Every time someone shows something on Ravelry that is amazing (and to me . . almost anything knitted is amazing!), I want to make it. Nevermind there are about 1,275 projects that I’ve already ordered yarn to make but the newest most amazing thing gets my attention. By the time I finish what I’m working on, something else is new and amazing. You know — the same thing happens to you with quilting and knitting, right?
This morning someone posted a finished shawl . . this one . . Nordnordwest. I loved it! I began looking at the other finished shawls. I loved the two color versions. I love the scrappy ones. I love the one color versions.
After looking at the finished shawls, I decided I wanted to make mine using fingering weight instead of lace weight yarn. I went stash diving and came up with these options:
I hesitated to even show this one because the purple is so far off from the real color. It’s really just a bit deeper purple than the lavender in the yarn.
I like orange and I think this would be pretty. I might end up switching out the orange for a redder orange. Now that I see the photo, I’m thinking the yellow and the orange might blend when they’re next to each other and I think the red might be a better choice.
Kinda bright but I like it.
Then I started thinking maybe I should do the first one using one yarn and I can weigh each section and make notes and then I can better plan if I want to make a controlled scrappy version or a 2 or 3 color version.
The one color version that I loved from the projects used Wollmeise Roku regenbogen. I have that! I have two skeins of that!
I’ve been saving it for something special. I believe I’ve found my special project!!
