Aloha. Howz it? Our ohana has had one busy week. This weekend has wonderfully been the opposite for us. Our crew has been chillaxin’, sleepin’ in late and passing the time away in the ways we know best. Warm weather has enabled my Big Kahuna to get more BBQing in which really helps me as all I do is prep the meat and he takes over the cooking + the house doesn’t get hotter from a used oven.
So here are the results of one poll:
While I know straight up that striping the black and the speckled would have produced awesome results, I would have hated to frog all that garter stitch work since I had to knit my way up to 303 stitches. So I like the option that won. I think it will result in an interesting shawl.
Yesterday I focused only on Edginess. As there are over 300+ stitches on my circular needle so progress was slow as I was only able to add on five more rows while listening to Inkheart:
The first photo gives you somewhat a whole picture of how my WIP is turning out so far. The second obviously shows you a close up of the Little House lace pattern. I have the first eight rows of the chart completed. In row nine, the instructions change a bit and I kept confusing myself last night reading that part, so I wrote Susan and am waiting for her response.
In the meantime, your two cents have spoken:
Jean’s Using Up Some of My Yarn Brick was the clear favorite:
So I will work on this week frogging Idle-Plummy-Wood. I originally thought to keep the plum on top and then stripe it with one of the other colors. However, if I use the light grey, I don’t think I’d like my jumper to go from a dark color to a light one. If I use the teal instead, I feel that would be too many dark colors, thus having no contrast. So I just may use the light grey on top and have it stripe with the plum which will be on bottom. That would mean I’d have to order more of the grey yarn. But that brings up another issue: I need to recheck if the alpaca/wool mix goes with the plum Cascade 128 Superwash. ( ु⁎ᴗ_ᴗ⁎)ु.｡oO Lots to think about but fun!
