Tutti Fruity Martha

I feel that it has been quite sometime since I last posted on any projects.

I'm attempting to knit Martha from Rowan 37. I'm knitting the eyelet version using the same yarn suggested by the pattern. It is Rowan 4 Ply cotton. Do you think the colour a little too bright? I'm not sure what I'm thinking when I brought this yarn. Anyhow since I have 6 balls of it in the shade called Tutti Fruity in my stash, I decided to knit Martha.
According to the instructions, I will need 6 balls of yarn for the size XS. Now, I'm still knitting the back (at this time of this post I still got a few more rows before reaching the neck shaping). I've use up almost 2 balls now and I'm a bit worried that I won't have enough yarn. Since I got this yarn sometime back, I don't think I can get any extra ball from the same lot. Lesson learned, always get an extra ball for any project.

I have another project in progress. I'll post more about it in the next post.

It's looking really good too me, nice colour ;)
If you run out of yarn you can always make the sleeves shorter, that's my trick!
