Oh, and look how well the cream beads show up too. Yes - they're in there. I promise. I guess it never occurred to me to stash dive after the revised specs came out because look what I passed up for the whole cream-on-cream theme:Haiku "Punk" with black beads, Mongolian Cashmere "Vintage Rose" with silver beads, Mongolian Silk Cashmere "Hydrangea" with crystal beads, and Haiku "Fire & Ice" with black beads. But, I took the safe route. I took "guidelines" literally - something I rarely do. Speed limit 55 - not me. 1 cup of chocolate chips - no, I think two is better. 1 ounce of vodka - no, no - just a shake or three more please - it's for Carole! So what's up with this? I'm chalking it up to "some decisions are better left in the hands of the knitting Goddesses."
And this final decision does not qualify me for those ranks. My obsessive need to keep the chart all together, in one piece. It should not take a rocket scientist, or aforementioned knitting goddess to realize that the chart will no doubt be larger than the stole itself in no time. It should be a treat to haul around, don't you think? I'm thinking if all else fails, a good pair of scissors, a hole punch, my colored pencils, and glue gun for the beads and I could just wear the chart. Good decision!
