It's been another busy and successful week in Waterloo. While in Waterloo, I've been working on a shawl, Icarus, and I'm just getting to the exciting part of the lace, but I'm home again and having a riot. A color riot.
I left my Folklore yoke in London because I'm playing with all the colors in my crayon box. It's slow going but so much fun! On Saturday I decided it was time to do a sanity check, since I'm not working to gauge and I'm sizing the pattern up. So half the stitches went onto a spare circular and I laid it down over the yoke of my last successful knit:
It's lookin' good! I'm happy with the neck line too. I found that the green and purple yoke sweater rides a bit high on my neck and can get irritating.
These two projects have me interested and are exciting, but there's more excitement coming. I received notice of a sale this week that was irresistible and I bought enough yarn to make Lizard Ridge. I tried to make this blanket once before without success. I'm feeling much more confident in my color skills this time. I've learned not to play it safe!
