I have been working on two projects that just aren’t quite right lately. Yet somehow, I can’t bring myself to rip them out. Mostly because I am not sure what I want to do next. I love the yarn for both, which is part of why it is so difficult!
Project the first:
Longies with 3IG Carys BFL. Beautiful yarn, fine pattern. Bad gauge. I love how the yarn is striping in the body but dislike the striping on the legs. I think this yarn may become a striped sweater, rather than longies, once I get around to ripping. I really love how the purple semisolid looks next to the Isla, and I think that a striped sweater would really show this off to great advantage.
Project the second:
This is meant to be the Shapely Tank from White Lies Design, in Bella by Selah. This is a GORGEOUS silk/wool blend yarn. Unfortunately, the pattern does not work. It increases entirely too much too quickly going into the bust area and is entirely too large. I don’t know if I want to rip down to the waist and work it from there or if I just want to rip it all out and do something entirely different. I am leaning toward a complete rip and something entirely different, but I don’t know what. I have three skeins of this – enough for the tank top I thought I wanted, but not enough for a cardigan or anything else.
Thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions?
