i know it happens to everyone...

i love the yarn (colors 38 - navy and 40 - a variegated lime, gray and smoke). i love the pattern. i hate the yarn worked up in the pattern. i have now frogged this thing twice... the first time because i was having trouble with the seed stitch. the second time because, well, it just wasn't showing me the love...
so, it hit the frog pond... rip it, rip it, rip it... the part that didn't work for me was the seed stitch and yoke all being navy and then not integrating the variegated until the body of the sweater... initially i had 4 skeins of navy and 2 variegated, but I picked up 2 more variegated and now have equal of each...

and will follow the pattern in terms of shaping, but will be doing it all in stockinette and will stripe it. It looks great so far... and I am excited about it, which is very important.

Thanks for the comment! The baby blanket is adorable! I never would have thought to use those colors together. I definitely have to sit down and play for a while to figure out where I'm going with it!

Best,
Ashley
