Year of Projects - Project 2

I grabbed the yarn that I purchased at the great Arthur Bales sale at the beginning of the year that was allocated to make Monster a pullover, however I have not discovered that I am so not a Stylecraft Life yarn at all!  I am convinced that it's thinner than DK.  I have made two hoodies with other colourways and just thought it was those but now that I have tried another two colourways and it still feels more like 4ply than DK.

I have put it aside which is so unfortunate as the colourway that I choose for Monster is stunning, it's called Mixtures Autumn.  I have tried everything to get it to photograph, but it looks completely different, but on the Stylecraft website is a picture.  As I have this beautiful colour and a beautiful green also allocated to him, I might find a blanket that only requires 6 balls of two colours to crochet for him.

Now onto my Project 2.  Monster is always on my case that he wants a pullover that has different coloured sleeves to the body!  Don't ask me why and it sounds terrible to me.  But  I have decided that in my stash I have just enough grey and maroon to make it for him.  So Project 2's name is going to be Odd Sleeves.

No pictures today as I haven't started.  Tomorrow is another day and will have an update on Odd Sleeves.

Enjoy your day, mine is going to be full of knitting and rugby, what an awesome Saturday!

  1. Funny... I picked up a ball of Stylecraft Life in a wool shop this week and thought the same thing. For all my small niggles, I still like Hayfield Bonus as an acrylic DK. Good luck with the jumper!
