I finally admitted that I just don’t want to knit a jumper from 4-ply yarn. Or, at least, I don’t want to knit a jumper from this 4-ply yarn:
So, I’ve frogged my Isabella and, instead, have cast on a Lace Ribbon Scarf. This is going to be a birthday present for my Gran. There aren’t many people who’d appreciate getting a scarf for their birthday in the middle of June but if anyone will, my Gran will. It’s supposed to be a fairly light-weight scarf anyway but given how easily she feels the cold, she might even prefer a heavier one!
The pattern seems simple to follow and I’m sure the fact that I’m making lots of mistakes already (6 rows in) is because it is past bedtime and not because the pattern is difficult. Pictures of completed scarves on Ravelry look really pretty so I’m hoping this will turn out well. If it does, I might make one for myself as well. After all, I do have a jumper’s worth of yarn to use up, now.
