…and my first crochet hook. Since the pattern for the clothing project calls for it, I’m finally going to give hooking a shot.
And it looks like the peacock accent is absolutely going to work! I’m so pleased. A little patience does produce some rewarding results.
Broke the cappuccino yarn and added the second color (“stained glass”). It looks a bit like rhubarb. I’m trying very hard not to despair. And thinking coffee and rhubarb pie would be kind of amazing right now.
Day three of knitting the long clothing project and the cappuccino yarn is winding down. I might have just enough to finish up the “armhole that never ends” (as featured in Photo 2).
Always an issue when you’re knitting clothes — adjusting the pattern to fit a specific person’s proportions (in this case, my ginormous thickset arms). I’m using US 10.5 needles instead of US 11 as well and that creates a smaller gauge that also has to be accounted for. As a result, the 9″ armhole originally called for in the pattern is already up to 15″ and might need just one inch more.
Has anyone else had this issue?
So, the clothing project I’m working on calls for three balls of wool in a complementary tri-color arrangement. And, in theory, I know that a peacock accent should not work against the cappuccino yarn I’ve been using…
But I’m going to give it a shot anyway.
Look at it. Look. Look how pretty it is. How could I not?
