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!
