I’ve been knitting the Ranger sweater for my son, Prithvi, for a while now and despite some gauge checks that had to be done mid knitting and the fact that he seems to be growing faster than I can knit, I was progressing at a steady clip on this project. I joined the sleeves to the body of the sweater and kept making my way up the yoke decreases when I went to my bag of Malabrigo Rios to pick out my next skein to join and continue. Nothing there! I have run out of yarn, folks and I’ve got plenty more sweater to knit! Gah, gah, gah!!!!
I’ve got two skeins on order from Jimmy Beans Wool and I’m really, really, really hoping the dyelots are similar otherwise, he’s going to have a sweater with a big band across the yoke in a different color. Oh, and different colored button bands too. Buttonbands, I can live with but the band across the yoke… not happening! I could overdye it if the colors are way off but seeing this is a navy blue, I’m not sure what color my overdye experiment will achieve. I hoping not muddy brown!! What I’m really, really, really hoping for is that the dyelots match!
