Birch is done!! I finished late last night which means that this project took me exactly two weeks. And I didn't run out of yarn! Pictures will follow in a few days. It's going to take awhile to block since it's huge!
I decided that my next big project will be a sweater around the time I fell in love with Katy from Debbie Bliss' Cotton Angora book. I've had some red and black Mission Falls languishing in my stash and I think this is their destiny.
I have a problem though. The pattern calls for 13 balls of Cotton Angora which is 78m per ball, the same yardage as Mission Falls. I have 13 balls of Mission Falls but 10 are red and 3 are black.
Here's what I was thinking: I want to make the v-neck in black so I was going to make the cuffs and the hem black too. But I have no idea if this will leave me with enough red to make the body. I figure that I have some options. I could eliminate some of the cables from the back or the sleeves, but I'm worried that would ruin the look of the sweater. I guess I could always buy more yarn, which would probably be the intelligent thing to do. Any comments, concerns or encouragement would be appreciated :)
