Last week, I showed you my most recent Mitered Cross. As I mentioned, this is a long-term project for me – one I just pick up from time-to-time between other projects. But each time I finish a cross, I’m tempted to just keep working on this blanket until I’m done. It’s going to be SO squishy and cuddly. I’m really, really happy with how it’s turning out.
The background color is my handspun Hello Yarn Tarhee “Parritch”; the contrast color is a combo spin I did (my first ever), a mash-up of Hello Yarn Rambouillet in “Pallid” and FLUFF Rambouillet in “Ripe Eggplant.” The thing is, I’ve realized that I am probably not going to have enough of the contrast yarn to make the whole blanket. I knew from the beginning that it would be iffy, but I decided to risk it, knowing it would not likely be possible to spin this one-of-a-kind yarn again. I’m betting I can spin up something else that will work, when the time comes.
Speaking of spinning up additional yarn, that’s something else I need to do yet again, for a little project I started last spring. At the time, I spun up four ounces of Hello Yarn Panda in “Villain,” knit it all up, and decided I wanted to make the project longer. So I got some more Villain in destash and spun up a little more last week.
I should’ve made a bit more, though, because the project still isn’t quite where I want it to be.
I absolutely adore this yarn and these colors. Spinning more of it up certainly isn’t a hardship!
That’s some of what I’ve been up to. How about you?
