Right, well, I've been knitting a lot lately, but not on the ruffles scarf or the prayer shawl (which I really should be trying to finish). I've been working a lot on Twist and loving it. I should be finishing up the back today and can't wait until I get to work on the front with all the lovely cables. The cables on this sweater will be the most complex I've worked on to date. I think they will show up really well with the yarn I'm using, Knitpicks Wool of the Andes in Cranberry. I think I've sensed a potential snag though. I have 10 skeins of the WOA and I'm making the smallest size which calls for 1100 yds of yarn. My bag of 10 skeins works out to 1090 yds, which is a smidge short. I'm hoping I make it. So, here's my question: do you think Twist needs the collar fringe? I'm thinking if I omit the fringe I'll have enough yarn to finish it. I may be worrying a bit too soon, but I would just like to prepared with a plan B. I do really need to clear Ruffles and the prayer shawl off the needles. At least that's what I'm telling myself I must do before casting on for the Jaywalkers. I'm thinking that my will power isn't that strong, so I'm making a deal with myself. As soon as I finish one of those two projects, I may cast on for Jaywalker... I'm thinking the prayer shawl is closer to completion, so I should concentrate on that for a week or so. Ah the wheeling and dealing I must do.
