My first post
This is my very first KAL. I have been a knitter for most of my life (I learned when I was about 5 years old - climbed on my mother's lap and asked her to teach me :)) and have made many knitted garments over that time.
I do like things with a challenge - and that's why this pattern jumped out at me.
To my surprise, I managed to find an Aussie online yarn store that had the exact yarn used in the pattern....and it was on sale - YIPPEE.
So I ordered a lovely shade of blue.This is where it started to get a little shaky. They only had limited stock of that shade - and not enough for me to make this jacket.
So I had to choose between Dark Grey and Cream - the only two shades they had enough of, in stock.
I decided Dark Grey would be better...mainly because I would never be able to keep a Cream jacket clean.
So we were off and flying again - YAY!
My order arrived in the mail today. The shade is gorgeous! Love it. I think it may even be better than the blue I originally chose.
BUT.......There's a problem. I only count 10x50g balls. I need 12!!!! ARGH!
So I have emailed the online store...and am waiting to hear back (I swear, I may just give up altogether if they can't send the other 2 balls I need...maybe)
So here's a pic of my yarn (it is beautiful yarn)
