I've been working on SalinaTwo for what seems forever now. It was going really well, however, and seemed like it was going to be the Best Sweater yet. And then I noticed that I had a lot less yarn than I thought I did. Sure, I was knitting a smaller size, but I was also using a tighter gauge. Sure, I had leftover yarn, but when I weighed it, it was only 20 grams. Oh dear!
I got to this point.
Which is about where they want you to end the sleeves on Salina, but I couldn't do it - because I work in a primary school, I'm in a variety of temperature zones all day long and when it's cold I need those full length sleeves!
I was down to working off the swatch.
My colourway of Rowan Felted Tweed (Whisper, shade 141) is discontinued so I didn't have the option of popping down to the shops and comparing balls to my jumper. There was still an online shop selling my colourway, however, so I took the plunge.
And, it didn't really go.
A bit more green, I thought!
Which was then a bit bright. Harrumph!
I am giving up, striping as much as I can with the remaining bit from the swatch, and the cuffs will just have to be bright, and blue.
