Well, the Mora mitten is back in the ball -- wh. by the way was not a simple matter, since of course it's a center-pull ball, and I think my first attempt at coping with this will probably not be successful, which was winding another center-pull ball with the ripped-out portion and shoving it back into the original center. It doesn't pull out easily at all, even though I figured theoretically this should work. We'll see. It wasn't as onerous as I feared, taking the two-end knitting apart, but perhaps that was because I hadn't actually worked far enough to make two separated piles of kinky wool an issue. It's good to notice your mistakes early! (she said dryly).
(Am relieved to see, by the way, that the amount of dyed wool needed for this particular mitten is barely one arm's length. I'm hoping to use the rest of this Black Cherry-dyed length, wh. is roughly the size of a golf ball, for a bit of color-work on a fingerless pair with the second skein of the Mora wool...)
I did start the Parley cardigan last night, while the Mora wool is resting. I didn't even look at other colors of the Briggs & Little when I ordered it (though I see now there are quite a lot), just thought to myself "yes, that one!" --
-- which is Mulberry, here in one of the photos from the book. I was having hard time capturing the color the other day and thought I would have to do lots of fiddling, whether by adjusting the camera settings or "fixing it in post", but it seems to have come out all right this morning, so perhaps the gloom is not such a bad thing!
