So my Clementine’s Cardi of last week may not be a total loss, but I need to do some major revision (the fronts are WAY too long/big and the sleeves/back may be just the right length already even though the pattern calls for a lower back piece that I haven’t even started yet – and to think I thought I might need more yarn!) before I can finish it up. So in the interim, I have started yet another project.
I long time ago I bought the Juliet pattern. I also had a grand plan recently to make some sort of sweater using the huge amount of rust/burgundy colored red yarn that I have but I wasn’t sure what pattern to use. I decided last weekend to start this project using the Juliet pattern. So far so good.
I’ve got this yarn to start with:
5 skeins Classic Elite City Lights
4 skeins Elann Connemara
3 skeins ArtFibers Diva
2 skeins Knit Picks Wakashan
1 skein Knit Picks Elegance
1 skein Brown Sheep Handpaint Originals
I’ve been doubling up the ArtFibers Diva and KP Wakashan, then Diva and Elann Connemara, then we’ll see – maybe Connemara and Elegance? The City Lights is bulky so I’ll use it singly. I really hope the yarn fits well together!
(*”Juliet” reminds me of my favorite band, The Ophelias. One of my favorite songs of theirs is “Nocturnal Blonde” where they act out the character of Ophelia. I wish there was a digital version, but so far I think it’s only on LP. They also do an amazing version of The Kinks’ “Wicked Annabella” – also only on LP. That sucks!)
