Here we go . . new yarn arrived yesterday!
Did I just yesterday say that I’m going to finish Hitofude before starting a Loopy Academy project? I think I did say that but I have much greater will power when not touching and feeling new yarn. This is what I’ve already written, but with the yarn picture to go along with it.
#1. A project that includes both a solid/tonal yarn and a multi-colored yarn in the same project.
This one was the most difficult for me to choose. I finally decided on Spectra. I will use Skacel, Zauberball Crazy Socks in color #2204, which is a limey/olive green with some gray. I’ll use Cascade Heritage Silk in Black for the solid. No change . . that’s still the plan.
After seeing the yarn, it’s going to be kinda drab but I guess it’s ok for a granny to have a drab colored project. Not everything should be lime green, purple or orange.
#2. A pattern that includes twisted stitches.
For twisted stitches, I chose Fruit Loop. It’s a free pattern and had been in my library for a while. For the yarn, I chose Cascade’s Heritage Wave in the Tropical color. This plan has probably changed, or is changing.
I really do love the yarn and want to try it but it may be best suited for plain socks. Who knows what I will do?
#3. A pair of socks, knit top down or toe up, whichever you are least familiar with.
I’ve made both toe up and top down socks so I figured I’d just go with whatever pattern floated my boat. I chose Downton – Farewell and the yarn I will use is Cascade Heritage Sock in Denim. No change . . that’s still the plan.
That blue yarn should be pretty for those socks.
Back to #2. These projects are maybe calling my name instead of another pair of socks for the twisted stitches project:
And, as one might guess, I had to order a bit more yarn because some of the original projects may get changed but that yarn will not arrive til next week so it isn’t going on this week’s stash report . . unless it arrives today!
