You win some, you lose some.
I lost this one.
This is my Everyday Shawl. I'm knitting this shawl with a gradient bundle and wanted to use as much of the bundle as possible. The pattern includes directions for working the shawl based on percentages of yarn total. I thought this was a foolproof way to make sure all the colors would be equally represented. I crunched the numbers and cut back on one of the lighter colors so I would be sure to include the darkest color.
My numbers must have been off because I'm closing in on the finish line, and I've run out of the darkest color. I was working on this in the wee hours last night and resisted the urge to run the numbers again. It doesn't really matter at this point. I have the small ball of the lighter color that I had set aside, but I'm not about to rip back. I have more of the darkest color, and I'll keep going with that instead. So much for planning and preparation.
I captured this week's color inspiration as the sun was setting on Frog Pond.
