I decided [since I had started my Find your Fade with a different color than I had planned] I may as well knit another shawl. The color order I had chosen can be found here. The other shawl will be the same colors just in a different order. This will be interesting. I will have an excellent example of how colors can blend as well as a second shawl that can be a gift.
- Tosh Merino Light, Plaid Blanket
- Black Elephant, Acheron
- Malabrigo Mechita, 5 Aniversario
- Black Elephant, Sunflowers
- Dragonfly Fibers Pixie, Middle Earth
- Tosh Merino Light, Coquette Deux 341
- Malabrigo Mechita, 866 Arco Iris
I think I need to purchase only two, maybe three, additional skeins to do this. Which means I will use most of my yarn up. Always a win. I’m pretty sure I will need a second skein of Dragonfly’s Middle Earth and Madeline Tosh merino light in Coquette Deux. Everything else should be ok. Maybe. I’m going to concentrate on completing one and then I will weigh the leftovers and math to see where I’m at.
I’ve decided to put my traveling socks on hold. I’m using Wolmeise. I am making Hermione’s Everyday Socks by Erica Lueder. The heel is Susan B Anderson’s Smooth Operator Heel, so that my swirl will be maintained throughout the socks. I want to make the heels and toes with a blackish Wollmeise skein I have. Unfortunately that skein is in storage. Hence the on hold. I really like the way the yarn is knitting up and I totally can picture the black heels and toes as icing on the cake.
We have the moving truck delivering all of our stuff in less than a week. I doubt I’ll have much time to knit but I will be able to find that black skein of yarn!
