Notes

10-16-2015
I’m not giving myself a deadline for this project. It’ll get done when it’s done!

I’m going to use stash yarn as much as possible - all yarns will be Shetland or Shetland-type yarns:
-- Jamieson & Smith 2 Ply Jumper Weight
-- Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift
-- Scottish Collection from Tomato Factory (I understand this is Jamieson’s)
-- Harrisville Designs
-- Wirsit
-- Rennie Handknits

I wasn’t happy with the way the red stranding showed through to the white side, so I did it over with no stranding at all. It’s okay for a mini-mitten garland but I wouldn’t do with a mitten that would be worn.
