Chilly, damp weather is on the way... in Bergen. A little girl needs WOOL!
This will be the fourth (or fifth) pair of warm pants. But it turned into a saga of yarn! (If I was clever, I would compose a rhyme...)
It started with... "I need wool, superwash wool, in girly colors, of a certain weight..." Normally, a knitter would have a look around the LYS, however, there exists none within 50 miles. (sigh) That just makes me dumpster dive into my stash, and there, sitting in my living room is a big BIG BIG bowl of yarn. (You know what I mean, Denise/Kay/Jennifer/Jenny. It's been there for years.) Fingering weight (used double), various colors, and I decide to use it up. (This yarn was purchased for a sweater, but I lost the pattern and didn't find it until 3 years later. In the meantime, the size became obsolete, and I got fed up with trying to locate it and used some of it for other projects: Here, here and here. (Seven projects in all; see below for Ravelry link.)
But without knowing how much I needed (exactly), I started out using two colors at a time.
And then another color combination, and...
Another combination. Now I knew how much, but not really crazy about mirroring my original, so...
I ripped it back and ... made a new combination!
This one I like! It's a keeper.
