WIP It!

Starting a project is so very therapeutic. Finishing, not so much.
This my second Kepler sweater in progress. The first, made from luscious Frog Tree Merino, shrank a bit and was gifted onward. Kepler the second is being knit with oh so soft Madeline Tosh Merino in the Tannehill colorway.

I have a love-hate relationship with her yarns. There. I said it publicly. And it felt good.
Any who. Her color dyeing is awesome. My beef is that there is precious little consistency in the dye lots and they are small. Small as in, too bad, so sad big girls. No sweaters worth of MadTosh for you! That sucks dinosaur eggs.

So this was the best that I could do for a MadTosh sweater. 3/4 sleeves and ill matching parts. Sigh. It only took me a year and a half to get over the anger to two seams away from completion. Just wait until I learn to dye my own yarn. Just wait!

I can't see the inconsistency of color, but if you stand just so in the light maybe you won't notice. I believe that absolutely no one else will notice.

It's a beautiful sweater.
