After finishing Stowe I was a little concerned that any new knit for me will take another year and a great deal of patience. But then I made Gale in less than a month so my faith got uplifted... slightly. Let's be honest, with 8 mm needles it wasn't too hard.
So I began to search for the next big project. There were a few conditions:
- I have to use my stash only
- no small size needles otherwise it would take me forever to finish
- it has to be more classic than trendy but not boring
Created a project page the same day and began swatching with SweetGeorgia Yarns Trinity Worsted in slate colorway:
The yardage is quite big on this one. And it's heavy.
But this doesn't bother me as much as the fact that all 10 skeins I have are of the same dye lot on paper. They are SO DIFFERENT in real life. I had to alternate skeins most of the time, it's so frustrating and truly slows the process.
In a few skeins I found knots and broken strands that I had to weave - you don't expect to find those things in the yarn that costs so much.
