Well seriously – this can’t be called a “Stashbusting” report because I’m clearly going in the wrong direction! See yesterday’s post and you’ll understand why — fabrics were purchased for Christmas Town Sampler – A Collaboration Among Friends (Judy told me to shop!) so tho I haven’t tallied it all to the exact fat quarter, I’m pretty sure I’m in the red again. Even the yard and a half I used from the stash for the backing and binding of a wallhanging won’t alter that fact. That’s just the way it goes some days.
Spent the morning kniting on the Spectra scarf but I’m thinking I may start over with some other yarn (since there’s plenty here to choose from) ;-). I’m just not thrilled with the Noro I picked for the wedge colors – I’d like something a little bright and that changes color more often and I just realized one of the colors in the Noro is going to be way too close to the main color so when I get to that section, the wedge won’t really show. But the biggest thing is the texture of the Noro – it’s slubby (or what I call slubby) with thicker and thinner places. In some things I don’t mind that but in this I’m not real fond of the look. So I may go back to the drawing board or I may knit a bit more till the colors start shifting more and see what I like – I’m undecided.
