The Next Project

Truthfully, it’s not the next, not the next but maybe the next project!  🙂   Whew, I need to knit faster because there are more projects than I’m finding time for but I’m making good use of my alone time .. although those dandelions are calling my name and I should be cutting grass today instead of knitting . . but I can always cut the grass tomorrow . . right?

While wasting time on Ravelry, I came across the Pamuya pattern.  It’s so gorgeous done in Wollmeise yarn but even though the pattern says it can be done with one skein of the yarn, most everyone who made it ran just a tad short.  Getting Wollmeise yarn is right next to impossible.  When The Loopy Ewe has it, they limit you to one skein per color so it would be purely accidental to ever get two skeins of the same color – it would mean I’d just have to get lucky enough to get the same color in two different Wollmeise updates.

Bugga yarn will work and I have plenty of that.  Two skeins will be needed so I went through the Bugga stash and found these and if you don’t mind, would you please tell me which yarn you think I should use.  If you have a reason for your choice, you can tell me that too if you’d like.

These links may get you to better pictures.  Since most of the Bugga yarn is out of stock . . always  . . if the links don’t work, try to guess on a choice by clicking on the above picture to make it bigger.

    I would say to use either of the blues or the purple. I am just not digging the green as a shawl type color. It is a very pretty design!

    Beyer’s Jewel Scarab – I’m sooo into the spring greens at this time of year. I look out my home office window and literally watch the leaves grow!

    Lynne says

    I would pick the blue lobster, it would look great with your new hair colorado and really set it off well

    Kathie L in MD says

    Definitely Shelob, purple has been my favorite color since I was a little kid.

  5. 6

    Deb S. says

    I’m usually drawn to lime green since that’s one of my favorite colors but for this shawl I think I’d pick the light blue in the top left of your photo. I think that color will show off the laciness of the pattern. Cant wait to see what you decide and to see the finished shawl.

  6. 8


    I’d go with Mr. Nancy. I thought it was gray at first until I enlarged your link. I think it would be dynamite worn with dressy black slacks, a black silk blouse and some gorgeous jewelry for an event. But that’s just me! LOL

  7. 9


    I vote for Beyer’s Jewel Scarab. However, if you don’t choose that yarn, just send it to me and you won’t have to pack it. You are welcome!

  8. 11


    I love Mr. Nancy and once I read what Vicky wrote, I think she has the perfect plan but then I love Two Butterflies Went Out At Noon (or I just love the name 🙂 ) that would look great with jeans.

    And now I want to knit myself a shawl!

    Marla says

    Shelob or Blue Lobster are both stunning colors. Can’t wait to see what you make of this!

  10. 14

    Gwynette in NW Arkansas says

    Oleander Hawk Moth has such intricate color changes and will look romantically soft, especially with red hair. Did I miss something while on vacation??? ……. LOL

  11. 15

    Karen says

    I like the blue – actually I like them all but this morning I’m drawn to the blue. That could change by this afternoon!

  12. 18

    Donna says

    Oleander Hawk Moth sure does have some pretty color variations. I think it would work up awfully pretty and could be worn with so many colors. All of the yarns are beautiful. I just think the green would look great with your “red” hair.

  13. 19


    Two Butterflies Went Out At Noon would go well with your overall coloring – and your hair may not stay the same color – everyone needs blue in their wardrobe. This particular one has pizazz !!! Judy C

  14. 20


    Beyer’s Jewel Scarab – I think the lace pattern would be highlighted with this color. Question – when you block a scarf do you dampen it first, then block it? Or do you block it, then dampen it? I’m working on the drop-stitch scarf and plan to block it to highlight the lacey effect of the dropped stitches. Thanks.

  15. 21


    Blue Nancy is first choice. Well, because that is an amazing shade of blue. (When you are done I know a place where it is cold and it would be well used… 🙂

    Second is Oleander Green, just because of the color variation and how it would brighten any day.

    pdudgeon says

    blue lobster, and i would add a row of black scallops to the edge of the shawl to mimic the shadow effect in the picture.
    very dramatic!

  17. 23

    Tina says

    It was between Two Butterflies at Noon and Oleander Hawk Moth. I’ll go with the moth because of your new hair color. Greens go better with red than blue, although denim goes with anything, even (especially?) diamonds.

  18. 24

    Kelly E says

    I think the Beyer’s Jewel Scarab. It just seems like a lighter color for a lighter shawl. Plus isn’t lime green your color?

  19. 25

    Balinda says

    I like the Oleander but i don’t think you would see the pattern in the shawl with the varigated colors. So I would choose the Two Butterflies or the Shelob. They are light enough to see the pattern in but not too varigated for the pattern to get lost.

    Any of these yarns will be beautiful in a shawl!

  20. 26


    They would all look wonderful, but I’m loving the Two Butterflies or Mr. Nancy. They just seem as if they would look fantastic knitted up in this shawl pattern.

    I like Blue Lobster. It seems to have a little more color contrast, which I think would show really nicely in the finished shawl.

  22. 29

    Diann Smith says

    Mr. Nancy or TWO Butterflies would look good with your hair…and probably go with a lot of color choices in clothes.

  23. 31


    Even in the summer, my sister always has a scarf in her bag since so many places keep the air conditioners on high. A light shawl around her shoulders and neck keep the aches away for her. I think you’ll find that occuring in Texas so I would select the color that would accent most of your clothes. If you wear lighter colors, then I would go to the dark blue, purple or the black/grey. If you wear denim, then the greens would look great.

    Of course, these are all lovely selections, so make many different shawls and lacy scarves!

  24. 32


    I would say Shelob at first because i love purple, its my favorite color. However if you make it in the Blue Lobster with the darkness in it it would make a good evening or dressup shawl worn with a simple black or blue clothing and you would a simple and yet great way to elevate an outfit.

  25. 33

    Sharon says

    Who could pass on a name like “Two butterflies went out at noon”? Plus it is such a pretty color. So that is my choice.

  26. 34


    top left! Because of the name of the color. That would be wonderful to wear on your shoulders, right? I would be thinking of that name all the time I would wear it (maybe even put a label in it).
    Also the color suits you (if I recall those scarce pictures of you well, LOL)

    I like that blue lobster. If I were a knitter (which I’m not), and if I wore shawls (which I don’t), I would use that. It helps that it’s pretty close to my favorite color of blue. 😉


  28. 37

    Kat says

    Blue Lobster. Just because. But if you really want to use the Wollmeise yarn maybe you could buy a skein and have someone else buy a skein of the same color for you.

  29. 38


    I would choose Oleander Hawk Moth. I think that the color variations are amazing and would be beautiful with your red hair! Plus I really would like to see this yarn knitted !

  30. 39


    I’d use one of the blues or the gray because I always wear blue or black jeans. You’re making me want to knit shawls now! But I won’t because I haven’t even finished grafting the toes on my socks and I didn’t even bring knitting with me this trip. I was very unorganized before I left.

  31. 40

    Frieda Z says

    I think the oleander hawk moth would be beautiful for this shawl. There is just enough color variation to make it interesting. I have this pattern but haven’t found a yarn I wanted to use yet. No matter what you use it will be stunning!

  32. 41

    Elizabeth says

    Judy, I just picked the color I thought you should use before reading anyone else’s comments – so I would not be swayed by the majority’s pick. Beyer’s Jewel Scarab. It is bright. It is an “in” color this year. AND it would go so well with your new hair color. Liz

  33. 42

    Gale says

    Oleander Hawk Moth because this pattern seems to call for lots of variation in color and this one has the most. Also, because it is just so pretty! It would be great around the holidays with Christmas outfits and into the spring and also gorgeous on redheads like you and me.

  34. 44

    Andrea says

    Top three picks in order: Blue Lobster, Mr. Nancy, Shelob.

    I’m partial to darks and saturated colors. I can’t wear the two greens, so they are right out for me. I’m sure that whatever you choose will be gorgeous!

  35. 45

    Ellie says

    I’d go with the Beyer’s Jewel Scarab. Love that green and the lacy scarf would show it off.

  36. 47


    I like the Beyer’s Jewel Scarab. I think it will make a lovely shawl and it will go nicely with your new do.


  37. 50

    Penny Holliday says

    My 1st choice is Hawk moth but really either of the greens because I think they would look good with your red hair!!What are you leaning towards now?

  38. 51


    Now how did I miss that pattern….it’s gorgeous! Must put it in my queue!

    I would go with Two Butterflies Went Out at Noon or Oleander Hawk Moth.

  39. 52

    Linda in NE says

    “but I can always cut the grass tomorrow . . right?” And the red tag man be damned!! New projects are more fun than stuff like lawn mowing….or cleaning & freezing strawberries, in my case. Though not a knitter, I’ve started playing with a new quilting project…even though there are still tops waiting to be quilted.

  40. 53

    Gwynette in NW Arkansas says

    Okay, I back tracked your blog. You look great as a red head and the Oleander Hawk Moth is the perfect yarn for you a new shawl!!

  41. 55


    I think the Blue Lobster would look great and the subtle varigation would be pretty in the shawl. But I’d have a hard time leaving the Oleander Hawk Moth alone. Love them both.

  42. 56

    Pam says

    I don’t have a clue and besides you have already decided. You just want to keep us buzy!
    Hope the house hunt goes well!

  43. 58

    Richelle in TX says

    My choice would be the top left – it would match just about anything. I am sure whatever you pick will be nice.

  44. 59

    Roberta says

    I like the Beyer’s Jewel Scarab, it goes with my new lime green car. 😉 Hint, hint!!!!!!!!!!!
    Hugs, Roberta

    Mel Meister says

    I’m knitting socks for my husband in Blue Lobster right now, so that’s what I would pick. I just love the shadings of blue in that yarn. Also, if I was in the Texas heat, I would want something cool and blue to remind me of cooler temperatures.

  46. 61

    Anita says

    Oleander Hawk Moth, the color changes in it seem to be rather prominent and would give movement to the scarf… Loverly!!!

  47. 62

    Ann says

    Oleander Hawk is absolutely beautiful and would be my first choice! The others pale in comparison.

  48. 63

    Darlene S says

    I like Oleander Hawk – it can be worn with more colors and I like he variations too. Besides, you just finished one in blue, right – turquoise? Dar

  49. 64

    Linda B in MI says

    oh what beautiful yarn! and what a decision to make. i pick three the light blue, dark blue and of course the luscious purple one, which is my choice…have fun Judy…wish I could knit as well as you, but have enough on my table right now with the “Hugs” program for the local police departments in the area for kids on the scene in distress…

    Peggy says

    I like the lower right best then lower left. I think the purple looks rich and would make a beautiful shawl. You do beautiful work. Do you know anyone in our area that teaches knitting. I can knit but not to that level.
