This week I swatched for:
8. Ravellenic Swap Hap
and 9. Twist
Both of these yarns are beautiful and I can't wait to cast on. I'll probably wait until the fall to cast on for Twist because I'd like to get a couple of projects finished first and the yarn has a fall feel to it.
Now the bad news....
On project #6 Alexandria I had this:
but unfortunately now I have this:
I was having issues making the 3 stitch applied i-cord border (you can see one stitch is really loose) and it didn't seem to be getting any better so I decided to frog it before I got too much more done. I think I'm going to replace the i-cord border and hem with a 3-4 stitch seed stitch border. It will be easier and will look neater, but I'll swatch first and see how it looks.
Ending on a positive note though, on # 2 Allegoro, I'm about to start the last stripe/ribbing which will be brown. In pattern, the next stripe should be blue but I don't have enough left to make a full stripe and I'd rather use it on the sleeves so my husband suggested going back to brown which will also match the neck.
