Happy Wednesday! If you remember several days ago I shared with you my inspiration for a new machine knitting project that I had in mind – a fun and colorful cotton sweater inspired by the colors of the beautiful wall found in the downtown. The good thing is that I am still inspired by it and can’t wait to get to the project. The weird thing is that the aquamarine yarn that I bought together with the deep dark green one is gone!! I have no idea how it is possible – I looked everywhere (and when I say everywhere, I mean it – even the refrigerator, well, just in case 🙂 ). The yarn has mysteriously disappeared! After days of turning my home upside down, I finally gave up and decided it was not meant to be, until I found this very very old crochet WIP.
As far as I remember it was supposed to be a crochet dress, but I overshaped it or something and had to frog it, but what attracted me to it this time is the color of yarn – a deep royal blue that looks so beautiful next to the green!
It won’t make a bright, fun and colorful sweater that I initially planned, but I love this subtle and slightly gloomy color combo even more! The shades are so deep and noble, I think they will create a very interesting fabric. After rummaging through my leftovers I found some extra blue skeins – so, this one is definitely meant to be!
I am still not sure which way to go and how to combine the colors – I tried classic color blocking, stripes, tried mixing two yarns together… The way I see it in my mind is a fabric that looks like weaving, where there is no visible contrast between color changes, where the colors are blurred together.
The green yarn, which is a combed cotton, had such a beautiful slight sheen and creates beautiful contrast with matte deep blue…
I am really excited about this small project and happy to be working on my machine again – it’s my first project since Sand Sweater that I finished back in June!
I hope you are having a wonderful week and enjoying your projects!
See you at Yarn Along.
