That’s kind of a tough to see photo. We’ll have to make do.
I would really like to do the mystery cowl KAL I told you about the other day but I want to use stash yarn. I have an obscenely large stash and I’m trying to balance using stash with new so I don’t just keep buying new. So I went digging through the entire stash. I dug right down to the bottom hoping I would find yarn that met the requirements: 4 different colors, one can be variegated or speckled, each must be 175 yards. I’d hoped to find leftovers but no such luck. The leftover bits were almost all less than the 175 yards. I then picked through the single skeins. I won’t let myself pull one skein from a large quantity. Those have to be saved for a bigger project. Rules, I’ve got plenty of those.
So I pulled out those 5 skeins. Three are Spud & Chloe fine in brown, purple and green. They’ve been in stash for longer than I care to admit. The other two skeins aren’t perfect but could go. The brown/tan variegated is actually a sport weight but a lighter one. It’s barely heavier than the Spud & Chloe. The blue, purple, green variegated is fingering weight that is close but the green doesn’t go very well with the Spud & Chloe green which is super bright.
So I can’t decide what to do. Do I make the project? Which variegated yarn do I use? Should I rummage around here a bit more and see if I can shake out another better matching (by which I mean something that brings things together) skein? There is a lot of yarn around here. I’m sure I could turn up another skein or five.
