Something new

I dug six skeins of a wool/cotton/llama yarn out of the stash and cast on a sleeveless top for myself. According to the pattern, my stitch gauge and yardage was a fine substitution. In reality, it was a very poor match – my yarn didn’t have the necessary drape, and my row gauge must have been way off because I was going through the yarn too quickly.
So, I frogged the thing and started something new with the yarn – and it seems a much better match. I’m now making a poncho for myself; I really like the simple cables running up the four corners of the poncho.
