Okay, I haven't been killed in Sock Wars yet, nor have I heard confirmation of achieving a kill, but nevertheless, I had some leftover yarn. Turns out that doubled, it comes pretty close to the gauge of the Rosarios Ecowool I was using. It's a little small, but then the doubled Indiecita Alpaca I was using for the rib is a little big, and what the heck — it'll all block out in the end. So I added a tan stripe to the Cozy Cables sweater. You can see here (it's lying on its side, with the neck to the left) that I've finished the front and am rapidly zooming along the back. Soon I'll add sleeves and run out of yarn again :-) But I found a couple of scraps I can stripe with to help with that. So cross your fingers, I'll have a rather.. exciting tot sweater for charity in a couple of days.
Good thing that kids like colorful objects!
Apropos of nothing: is this not the coolest spider? Check out his scary white ZZZZs in the web. I have no idea how he (well, probably she) did that, but it rocks. Such a gorgeous spider. I love spiders. Apologies to all of you who are horrified by them.
