Revisiting the Wingspan

I reached out to the dyer of the yarn I was using for the Wingspan, to see if she had more. She did not, but she had a couple options with similar colors that I got to try out. 

In the end, I decided on a coordinating semi-solid yarn that pulls the blue from the main yarn, and striped them together before switching to the new yarn. I think it looks pretty good. 

The lighter color will be used across the top edge to finish it, so it should tie in well. There will be 2 points in the lighter yarn, which will balance it out. 

Today I did some rearranging in the craft room. I’m trying to get more organized, and am clearing out some old stuff. Anyway, I had to move my yarn to a new shelf. A few minutes ago I took the little ball of leftover dark yarn from the Wingspan in to put it away. 
Guess what I found on the sock yarn shelf. 

Yep, a whole ‘nother skein of the dark yarn…

  1. *facepalm*. I really like the stripes and new yarn for the wingspan, I vote save the new old yarn for something else 🙂

      It was a real struggle for a few minutes, but I decided I don’t want to rip back again; so I am continuing with the new yarn. But I keep glaring at the second skein…
