She had a skein of Briggs & Little that was a close but not perfect match to the leftover skein I had in my possession from a different failed project. Learn from my mistake: Briggs & Little does not felt - too much lanolin. But it does make a beautiful warm cabled sweater.
I started knitting Trellis from Knitty alternating rows between both skeins. Briggs & Little are famously generous skeins (272 yards) so I didn't think I needed to actually *know* how many yards I had - I thought I was safe.
Needless to say, I ran out at the point I needed to add the collar while we were visiting the Gemmill side of my family.
We spent some time comparing the colourways under different lighting...
It is a hint too big but will be perfect when the weather is warmer. I'm so happy with the end result that I might just keep on knitting.
