I May Have Fibbed A Little…

For those of you who were looking forward to making a cozy for your own slinky… I’m afraid you’ll have to use an orphaned sock 😉

Green Blob / Blue Blob / Matinée, is off the needles and has morphed into a cowl.

Matinée is a necklace that is 56-58 (22-23 inches) long, usually single strand. “Semi-Precious” is so named because of the gorgeous colours in the YvieKnits Sock; tiger eye, turquoise and raspberyl. The bands are worked in Sundara ASM. The construction is unique: tubular, dimensional and at very different tension than expected, giving the look of gems on a strand 🙂 I’m super stoked to get started on what I’m calling the “Peridot” version, the test knit for the final design and some finishing variations. This will be another stashbuster, like “Semi-Precious”, in two Sundara bases.

The sand-coloured cowl is “Papyrus Columns”. I wasn’t crazy about the original photos, they didn’t show the cabled motifs very well. I like the “do-overs” much better.

With that, I’m off to twist up some stash 😉

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Stashbusting And Prototypes

Shopped the stash to expand on my green blob / blue blob idea and came up with Sundara Aran Silky Merino and YvieKnits Yarns sock. They’ve been playing happily together and I have a lovely slinky cozy to show for my efforts 🙂

Slinky Cozy!

Slinky Cozy!

This prototype I’ll test knit in some Mrs. Crosby yarn that I broke down and purchased – had to see what the fuss was about – and hopefully, will debut as a pattern.
