~Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading and I love sharing my projects and current reads here. I would love for you to join me each month and share what you are knitting (or crocheting) and reading too! Post your photo(s) on your blog or on Instagram (#yarnalong) and then share a link below to either your blog or Instagram post!~ (this post contains affiliate links.)
I made a drastic decision yesterday after taking this photo. I ripped this little cardigan back to the beginning and started over. When I originally started knitting it, I didn’t put much thought into it, which is often the case with me. I am frequently impulsive and this can result in me making a mess of things. In this case, I realized a few inches in that I needed to be alternating skeins because these have so much variation. I decided that I would wait until after dividing for the sleeves. A couple of inches after doing so, I noticed how much better I liked that portion of the sweater owing to the more subtle color shifts that result from alternating skeins. Was it super noticeable? Probably not to everyone, and definitely not if you just look at a photo of it, but I knew I would be much happier in the long run if I started over, alternating skeins from the start. Lesson learned.
I’m on the third Mitford book, These High, Green Hills. I do love these books! This is the last one that I own, and I’m going to switch gears after this one and read something different, but I still look forward to my few minutes of reading time each night before I go to sleep. It’s a comfort to know that there are seven more in the series.
