Colours for a New Design (maybe)
Tanis Fiber Arts is having a Colourwork Knit/Crochet Along, May 14 - June 17th, and I'm really looking forward to participating! The goal is to knit pretty much anything, using as many colours of TFA yarn as you'd like. I'm having fun picking through my stash and leftover skeins from other projects ... I like the idea of a challenge, so I'm going to try to create a new design. We'll see what happens!
I'm planning on doing something with the four colours above- I love how they look together. The yarns I have in my stash aren't necessarily the same weight, and the one on the far left is a single ply, but I'm interested to see how it plays out in the knitting. I'm not too sure yet exactly what it will become- currently I'm leaning towards some mitts (maybe fingerless?), with a (yet undecided) main colour, and the four above as the focal point. I'm having fun exploring some different ideas, and I'll begin swatching today- cast on will take place officially on Monday, May 14th!
