Ingrid were you as surprised as I was about the color of the yarn? I thought it looked kind of bright blue or royal blue in the photos and was not expecting navy. I've never knit with yarn this dark before! I like the color, though.
I don't have enough experience to change the pattern much. I wish I did because I would have rather knit on the sleeves. Oh well, I have a good portion of each one done so far so it's not a huge deal. I actually like the stockinette portions. It's still very brain-draining for me to knit English!
Should I move this discussion to a thread in the KAL group? Or leave it here since we only have a couple of people. What happened to Jan? Are you knitting a stranded project after all?
