Sometimes the yarn has its own ideas.

I've been dinking with this thing for quite a while--trying to get the self-striping colors to match up on the sleeves and body--and the whole time, I was absolutely sure I was knitting a 60cmish kind of size.

Imagine my surprise when I finished seaming the pieces and, um, not so 60cmish after all.



On the other hand, I think it came out kind of nicely slouchy in a 70cm kind of way, eh? This is one of the rare synthetic yarns that I actually enjoy working with--James Brett "Marble," 100% acrylic. In the shop, uh-huh: http://www.squirrelmoonknits.etsy.com
