Monday Morning Weigh In: No Pain, No Gain
January 28, 2013
Progress on the Alice Starmore Donegal extravaganza continues. This is absolutely the least efficient means of manufacturing a sleeve that I have encountered.
These Rowan Donegal Lambswool yarns continues to amaze and amuse. At night it’s so dim that Bramble and Pickle are indistinguishable. Elderberry and Roseberry might as well be the same color.
But in the light of day, it’s pretty dazzling to see.
One sleeve to go, a neckline to futz around with, and some final weaving. Piece of cake: should have this done by 2016 no problem.
The pattern is 28 stitches wide, 27 rows long. I find it impossible to memorize, in any way, so it has a real paint-by-numbers feel to it. This is one of those projects that really tests our MDK Rule: No project is too ambitious if you crave the result enough.
I crave, I crave! Hurts so good!
