I’ve been having lots of fun this year knitting as well as working on quilts. The store Eat Sleep Knit hosts quarterly knit alongs. The next quarter challenge which starts tomorrow is to knit a Fade project. I have a couple I want to do. One is a sweater by Joji Locatelli called Spector. And the other is a shawl by Ambah O’Brien called Jacinta. I have one of the hanks of yarn for the Jacinta shawl wound already. I still have to do up the other 2, but I can at least get started on it tomorrow using the yarns shown in this picture. As far as the Spector Sweater, it will be from these colours starting with the lightest at the top of the sweater and progressing to the darkest at the bottom. These fade projects are rather addicting, I think. I have 3 months together them both done.
Of course by then it will be mid summer and way too warm to actually use them, but that is totally beside the point. As in quilting, the fun and challenge are in the making not the using.
I’m linking up to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching.
I like the progress on Connections, but I'm really excited to see your knitting take shape! LOVE the Spector sweater and yarns! And just think - you'll be ready for fall weather when it arrives! (or maybe even some summer camping weather...)ReplyDelete
Your connections is looking really cool.ReplyDelete
Your Connections quilt is looking fabulous. So much lovely English piecing to be seen there. I love how all those pretty scraps dance around the grey hexagons. Love the yarn too, it all looks so soft.ReplyDelete
