Green Sprite update: uh-oh.

I guess, in my heart of hearts, I knew this was coming. That doesn’t stop me worrying about it and employing delaying tactics. Tactics like arranging my knitting on the table and taking photos of it for forty-five minutes before remembering I’ve left the camera on “sunset” mode.

I'm just trying to distract myself from the heartbreak.

I’m running low on yarn. Seriously low. As in, I have to completely revise my plan.

Original design:


…now we’re looking at:

sexy! right...?

Damage control, dudes. First decision: short sleeves. Not enough yarn for that, either. Second decision: no sleeves! Yeah! A slashed-throat sleeveless top. Totally going to work. Totally…

Come on, breathe, we can do this...

…hell. That right there is Very Little Yarn.

The big dilemma: the neckline. I had planned to trim the neckline and sleeves armholes (*sigh*) with a little something-something, but at this stage I think I’d be grateful to have enough yarn to pick up stitches and work a single round to tidy it.

The yarn ball I’m working from still has the gauge swatch attached: score one for paranoid yarn-hoarding, friends! So I guess I’ll unravel it, pick up the stitches around the neckline and armholes and see what happens. Hopefully: triumph! Triumph happens!
