Just a reminder that if you haven’t entered the Honeycomb Twist Mitts giveaway, you still have a few hours to do so!
I recently purchased some yarn from a destash. This wasn’t the first time, but this is probably the first time I got it just because I-WANT-IT-but-I-don’t-have-a-plan-yet. I’ve been wanting this color since I first saw it, but then Knit Picks discontinued it and I didn’t get a chance to get it.
I love playing with the blur. I wish that there was an easier way to transition between the layers and smooth it out (in Paint.net), but I think it looks pretty good, though you might be able to tell it’s been photoshopped. The original is below.
It’s obviously less blurry. I didn’t have to edit the colors this time. (Yay! The less editing, the better!) I LOVE this color! I can’t wait to knit/crochet with it. I don’t usually say this about anything but it’s such a delicious color! It’s just the perfect shade of pink. So girly, yet somehow sophisticated. By the way, this is Peppermint Heather in Alpaca Cloud.
I do have a vague plan. I want to make a lightweight sweater so that I use it all up, but I’m not sure if I’ll design it myself or if I’ll buy a pattern instead. I have a hankering to design my own, but then I’m totally loving Laar (Rav link).
See, if I design my own, I might re-do the final result in another yarn/color because this color is discontinued. This is laceweight we’re talking about here! Still that might not be a bad thing because laceweight sweaters would get much more love in Cali than bulky ones. Oh, the possibilities…
