Today I tripped over a jewel forgotten since the wildfire! Looking in my design files I discovered a partially written pattern, along with a few photos of the one I knit. Pattern was almost finished except for a few details which needed doing, and so I spent most of yesterday finishing the pattern.
It is an intensely colorful folksy chullo, and which I posted about way back here. It one of my best colorwork pieces in my opinion, inspired by South American motifs, in four shades of blue, from very dark to very light, complete with tassels & knitted braid! Intensely blue I tell you! But it could be any other color as well, in four shades. I think I’ll knit up another!
The design is completely my own colorwork motifs, and had originally some very poignant meaning, and a series all in queue as I recall, but of which now I can not remember (since the disruption of the wildfire), only some discussions with a long time writing friend of mine from Argentina who lectures on varied subjects of philosophy from time to time at a Seminary in a small town called Azul.
I therefore had named it ” Azul Chullo ” .
The actual knitted chullo has long disappeared into my brother’s possession, but as I had detailed photos I was able to assemble the pattern. Done & dusted! (There is-was a vest pattern in the works too, but that is another matter). For now, there is Azul Chullo. And as it is presently the middle of winter in Argentina, I will not make haste…
pattern is LIVE on Ravelry ~~~ HERE !

Edit in: After discussing with Alejandro just now about a better name for this design, and as our topics of discussion often have reference to the Andes Mountains, and as I personally echo the sentiment of such a new title, this chullo will now be named Montañas Azules, meaning “Blue Mountains”, as are the Andes of Argentina!
