Last week I went to my LYS to buy some Jamieson’s Of Shetland Spindrift yarn , for I have been ruminating a sort of tribute design and I want this one to be made with exceptional palette of natural shades of yarn. I came home with colors Shetland Black, Shaela, Mooskit, and Easit.
While we were out walking yesterday, from one of these massive sad piles (there are many, these are only two) I took one of the gnarled twisted historic vines destined to be burned, and Emma helped me carry it home, gladly, for her it was just a big stick to play with!
I have got it ready to knit up. . .
and now I have cast on !
It will have checked ‘dicing’ in the band and through the colorwork motifs . . .
So folks, in the days ahead, I am letting needles fly, and my world has turned into shades of natural wools, grey-black to grey-white, and I won’t emerge from my Autumnal Hermitage until it is complete, mark my word ! ((The pink strand will not be one of it’s attributes, that is merely part of the provisional cast-on.)) I’ll be seeing you on the flip-side.
