I expected to have Clue 3 done by today. As usual, Stephen had different plans. This is all the progress I’ve got to show for my weekend.
Wedge 1 is complete! I’m calling that a win for the moment! Now how to proceed? Wedge 1 has left me with 70 g of a 100 g skein, meaning Wedge 1 used 30 g. We all know these wedges grow…I am doubtful that 70 g is enough to complete 2 more wedges.
I thought, perhaps, I could stretch my yardage by adding a stripe of Color B between wedges. It’s still a solid plan. Unfortunately, my execution left something to be desired. I put my stripe on the wrong side…I had unsightly purl bumps. I usually wave off ‘mistakes’ and embrace ‘design features’ but this was too much. Purl bumps are just TOO offensive. So I set about to tink back two 500+ stitch rows. It’s taken days. There may have even been a trip to the timeout corner. I stopped short of corporal punishment, though. That wouldn’t have benefitted anyone.
So, new plan…knit until I run out, add more colors as necessary. Rainbow stripes are the best design feature ever, anyhow!
