Resistance is futile... part 2

31 August 2010

Continuation of the Mini Mochi sweater is coming along... slowly...
The first sleeve is finished...  As I like my sleeves to match and the colour variation in the ball of yarn were not going to allow me to get a repeat without a lot of wastage if at all...

I carefully unravelled the yarn and cut it at the end of each colour repeat (tricky as the colours blend through each other beautifully) and then divided each of these exactly in half so that I get the movment of the colours on the sleeves to match each other as perfectly as possible.  I just like them to match and if they don't I am not as happy with them. 

It is turning out to be a very pretty sweater.

    It's a wonderful sweater! I love the colors and the way in which you were able to get both sleeves to match. Thanks for sharing the info.

    Do I dare ask the color number - I would love to knit a sweater using the same colors.

    You have a very special blog.

    When I want my sleeves to match I put both sleeves on the needles at the same time and start with the same color. It's not perfect, but it's close enough for me. Try it and let me know if it works for you.
