I finally carved out time to get my Mycroft on to the needles. This was supposed to be my birthday cast on but after reading the pattern I quickly realized I didn’t have the brain space on my birthday to deal with the short rows.
And I was correct, this was a brain bending cast on and first rows. I had the printed pattern and I had cross out tiny sections of the written directions as I went. That, and I counted ALL THE TIME. And this is only the first short row. I have like so many more to do.
I have put this back in the bag for when I can come up for air and work on this one uninterrupted. Totally invested in this project and it looks to get easier after the short rows….but I gotta get there first, lol.
The color of the yarn is soooo pretty! Does it appear true in your photo? What yarn is it? So many questions!
It’s malabrigo Rios in the Jupiter (49) color. It’s fairly true to color though I can’t tell what you are seeing on your screen. I can tell you that malabrigo acts like a hand dye and can vary wildly between batches. Of my 8 skeins….three look VERY different from the other five
I love Malabrigo for the reason you mentioned. I have typically only used it in a one skein project or in colorwork.
Good luck! I’m looking forward to seeing how it turns out.
