Frogged Mon 10 Feb 2014 due to scratchiness of this yarn to reuse it in a lap-blanket
I have frogged my Minty Ridge sweater because the neckline is too scratchy next to my neck in that “tweedy” aran yarn and am going to knit a lap-blanket with it for when I am at the computer at night (there is often a chilly draft there from somewhere) based on this pattern’s stitch pattern with smaller needles (probably the 4.5 mm that I used in that sweater).

I will have to reknit the Ridgeway Lite sweater at some point with a less scratchy-to-me yarn (this has a viscose “tweedy” fibre in it which makes it scratchy-to-me - the normal non-tweed Hayfield Bonus Aran is very soft).

Hubby measured my wrist-to-wrist wingspan as 140 cm.

Re-started after almost finishing and then frogging because it was far too short in the body. Note to self, if it looks too small when you try it on before you knit the nalgar, it IS too small.
