SoI was happily knitting away on Habu-74 all weekend. I bound off sleeve #1 on Saturday afternoon and noticed something strange.While the cone of cotton yarn was still pretty hefty, the angora yarn...hmmm...I know it's thinner, but why was the cone visible?!? Was I running out of yarn? Nah...couldn't be. It's just thinner. It doesn't take up as much space.
So I put in a call to Habu this morning. Long story short, the woman asked me to send an email and she would have to check with her manager. I included the picture of the two cones and another of the inside labeling. I'm hoping it won't take too long for them to get me the extra that I need to finish this. But somehow, in the back of my mind I think it might take a while...
So, what's a girl to do?
Cast on for something new, of course! Nothing says pity party relief like a new project! So I pulled out the GGH Samoa and the Trellis instructions and casted on. The more I looked at it, the more I realized I wasn't in love with it. It's so cute, but the cable and the seed stitch weren't inspiring to me. So I pulled out my Rebecca Kids and Baby #6 to see if there was something cute and cabley [cables just in time for the Fall Cable KAL!].
Here's row #1 for your reading pleasure. The welt pattern is K2, P2.
Cast on 57 sts and work 1st WS row as foll: edge st, 17 sts welt pattern starting with K1, P2, then P3, 6st, welt pattern starting with K2, then P3, 6sts, welt pattern starting with K2, then P3, 17 sts Welt pattern starting with K2, edge st.
My head is spinning and I'm totally calling SHENANIGANS! It took me at least 30 minutes and 4 cast ons to figure it out. Anyone else confused by straight-forward, direct language?
