Days are getting darker and it seems like an eternity until spring is here again. I love bright warm days - so I could easily move to a warmer place from now until May. But there is this problem with the wool. When should I use it? And what should I knit? It sure is a good thing that I avoid those huge problems....
Anyway, I found the brightest colors of autumn some large needles and went for another mindless knit. Orange and red are wonderful colors together.
I use Finull and Plum, my absolute favorite yarns. Those two together is like hot chocolate and freshly baked croissants.
|From red to something dusty colored...|
And I must add: Rauma has changed the color on their red Plum mohair yarn.
And shame on them for making it dusty red - it is nearly not red anymore.
The bright red I use is from a sale I came over. That bright red is just wonderful but nowhere to be found anymore.
If anyone know of a bright red kid mohair yarn - please tell me about it.
What I do not understand is that they have all those bright colors in Finull and have a lot of patterns with the combination of the two yarns - but no red color in Plum. Well well, no problems are too small to be made bigger... LOL!!
But, I think my shawl is going to be lovely. Still knitting on some gifts and all I need is those garter shawls for relaxing in between. While I watch the leaves fall from the tress in all those wonderful colors.
