What could be a worse thorn in the flesh than this?
Of the 17 skeins of this yarn...same dyelot number...
2 are waaaay golder...
5 others are much much richer and intense colors....
5 others are medium intensity..
and 5 others are light intensity.
I definitely need 15 for the sweater...so the 2 goldies can be kicked out of the crib.
So, I here I am: alternating rows
Rows 1, 2: Darker skeins
Rows 3, 4: Medium skeins
Rows 5 ,6: Lighter skeins
....etc, for the entire repeat which is 28 rows tall.
one of the darkers was much darker/richer
...so I split the skein 25 g/25g...and knit the ribbing for the front and back with it.
The freakin' ribbing is K3xP3 and 3.25" high/tall with US6 needles: 25 rows!!!
This sweater better be worth this aggravation.
