Nice surprise

In fall of 2007 I started a FLAK which is a cabled sweater. You can read about my adventures with that sweater in the posts starting here. It was a really wonderful deep heathered brown and I adored it. My life being what is is somehow this sweater start got misplaced. Then I got some unwelcome guests in my life and since then I have been tossing bug eaten fiber, yarn and projects as I find them. I did find some of my brown yarn that had been ruined and tossed it. Found the cable/texture swatch and to be honest while I have not tossed it yet it is looking pretty ratty. I should toss it but just can't bring my self to do it. Until now :-) While emptying yet another box of JUNK that does not belong to me I found a small plastic bin that had been tossed into it. Always on the lookout for nice plastic bins I opened it and found WOW it had yarn in it hmm a rather odd mix of yarns too. 2 balls each of a green fingering weight, a blue worsted weight and a sage green bulky... Then I noticed the brown yarn. Whoo hooo I had found my "lost" sweater. Grin still nice and clean and with all the markers in place etc plus 2 full balls on my brown and a partial ball of the brown.

The knitted sweater part I found.

A nice surprise but still not my FLAK as 2 and maybe a half ball of yarn are not going to make nearly a whole sweater. But there is that lovely camel Galway I have 9 balls of and maybe they will play well together. Hmmm time for some swatches, it would be nice to at least know all that time spent swatching and editing was not totally wasted.
