Moving on, I decided I would start a Clockwork scarf, another project I've been planning for awhile. I've had a deep red skein of yarn for several years now. It's only 330 yards so not enough for a shawl on its own. No problem--I'll get a pretty contrast color and make Clockwork. Perfect. I ordered another skein of the same yarn--Three Irish Girls Kells Sport Merino, which arrived a few weeks ago. This was the first time I ordered directly from Three Irish Girls, and I was so impressed with the package, I had to take a picture.
So nice, right? I'm in love with the tape measure. But I digress--okay, back to the scarf. The yarns look gorgeous together, yes?
And having struck out with the Crystal vest, I decided tonight was the night to start Clockwork. I bought the pattern, downloaded the PDF, and was immediately struck by:
Color A--420 yards
Color B--295 yards
I don't have enough yarn. Each skein is only 330 yards. That sucks. And it was right there on the pattern website, which if I had only read, would have saved me buying a pattern that I won't be using anytime soon. Crap.
Fine, universe, fine. Have it your way. No new new project.
