Usually I'm pretty good at estimating how far my yarn will go. It took years, but now I can look at the cone or hank & pretty much know what the biggest size of scrappie I can make with it is. This time I ran out of rose too soon. I thought that with a couple of stripes of another color across the front & back that I could stretch out the rose & get the complete back & front finished. I was a little bit off. I debated ripping the sweater out, but since this is for a little girl, I decided that the lavender would look okay. I was disappointed though. I like to make the front first just for that reason.
We are going away for a couple of days this weekend. I am taking my laptop with me to stay connected to my store. I have had a couple of small orders come in but it is still slow. I am going to do them today before we leave.
Right now we are waiting for the yard service to get here & cut the grass before we leave. I hope that we can beat the traffic out of town. Happy 4th of July. (Please drive defensively all!!)
