Was very excited to have time to work on my striped vest today.
I've been completely winging how wide each stripe is, based on how much yarn of each colour I have, and how the stripes look to my eye. This worked pretty well until I got to the neckline and realized that dark grey needs to be a wide stripe. And wouldn't ya know, it's the one colour where I just don't have nearly enough.
To make up for it, the blue stripe needs to be wider. I didn't figure this out until I'd finished all the way up to the right shoulder of the vest, so back I ripped, taking out three colours and the entire neck shaping until I was back into the blue.
Net knitting so far today: negative ten rounds! Argh.
