Running Out

So, I am still working on this sweater...

...although I did take a little break to work on a couple hats, including this one:

Pretty cute, huh? Same cat, different hat! (Still the only cat "willing" to model for!) But back to the sweater. I am now nearly halfway through the blue yarn, and I have 6 more inches to knit before I do the final ribbing. I am pretty sure I will run out of the blue, so now what? I have another skein of the grey variegated in my stash, and I am toying with starting some blue and grey stripes, then ending with the grey variegated (which also appears in the top of the sweater). What do you think?

I have had dilemmas like this before, and things generally work out pretty well. This time, though, I am worried about adding the light color to the bottom of the sweater. I really liked the idea of the weighty blue finishing the hem. Perhaps I could rip back a few rows (egad!), start a section of grey/blue stripes, then finish off with the blue...oh, I just don't know! Seriously now, any thoughts?

Worst case, I will likely call up my friends at Knit Picks and get myself some more of that blue. lol!

In other news, please pray for my Sweetie and his family this week. Things are starting to move with my brother-in-law, and we are not sure what the next steps hold exactly. Even so, we look forward to the day that he receives his sentence and there is some closure for the family.

I think that brings us full-circle from last week. A second hat, a sweater update, and all I know (which is very little) about what happens next in our family drama. I pray that your family is not experiencing the level of drama that ours is, and that you are doing all you can to stay healthy this winter.

Thanks for stopping by, and Knit in Good Health.

  1. I love the colors of the sweater, I think it will look nice whichever way you decide to finish it. I'm no help at all with this kind of thing!

    Keeping your whole family in my prayers, the justice system can be very slow and difficult for people who have already had such a great trauma. May the resolution help bring everyone some peace.
