Remember the ill-fated pajama top incident? (For a refresher, see here, here, and here) Remember how I had finally purchased some solid brown coordinating flannel to make a new top, and how I drew that bag for the Project of the Month for September?
I consoled myself with some work on the new socks,
adding a new ball of yarn. I was toying with how to proceed (and putting off frogging a few rows because this is really sticky yarn), but I was in a bit of a destructive mood after the pajama incident, so I cheerfully ripped back the knitting, and found a yarn end that would give me a "blended" change. The change is not at all visible, and I have now even divided for the neck!
I decided to join the new yarn with the color changes going in the opposite direction. I'm not sure how this will turn out, but I don't have very much farther to go on the top, and I thought it would be nice to have some new color combinations. And the second ball of yarn is about to need replacing as well, so I can change things in a few rows if I need to anyway.
I need 30 more projects by the end of the year. Which makes it a PERFECT time to pick up a sweater knit with fingering weight yarn, don't you think?????
