I’m crossing my fingers for spring, even in the midst of predictions for freezing rain in the next few days. To prod spring along, and as a nice respite from all the blue-grey of Pensacola. I am also in the mood to cast on all of the things!
Here’s my progress on Whispers. I love how quickly fingering weight goes on size 6 (4mm) needles. I’m on the fourth color of my gradient kit from Black Trillium. Getting to each new color is really motivating me to go faster and faster. It makes me really happy.
I’d also been thinking about casing on a BlueSand Cardigan since it’s release date, but it was another thing I wouldn’t let myself do with the Pensacola deadline. The pattern calls for DK weight yarn, but I have 1600 yards of Blue Moon Socks that Rock in Blue Moonstone that have been crying out to become something for awhile. I did a gauge swatch and I’m going up a sweater size to get a pretty similar result to the 34″. The lighter blue will be the main color, with the teal Squishy Anzula as the top contrast stripe and the yellow Vice Carnal Corpses Christi as the other contrasting yarn. It seems a little silly to begin such a large cardigan this time of year, but realistically as much as I wish for spring, I’ll probably have many opportunities to wear it. I’m happy for the super cheery colors.
This is only the tip of the iceberg, color-wise. I have some Blue Moon Fiber Arts Gaea Sport coming for the New Girl KAL and some intensely colorful and fun sock yarn that I’ll post about when I get a bit further into the stripes. I’m committing to a spring full of COLOR!
