Throw Grow


The throw is growing, it's now 48in long. (and 34in wide although it's hanging narrow in the picture). What's annoying me is that you combine 4 colors, one of the colors you double. So I have red, green, purple and two grey strands.... the pattern said to buy 3 skeins of the single-strand colors and 5 skeins of the two-strand color. Ok... I've used up 2 each of the single-skein colors and 4 of the double skein color and I need to keep going.... but oops, I either need another skein of the grey, or I need to split the skein. If I split the skein, it will not be long enough. So I'm off to Michaels at some point to buy another one. Luckily Lion Brand Jiffy isn't exactly fancy dyelot so I can probably pick up another one and not have it noticible. Especially since it's all blended together anyway. Just annoyed by it.

And the obligatory cute kitten picture...

Wow, seems like that throw is consuming a lot of yarn! I bet it will be warm and cozy, though.

Before I even started my sweater I did some calculations and thought I was going to run out of yarn so I bought 3 more balls, hoping they would be the same dyelot. Well, now that all the knitting is done I have just under 4 balls of yarn left. Maybe I can't do math.
