I am working on this:
I have about 250 yards of yarn but for whatever reason it's not enough. I come up short by about 3 inches or so. According to the pattern there is 4 inches from under the arm to the trim. I have enough of the yarn I am using to do the trim but not if I do the full 4 inches. This is a vintage yarn and the chances of finding anymore of this color is slim to none. So, I was figuring on maybe making a white stripe before the trim (the rest is a royal purple color) but should it be plain? I have started knitting the white but if it turns out awful or I have a better idea I will take it out. Or should I add in some design or beads or something? Well, it's for a baby so maybe no beads but..Anyone have suggestions?
