slow progress

Tonight the dye is supposed to arrive. Yeah! Meanwhile, I was hoping to get at least one sample cape done. Not a chance. I'm still on the second color of the blue/green kit. I keep forgetting to put on the headset before answering the phone--I could get a lot more done and be a lot less squirmy during long conversations. (My husband is out of town again.)
I do like how it's coming out so far.

I was concerned about the yellow spots stacking like that in the chenille part, but actually, I like the effect. Since they're lined up so perfectly, it just looks like one tall stitch. I think scattered blotches would be less pleasant. But maybe I'm just telling myself that so I don't have to take out these two rows and put the increases in the second instead of the first row.

So far I'm really enjoying the textures of the yarns and the way they interact. I'm still amazed there weren't more glitches with the online ordering and how the colors look together. They're all going to be fabulous, if I do say so myself. I have one set of yarn for each kit on display in my kitchen (the future sample garments), and every time I walk by I have to admire them and pet the yarn. I wish I could work on all of the kits right now.
