My favorite Atlanta knitting shop Knitch is having a huge sale this weekend. I ran out of the blue I'm using in the sky (Cascade 220 brand) so I clipped off a little bit of the end and took it with me to the sale. I also can't find my white skein so I was hoping to get that, too (I can't believe how much stuff I misplaced in our move to the new house!).
I went straight to the store's Cascade section and behold, none of the blue I needed or any white. Jason helped me find a similar color blue and the woman at the shop said either Knitch or Cascade was discontinuing the shade I've been using. Considering where I'm at in the scarf and how much farther I have to go, a slight shade change probably won't make a huge difference. But I'm still skeptical. I haven't started with the new color yet, but I took some pictures by the window to gauge the color difference.
It's definitely different. But not outrageously different. Different enough to notice, but still works for the color of the sky. I don't know... I'm picky about colors and details, but Jason said he thought it will work. Hope so... I bought five skeins of it!
Here are pics from last night with Jason helping out as a model.
