I saw a lovely and simple pattern in Interweave Crochet called the Marilyn Twinset. I thought it was pretty, but I couldn't really see myself in a fuzzy, pale pink mohair cardigan. (not really a stay at home mother sort of look, unless you're June Cleaver...) Funky, earthy, colorful, is more to my liking, so I chose to use this Noro Kureyon Sock. Well, I got halfway through the body of the cardigan and... eeep! I knew that the stripes weren't going to line up , but oh my goodness, one side is very dark and the other is very light. What can I do? I will continue to work on the issue; I am reluctant just to frog the whole thing, though it may come to that.
