Here’s how the cardigan looked yesterday.
I loved the first two repeats after the ribbing but had a difficult time with the orange and blue. It’s not so bad in the photo but in real life looks odd. Normally orange and blue look good together but this blue is too soft when next to this shocking orange.
Instead of taking a break and stepping away from it, I ripped it all out and started all over again; this time with purple and orange. Next time I’ll give myself a break before making such a drastic decision.
Two color ribbing is getting quite easy now that I’ve had plenty of practice. The color for the knit stitch is held in my left hand and the one for the purl stitch in my right. This is quite comfortable for me since I naturally hold yarn in my right hand when working with one color.
This week I sent in my registration for a year long intensive course with Jean Wong through Madrona Fiber Arts. I’m crossing my fingers hoping there will be enough interest or if there’s lots of interest, that I’ll get chosen to attend. We’ll be making 8 different types of garments during the year. The last one will be our own design. Yikes! Hope I can do that.
Look at this jacket (463) I found on the Bergere de France website. Interesting use of cables but I’m not sure if I like the trim.
I’m hoping that the anne-evilla kit comes this week. If it does I might have to put the cardigan aside and start that one.
