I was working on the teddy hoodie in the darker colour. I got to the point where I thought "I'm not going to have enough yarn, am I?". I really thought one ball would be enough, 90yds, since I didn't use the whole ball of Thick n Quick...but being crochet, it took more. So, hen the dilemma was, do I keep going, hoping I can get another ball of the same dye lot, or just stop, I case I have to rip it back to blend in another dye lot. And....I felt the fabric was a bit stiff.
I was able to get another ball of the same dye lot, and I bought a larger crochet hook. The one I had, didn't have a size on it, and I couldn't figure it out! The new one is obviously larger, the new fabric is more pliable. Still a little stiff, but it seems in the larger sizes, the sizes jump up quite a bit between each size. The hoodie is a quick piece, but then I made the two tone ears and sewed them on. Then I reread her message and realized she wanted single coloured ears. Oops.
