I have started my Glenfiddich Copenhagen blue tunic again. This time I think I will do the sweater in pieces the way the pattern is written; work the back, work the front, seam the shoulders, pick up stitches and work the sleeves, seam sides, work the neck edge. I am going to knit with two skeins at the same time, alternating every other row, so working two rows with each skein. I’m using the two I’ve already started, the more-blue and the less-blue skeins. I’ve looked at all 6 skeins of yarn that I have, and there seem to be two that are more-blue, three that are less-blue, and one in the middle. I will save the middle-ish one for the neck edge and intermix the others as I go.
Well, I have the back piece started, and it is looking a little stripe-y to me. Are the skeins that different? Am I too picky? And why am I not working in the round? Would it be better to switch yarns every row? I could do that if I were working in the round; I would just need to make sure I twisted the yarn when I switched to make sure there are no holes. I don’t think it would be obvious, but I won’t know for sure unless I try it. I might be starting again.
