Yarn Along



Playing along with Ginny for Yarn Along Wednesday -
I'm still reading Freedom.
It's about 2/3 done, and I am still really enjoying it.
This sweater that I am knitting is actually taking a hiatus, as I am nearly out of the medium brown.
That tiny ball of medium brown there is all I have left, and it came as a little shock to me when I realized that there was no way that I would be able to finish the sweater with my remaining yarn.
Even after I harvested the ribbing and the pocket liners, all that was left was said tiny ball and I have the entire yoke to knit.
So, off to Ravelry I went.
I made an inquiry and I have a ball of yarn winging its way from BC as we speak.
This sweater began its life about a year ago, and suddenly I was taken with the urge to finish it.
It just goes to show that you should never just by some yarn and then design a sweater as you go.
Have a plan! This is the lesson that I have learned here.
