  • Nice palate cleanser! I must check out that pattern. I just completed a palate cleanser myself and think I will continue the practice — something small and fun between the large projects. I have something particularly fun for after I finish my current big knit (she said mysteriously).

  • That lateral braid looks so pretty and different. I found it really futzy to knit and is only worth working in a yarn that’s gonna show it off well

  • I recently finished the beautiful Kaffe Fassett throw from FG 13. My palette cleanser was a stack of potholders!

  • I love the shawl in the projects for that pattern on Ravelry that has the little dots of color between some of the braid areas. And wasn’t there a tutorial on making those braids somewhere here? Maybe J A-C? I remember it seemed much easier than the way I usually do them, but of course I forgot to bookmark it….

    • That’s MY shawl with the “little dots of color in between”! And I loved making that shawl. I agree that the lateral braid is a little “futszy” to knit, but very effective if the yarn has a good stitch definition. I would definitely make the shawl again – a good one skein project. Francoise’ “Little Acts of Kindness” shawl is another one of my go-to’s for one skein.

  • My palatte cleaner is going to be a needlepoint pillow because I’ve damaged a nerve in my thumb from knitting a blanket.

  • Swoon!! You had me at pink amethyst. . . I just love her colors and all of her fiber choices. I was lucky enough to discover Camelia Fiber Co. through her wonderful support of our Dallas Hand Knitting Guild a few years ago. I agree, some yummy socks are also in order!
