Last night I came across the pattern, Nelchina. I like a lot of Caitlin Hunter’s patterns and was surprised that I’ve never come across that one and it’s been out since January, 2018.
This morning I went over and dug around through the stash to see what yarn I could find that might work. I found these three that were to go into another project that I’ll probably never make.
I told Vince . . I want to make this sweater. I have some of the yarn but I need more. What do you think about me ordering yarn. He said . . and I quote: “You know I don’t care if you order yarn!” Well, then . . why all the complaining when it comes in?? I didn’t say that .. I just thought it.
I wanted something really dark for the main part of the sweater. I have Badlands but I think it has too much gray. Then I thought I wanted purple but when I held the Sugar Plum (middle one shown above) up against the purples, it made the Sugar Plum not so pretty. Vince suggested green so I ordered Cactus. I think it’s appropriate that, living hear, I use as much of the Cactus and Snake colorways as possible.
That’s the Cactus picture from Eat, Sleep, Knit. I think it will work quite nicely!
