Fortuitous mistakes

I ordered the Wrong Yarn a few months back. I thought the sock pattern I had fallen in love with called for sport yarn, so I bought a bunch of gorgeous colors (2 skeins each) of Comfy Sport (cotton) from Knitpicks. I was totally drawn in by the little "goodbye" flags telling me a color - a beautiful, mouth-watering color - was being discontinued.

Turns out, the sock pattern called for fingering weight after all.  Figuring out what to do with a mere 100 grams per color was a challenge that has been at least partially dealt with by whipping up a little red vest for my nephew, Mr. Dimples

I take really awful pictures lately, but here's more or less what it looks like:


Now I need to get it in the mail quick, before he outgrows it!

  1. Awww! That is so cute. I love it.

    Those are owls, aren't they? Big sister is gonna be jealous. But she already has her lovely pirate vest (which she requests regularly).

    And aren't those "goodbye" marks terrible! I have trouble resisting them. I *wish* I understood their thought process. They get rid of some really lovely colors.
