I feel good! ...I knew that I would!
Well, I got past the first chart and am thinking my yarn choice is too variegated. There are some awesome variegated Firestarter projects but this yarn - I love - Iris Sibirica by Wollmeise may be a bit too busy - the colors are each so vibrant, maybe they are fighting for attention? I think my cable pattern is lost in translation, the picture is kind of pathetic to boot. I am finding this pattern challenging (in a fun way), so I kinda want to capitalize on that cable pattern. Show me the cables!
So I have just finished the short row in a new colorway, Veilchen, also by Wollmeise. It's a pretty purpley blue. I also decided to go down a 1/2 needle size because my first try seemed a bit baggy - so I made some key decisions before I was beyond the point of no return, ah...early success! I feel good!
