Back to Fair Isle Sampler Scarf, plus Kollage Kap
Posted by mtmom on January 10, 2010
Here’s where we stand with the Sampler Scarf!
Stripe Set 1: neutral is KnitPicks “Bare” handdyed with (decaf) black tea, then colors are KnitPicks Palette C843 “Garnet Heather”, Jamieson & Smith shade 1283 “Pink Mist”, Reynolds Gleneagles fingering shade 3412 orange, J&S 58 “Dark Green”, J&S 26 lt. green.
Set 2: neutral is J&S shade FC43 (“Fawn”), then 3 shades of KP Palette: C821 “Blue Note Heather”, 6886 “Petal”, C843 “Garnet Heather”, and J&S 73 “Orange”.
Set 3: neutral is J&S 202, then KP “Bare” home-dyed with sumac blossoms (yellow), J&S 93 “red”, J&S 131 “violet”, J&S 21 “navy”, J&S FC11.
Set 4: My current plan is to use J&S FC17 for the next neutral.
Then perhaps on to some non-stripe 2-color patterning.
This is all meanwhile the Kollage “1/2 N 1/2” Kap proceeds toward 18 Jan. deadline. The pattern is mostly written up — I’ll probably change some details of notation — and the model is progressing nicely (faster now that holidays are done and family are back at their respective schools).
The other recreational fiber-medium I’ve been dabbling in is Freeform Crochet.
Either side could end up being the “front”. . . .
Sometimes I have an idea to add onto it, sometimes I don’t.
In her book, Creative Crochet Lace, which I recently borrowed via interlibrary loan, author Myra Wood calls this “Doodle Lace”. (BTW, interlibray loan is a great free service! If your library offers this, take advantage!)
