The Sunday Cardigan is almost done. And of course I lost at yarn chicken!
More or less it’s just the ribbing borders left to do, but the mohair yarn ran out.
The wool is a vintage, long discontinued, variety and nowhere to be had – I peeped on other knitter’s Raverly stashes, scoured the internet, searched eBay and Etsy. Nothing. Such is life.
Levelling my melodramatic tone, rest reassured that there is a plan B in my drawer.
My vintage yarn stash came to the rescue. There are a handful shades of mohair that could be paired to complete the cardigan. After retrieving them, I selected three candidates. I think I will go with the mid blue. I like the darker blue better but it seems to be too much of a contrast with the main off white background of the other mohair. The light blue is too light in comparison to the blue flecks of the main yarn.
What do you think?
