Notes

Using handspun for the main color (roughly DK weight) and fingering weight for the contrast purple stripes on the numbered rows.

Started this after a particularly bad day to cheer myself up, hence the name.

Had just enough handspun to to do the final wedge and small size finishing in the purple contrast color.

Size and shape is great for covering the shoulders, not ideal for wearing around the neck as the ends aren’t long enough and the yarn I used was pretty bulky. Something thinner may drape better in the small size.
