Wandring Aran Fields Capelet
Pattern: Wandering Aran Fields from Wrap Style
Designer: Norah Gaughan (all hail Norah!)
Yarn: 4 1/2 balls Plymouth Galway in Rose (#19)
Needle: exactly what the pattern says, ditto our friend Gauge
Notes: Maybe there's a bit about gauge for ribbing in there, but I'm sure I glossed over it, and I paid for it in the end. See, I should have been just 30-ish yards short of the total yarn required, yet I was 6 inches from finishing the collar when I ran out of yarn. Mild panicking ensued, as I purchased the yarn one week less than a year ago (hey, do I get some sort of prize for that?) so there's no chance I'd get the same dyelot. However, Depth of Field* had the color in stock, bless its yarn-stuffed soul. I was possibly looking at a) having to pay $10 for a measly ball of yarn due to shipping, and b) never finishing the darn thing because waiting for another ball to arrive would take the wind out of my sails.
The dyelots do not match, and you can tell, but do I care? No, sirs, I don't.
Yes, it still needs to be blocked. I finished it 15 minutes before my deadline (that is, I really wanted to wear it somewhere), and, thus, blocking will have to wait until I can bear to take it off.
