1-11-15 - frogged! decided it just wasn’t quite right… better to rip now than later…and off to find another pattern because I really do like the yarn!

1-8-15 - through the first jo sharp stripe (2 balls) and halfway through the first sandnes. can’t tell yet how it’s going to turn out, but the sandnes is so soft… I might need to make another throw with just it!

I finished one ball of the jo sharp and realized I needed more yarn. of course 9 balls is all I have so I needed something to blend/add. settled on a neutral silk mohair and I’ll do wide stripes. 2 balls of jo sharp ~ 9”, so I’ll do that, then 8” of the sandnes for a finished piece ~ 60” long.

deep stash (2002) and I’ve had this project in my queue for a while …. today we bought new furniture for our keeping room and this yarn matches perfectly. I figure it’s time to knit myself this throw. (“my” chair is on back order until February…I’d love to have this ready when it arrives!)
