I was right. I started the edging (in seed stitch instead of the rib specified) and ran out about 3/4" in. Argh! I'm not sure what went wrong. I used 3 balls on elann's Sonata (115 yards each), which is actually more yards than the called for 3 skeins of Knitpicks Elegance. So, I went to elann to get the 1 more ball needed (hoping the dye lot is the same, or at least not too different looking) and ended up tacking on 6 balls of Devon, the 100% Virgin wool that others have been raving about. I think I have a pattern picked out for that one:
Embellished V-Neck from Vogue Knits Fall 2006. I'll need to knit a bigger size to get the correct gauge since the pattern calls for 21 sts/4" and Devon knits up at 25 sts.
I swatched for Arisaig last night and have re-written the pattern for a 34" finished size and to take Liz's modifications into account. I hope to cast on tonight!
