Yet Another Colour Conundrum
I'm working on the first sleeve of my cardigan. I'm using two balls of yarn, knitting two rows with each ball to avoid having very wide stripes in one colour. That's all well and good until the colours on the balls coincide. Then using two balls actually makes the problem worse! That lot of green looks completely different to the front and back of the cardigan and there were two lots of orange coming up. What to do, what to do? I knitted all evening, but when I came back to it this morning I decided I couldn't live with it. I undid a chunk, cut one ball and rejoined it with an orange section coming up instead of a green.
That's the little ball on the left. I hope that'll do the trick for a while.
