Mushroom Aran

I finally have the sleeves set aside and am working back and forth around the body. I’m beginning to wonder if it’s going to be too big. I’ll probably keep going a bit longer and then put it on yarn to check the size. She wants it big and cozy, but I’m not sure she wants to drown in it.

I never do gauge swatches. They always fail me. I often change needle and yarn size and just sort of guesstimate what size pattern will get the size I want with the sizes I’m working with. Sometimes I get it wrong. But I’m ok with ripping it out and starting over.

I’ve gotten kind of tunnel visioned with this sweater, so I’ve managed some real progress. I’m rolling with it though. The enthusiasm will turn to fatigue and I’ll switch off to something else soon enough. Oh, and the yarn color is called Mushroom. Earthy.
