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.

Spectra Yarn

Spectra Yarn

#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.

Yarn for Socks

#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?

Farewell Downton Socks

Farewell Downton Socks

#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!

    Your Spectra may not be “pop your eyeballs out on a bright sunny day” (a phrase my grandmother used to use when she thought a color was a bit loud – LOL) but I think it’s going to be very stunning in that yarn. I’ve been eyeing the Wave yarn but haven’t decided what I would use it for yet so I’m waiting to Academy projects that get made with it.
