i haven't been spinning
because i cannot put down my knitting. marina gave me the push to sub vy colors for queen anne's lace from stillwater.
i love the colors!
first i swatched with all the colors, and half a repeat. hmm, i wasn't sure.
so then i swatched a checkerboard taking out 2 of the colors. they blended more seamlessly, but seamless was blah.
so back in the 2 colors went.
this is my project for the stranded - the colorwork challenge.
i am using the set in sleeve shaping from marina, and so far the sizing is great. i tinkered with how long to make the body, so that the shoulders will meet at the end of a repeat. then i'll have to figure out where to start the top of the sleeves, so the cuff ends at the end of a pattern.
math, blech, that's my daughter's thing. she's a math wiz.
