I’m completely heartbroken. My hopes have been dashed. My best plans of a simple, fun, and easy sweater are completely falling apart.
My yarn came in the mail. (Actually it came in the mail a few weeks ago, but I was so disappointed, I threw it into the closet and pretended it hadn’t showed up yet.) Usually new yarn is a source of joy, but ugh…
OK, it’s kind of hard to see in a photo, but take a closer look:
The ball of yarn on the left is the new yarn- it’s significantly more blue-gray. And the half-finished sweater is on the right- it’s a lovely pink-y lavender.
I know they look pretty similar in these photos (it’s been established my photography skills are lacking), but in real life, they’re significantly different. Even my husband commented. I’ve got the whole sweater finished with the old yarn, except for the left sleeve. I can’t have a sweater with one different color arm!
This, boys and girls, is why you buy all your yarn at once.
Now I’m going to go drink a lot of coffee and come up with a plan.
