you remember that lovely cardigan I was working on for my friend's babe in Scotland?
well....this, people, is why you should always, ALWAYS ...
check the friggin' dyelots.
I knitted on the bands (using the new ball) at our knitting group, so didn't really take much notice until I got home. At first I thought it was just the grain of the knitting playing with the light...
can everyone say "delusional"? De-loo-sheeon-al
I grabbed the sleeve, which had already been knit with the new ball and it didn't take much to realise this was no play of light.
So now I am trying to work out how to a) get a gift to my friend's baby, who has already been born nigh on 7 days now, btw; and b) fix this without it looking like a disaster zone?
