Stash Enhancement

I got a bit of Spinning Stash Enhancement right before Christmas that I hadn't shown you so I figured I'd trot it out today and give you a break from more pictures of the Opalessence. These are single batts from two different sets of Kitchen Sink Batts from the Knotty Sheep. On the right is Chilly Cheeks and on the left is Twilight Keeper. I can't remember exactly what fibers are in each of them (they're called Kitchen Sink Batts for a reason), but Kary usually blends two or more types of wool with some silk (I know that the white streaks in Twilight Keeper are silk) and adds a bit of Angelina (a sparkly synthetic fiber that makes the spun yarn twinkle). I really can't recommend Kary's batts enough, her colors are beautiful and her fiber blends are so soft and wonderful. I've even bought some undyed batts from her when she destashed!

I really have a question about your sweater Bristow. I don't understand the directions on the fronts, about shaping the neckline. I am knitting in size medium, and it seems to me that I can't both make the front 21" and the armhole 9.5" at the same time.

Lynn, I'd love to help you, but blogger doesn't give me your email address - if you'll post it in the comments, once I get it, I'll delete the comment

Lynn, the fronts should measure 23 inches and the armhole 9.5 inches. I apologize for the typo in the pattern. This should fix your problem since before you started the neck shaping your armholes were 7.5 inches and your fronts were 21 inches. The shoulder shaping takes approximately 1 inch and the finished length for the fronts and back is 24 inches in your size.

Shame on you Melanie! Now I want to go shopping!

Ah, but you are a lucky girl to have some of Kary's fibery goodness!
