I’ll be brief, because I’m still suffering the effects of Post-Shakerag-Knitting-Getaway Malaise. I’ll get over it, at some point, maybe, but right now, I’m feeling a certain slumpiness about daily life after a great time with a bunch of knitters. I hope everybody who’s home from the Getaway is resting comfortably and taking liquids! Pix to come soon.
It was hard to knit and visit at the same time, but I managed to get a good start on this broken-rib brioche.
It has a different texture on the back.
This yarn is our MDK-exclusive Honeycomb Scarf Bundle, in the Summer colorway.
I picked this one to make at the Knitting Getaway because its zingy colors seemed right for the moment. A knitting souvenir.
The other three colorways are likewise seasonal.
I was curious to see what would happen when that giant ball of Freia in Orange Crush met up with the Minikins of constantly shifting colors.
Basically: the Minikins are winning. The orange is going to shift a bit as this thing comes together, but it will be a sort of haze—not an overwhelming orange event.
This simple knitting is showing me how sometimes a small dose of something can have a big impact. And how a big dose of something can dissipate.
In other words, I am having a swell time and need to stop typing right now so I can get back to it.
And While We’re At It . . .
Please take a moment to see what Cristina is up to with her Honeycomb Scarf. She’s going with two Freia Shawl Balls rather than the Honeycomb Scarf Bundle.
You’re seeing Lichen and Ember here, a glorious mashup of subtle color.
This is what makes the Honeycomb Scarf such a fine project: it works with whatever color story you want to create.
