Beautiful Knitting

Where Mt.Mom knits, crochets, designs, and seeks Beauty as food for the soul.

Colors, colors

My cohorts at knitting night took all the Apple Pie yarn off my hands last night.  One gal said it was the best thing to happen to her all week, so for that I’m glad.  But I still have not settled on what to do next towards knitting the “perfect” pair of knee socks/kilt hose.  I have at least 2 yarns currently under consideration, Trekking XXL (2 balls) for tall, colorful hose, and Koigu for testing out different heel/toe constructions on a shorter sock — not sure which to do/start first.  2 choices of sock yarn

Meanwhile, I’m about ready to launch into a new band on my Fair Isle sampler scarf!  Turning from Sara Don to Meg Swansen’s “Campers”, I’ve selected a pattern from Sweaters from Camp.  [NB:  publisher plans to let this book go out of print when current copies are gone.]  Here are the specified colors of Jamieson & Smith jumper-weight Shetland yarn used in the “Autumn Colors” FI cardigan, grouped by motif:  color set 1 

color set 2  color set 3, peeries

A last note about colors and color combinations.  Modest Purls asks your favorites in her blog contest — prize is a $25 gift certificate to The Loopy Ewe.  Go over and check it out!
