repeat, I chanced upon one more skein of same yarn when I was rummaging through a different box of yarn searching for something in it!.
So I ripped it back again to the seventh repeat and went back to my original plan of twelve increase repeats, eight center repeats and twelve decrease repeats. I am petite, so decided to do eight center repeats to just cover my shoulders. Thankfully I had just enough with only this much left!
I am pleased that I was finally able to complete it just the way I wanted it.
I haven’t blocked it and donot plan to do so yet.I like it just curly and all.
I love this yarn too, its soo soft and most importantly not heavy at all to wear.
p.s.: did you all notice today’s date? 11.11.’11, I like dates like these ? Do you also take note of these kind of things ?
