Yesterday was picture perfect in Chicago. 70s and Sunny.
We walked along the Lake in Fort Sheridan.
The water looked like the ocean.
There were so many aquas and blues and the sky was clear.
There are many wildflowers peaking now.
Yesterday was also perfect because I finished my shrug and I love it.
I'm sure I'll knit another.
I had 9 skeins of Acadia and did not use them all.
One of the skeins, although they all shared the same dye lot number, was lighter than the others.
Of course, I did not notice this until I was knitting the end cuff.
Once I put it on, Fireman said he really couldn't see the area of the lighter skein.
Fireman is, well, critical so he would have said so if It was a problem.
I talked to my LYS and Lynette said there can be quite a bit of variation even within the same dye lots.
I continue to learn by mistakes with this craft that I adore.
Perhaps when I give it a wash it will be even less of an issue.
The pictures of the Lake were just too pretty not to show you today;
tomorrow will be shrug day.
