A little blog about me, knitting, dogs, and my twisted little take on life in general.
I'm a little perturbed at the moment. I am typically very good at reading the yarn label to find out fiber content, gauge, and most importantly, yardage. I'm so good at it that the information trips off my tongue without missing a beat when I'm asked about a certain yarn.......so now I look like an idiot. The yarn is Cascade 220 Sport. The little sister to my go-to Cascade 220. Both 100 Percent Peruvian Wool, both made by Cascade, and since the 220 is in the title of both I assumed they both had 220 yards. They don't. I can't tell you how disappointed this makes me. I assumed that because the Cascade 220 Sport said '220' in the name that it indeed had 220 yards. Guess what? It doesn't, it only has 164 yards! NOW I don't have enough yarn to finish the hat I just cast on for, UGGHHH!!! However I do know where I can get my hands on another skein of it and be almost 100% sure that it's the same dye-lot.........it's going to require some serious begging but a knitters gotta do what a knitters gotta do....
So here are the stats of what I cast on:
Pattern: Autumn Vines Beret
Designer: Alana Dakos
Yarn: MEH!!!! (Cascade 164 Sport)
Saying so many bad words in my head right now.......so many
