Buttons are on


tag is in


and I have entered a completed date on my Ravelry projects page.

So I guess it’s official.

All that is left is to send it off.
It might be hard to say goodbye after all this time.

But I am happy.
Happy that it turned out so swell.
And happy that I am now freed up to pursue other new and exciting projects!

I have to say, that since last weekends workshop, I’ve really been inspired to work with color.

I had quite a bit of yarn left over from the class

and wanted to practice my two-handed colorwork technique, but decided that I couldn’t handle being tied to a chart.
So I cast on for a cowl to use up my rainbow of leftovers


I love doing this sort of thing.
No counting.
No checking.
Just pick a color and knit.


and it’s going to be so cozy!

    That sweater turned out great. Love the buttons. Perfect!
    What you did with the left over yarn is beautiful. Is that two color technique easy to do? I would love to try it.

      thanks farmlady- the two color technique I was working on is holding one working yarn in each hand. so, throwing (english style) with one color, and picking (kind of) with the other. think I’m finally getting a feel for it. I always used to just drop one color and pick up the other. not especially efficient- and a lot more prone to twisting the yarns.

    The sweater is gorgeous. That cowl, WOW. Love the effect. It is fantastic.

      thanks Christine. I really like the cowl too. and it was a great way to practice with the colorwork- no shaping to worry about, not a big commitment like a sweater project. 🙂

    I adore the colors you dyed! And the way you knitted them up really showcases them nicely. Cool!

      thanks- I love the colors too. in the workshop we dyed using onion skins, cochineal and logwood- on white, brown and gray fleece. amazing the color effects you can get when you start blending them on hand cards. think I’m going to have to get my earth hues kit out again!

      thanks crazysheeplady. I love the cowl more than I expected to. So neat when that happens! And nice to have a wearable memento of my fair isle workshop 🙂
