First side of Klaralund donePosted: February 14, 2005
The first side of the Klaralund is off the needles!
It’s really hard to take a picture that doesn’t distort the colors. If I could I would have taken it during daylight hours.
So I did something I probably shouldn’t have done. You see that green strip near the top? That green strip is where I started a new skein. The color right before it is purple, so there is literally no “fade” between the purple and green. I probably should have picked a skein that started with purple, but at that point I was really tired of the purple-y pinks and really wanted to see some green. I didn’t want this side to have just one teensy bit of green.
All of a sudden I’ve been plagued with self-doubts about knitting the Klaralund. I wanted it smaller than what is in the pattern so I purposely knit with a tighter gauge, but what if the sweater is too small? I cut an inch off the length because I didn’t want it to be too long, but what if it’s too short? And (this is a biggie) what if I ruin the sweater because I can’t seam it right??? I’ve never seamed before!! Maybe I will feel better about this when I’m less tired.
