Not Quite FO?

 

Nothing this week has been quite right, so it’s no surprise that today’s FO is not quite an FO yet.  The progress is good, but as I suspected all along, I had no where near enough yarn!  Damn you, Crochet!

So far, so good.  It’s lovely!  I want to wear it but this happens…

It’s just not big enough.  They aren’t called Shlankets (half shawl/half blanket) for nothing! I’ve got one more ball of Mini Mochi but it’s a different color.  I don’t think it works.

I think I need more yarn.

(Who am I kidding?  I can’t say that with a straight face anymore.  Of course, I need more yarn.  DUH!  I’ve already browsed Ravelry stashes twice, I just need to send a few messages!  There’s quite a bit of this color in the wild… come to me pretties, come to me!  You will be mine!)


And to kick your weekend off, check out this link for a tour of Stephen West’s stash and a color chat with Taiu of Koigu!  They’re the first two Knit Stars to share with us!   Looks like we’ll get two more videos next week too!
