I was hoping to have a completed pair of pigeon socks to show you by now… but I’ve been a little distracted. Last week, my knitpicks order arrived. You may recall that I ordered some of this yarn…
What I got was a fair bit different….
Oh it’s the same colourway… at least according to the label. But the website shows (and lists) that Drawing Room is a mix of creams and pastels. As you can see, I got no cream, and shades that would do credit to an Easter egg on acid. Not exactly as described…. they are apparently sending me more yarn, saying I got the wrong one, but I suspect it will be more of the same… looking at other projects on Ravelry, this is what it really looks like.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind the yarn as it is… but it’s not at all what I was expecting. I didn’t have this problem with the Leaf colourway, so I’m a little flummoxed.
But I decided to press on, and make the cardigan anyway.
I know what you’re thinking…. “Holy Crapola, Valerie – you finished the whole thing already!?!?”
Yes… yes I did. In six days. I’ll do a proper FO post when I get modeled shots, but I can tell you, it’s chunky yarn – so that fast knitting isn’t all me – the yarn did a lot of the work! It’s going to look great with my dresses and now is the perfect time of year to wear it!
