Turning "Yarn Chicken" Into an Advantage! Silent by Kim Hargreaves

Ok, you may not have heard of the term "yarn chicken" but I guarantee you've been through it before! It's not different from playing "chicken" while driving. You see yourself hurtling inevitably towards a running-out-of-yarn disaster but you refuse to buy another ball because you know that you will *WIN* and have just enough to finish your project... TAKE THAT, YARN!

It sucks, really, because you start second-guessing yourself at the beginning of every row because tsk, tsk, you know better...

This is Silent by Kim Hargreaves, made with Rowan Kidsilk Haze. It's from her first "capsule collection" called CRUSH.

I'm not really sure what the "capsule collection" distinction is, except that she usually has 21 designs in a book and this one only has 12. The designs are not significantly different from her other books... in fact, I spied this very similar one in her next regular-format book!

I chose Silent because, yes, it's lovely…
