The end is near! No not the end of the world, the end of the Tivoli! But unfortunately, I have hit a snag. You see, I bought enough yarn for the size I was going to make, however when I did a swatch the number of stitches (152 sts) was more than the largest size (148 sts). I don’t have enough yarn, BUT I have a short torso so even though I won’t have the last 1 1/2" I tried it on and it looked okay. Hurray!
My fear now is that my short shrug will be lacking in yarn. I am using the other 2 balls of alpaca from my trip to San Francisco to make the shrug (the first 3 went to Gina my scarf buddy). No biggie if I don’t have enough since I’m big-time modifying the pattern. Hello? my version is 5 sts/1" and their’s is 5 sts/2"…..just a little different. It does make it easy though since you just double everything.
I got the yarn from my other scarf buddy, Nicholette. She sent me Malabrigo, Mala-freakin’-brigo!! I have been scouring my pattern books to find something that will enhance this gorgeous yarn. It is so pretty & soft I cannot think of any pattern that’ll be appropriate. I’m sure I’ll eventually find something this weekend
I have to get up early so have a great day!
