This is how my Wednesday is shaping up.
I've been trying to get my modern tunic off the needles, but I was stalled at the pockets. Did I want pockets? They are more decorative than utilitarian. Could I resist the urge to shove my keys in them? When I finally decided that a couple little pockets would be a nice feature, I had to select a contrast color. The yardage for this project is very tight, and I didn't want to get all the way to the top only to realize I was short on yarn because I added cute little pockets to the bottom.
Yesterday I got some color feedback on Instagram. Thanks to everyone who weighed in. I even sent my daughter a text late last night, but she was already asleep and didn't cast her vote in time. I'm going with the gold. Gray was a close second, but I resisted.
After the pocket linings are made, they are knit right into the sweater. Painless assembly. I'm off to finish this construction project.
