I am using all Chromatic Yarns DK. The first skein was called Metagaming Pigeon and the Second is called Eldritch Blast. I used Eldritch blast to make a knitted bralette some time ago.
I think the two sets of colors really look nice up against one another. I have a pseudo rainbow type thing planned that will end again with the Metagaming Pigeon color. For some reason my stash had two of the same color so I thought it would be cool to begin and end with matching yarn.
Spring may start tomorrow but Kansas didn’t get the memo. A fire has been cozy the past several days. I have been feeling the vibes for my Chromatic Yarns ZigZag blanket.
I am just about to finish the first skein and join the next color. I thought I had taken a photo of the fade I had decided on. But I can’t find it anywhere. So I am going to re-lay out the colors and set my new order.
It still takes me a good 35 to 45 minutes to work a full row and return row. So this won’t be done anytime soon but I have the blanket pattern memorized and it’s good easy knitting now. Happy Knitting!!
This past weekend held the KnitGirllls monthly Patreon zoom. My family had just come home from a 4 hour circus that had everyone over loaded from the spectacle of it all. The rest of the family opted for a movie where I opted for wine, cheese and knitting.
I’m making ever so slow progress on my Chromatic Yarns ZigZag Blanket. I think I have added at least five more garter ridges since last I showed you. I had a lovely 2 hours of self care time before diving into dinner and bathtimes.
I traveled to see my GG for her 90th birthday. I pulled out my hibernating Chromatic Yarns ZigZag Blanket. It was great car knitting. The pattern is getting easier but with 300+ stitches it takes me over an hour to work the pattern and return row.
I think I am about halfway through the first skein of this DK yarn. This blanket will be a fade of my hoard of Chromatic Yarns DK stash. I love her speckles and color sense. I just need like 1,000 hours to get all these stitches done!
I’m getting the pattern memorized into my brain. I still have to refer to the patterns for the heel turns but other than that I can cruise right along. I pulled some ribbon from my stash to determine if it was the right medium to hang my items. I think some experimentation is order as I’m not sure I found the right thing.
A lazy day still neglecting to take down all of the Christmas decorations has brought to you a new tiny sweater and two new tiny socks.
This was day four of the 2021 Chromatic Yarns advent calendar. It was a beautiful golden rod color. This D&D inspired color was called Yochlol. I have not a stinking clue what that means as I don’t follow that genre but I can appreciate beauty in all forms.
I treated myself to a little yarn surprise as I really can’t 100% count on my family to sustain my yarn habit. This year my kids picked out beige towels and a bath mat. Perfectly lovely but not exactly crafy.
I snagged a skein of Chromatic yarns in Sturdy Sock called True Sight. Also a cute little puppy hand beaded stitch marker. Hannah also throws in a bag of bird and blend tea. This one was a fruit and custard herbal tea.
Zero clue what I will do with this yarn and so it will go into my Chromatic Yarns every growing stash. I feel like making another variegated shawl in this year. I have lots of blues and greens along this color scheme that would blend well. Maybe after I lose my mitred square blanket mojo?
