I know... you expected to see some fantastic shawl progress... finished edging, beautiful handspun, linen stitch glory.
But, as the title implies... you're not going to get it. The edging is not done. It is sitting in the time-out chair contemplating its bad behaviour.
Why, you ask?
Well you see. I ran out of yarn. Now, that's totally not the knitting's fault. I knew I didn't have enough yarn to start with - but it was no biggie. I'd gotten this particular ball from Mom, and I knew for a fact she had at least two or three more.
So, I stopped by on Monday to steal another skein. I joined it, knit a few leaves and went WTF?
See how much bigger and fuller the leaves on the right are? That's the old yarn. The new yarn is noticeably lighter.
I don't get it. It's all Regia 4 ply. I don't have the ball band to compare lots, but it all came from Mom and she's usually pretty good about matching lots. It's possible it was separate purchases (she can't remember) and I'd understand different shade of black - but a different weight?!?
Mom has one more ball of Regia kicking around. I'm going to check it out tomorrow and see if it's any better.
If not... looks like I'll be starting the edging all over again..... *sigh*
