The Saga Continues

So, are you tired of hearing about my leg warmers? Well, I am about to be done with them. So here is a photo of one completed using the entire patternwith all my hand spun yarn - brown, and blue with cream. As you can see the pattern is barely distinguishable. So sad. Also, there was no way I would have had enough of either yarn.

The solution. My friend offered me some upcycled red yarn. Though it is acrylic it is super soft and recycled - both things I appreciate. Also it gave a brightness to the pattern that would stand out. To be sure I have enough brown (or at least closer to enough) I decided to only do a little over half the pattern. As you can see on the photos on the bottom. The left is the the half of the pattern I decided to do and the right is what my first leg warmer looks likes - I am about ready to bind off. I do believe the problem is solved, and I may need to spin a bit more brown, but that is do-able as I mentioned in my previous post.

  1. It's a bummer when that happens... all excited about a new project and it doesn't work out.
    I guess those are the ups and downs of a crafter. I like the red!!!

  2. i find mistakes, push you to create a 10 times better outcome, they are looking great :)

  3. I like both of them! I think the subtlety of the blue and brown is quite nice.
