Wow, has it really been over two months since I last finished a project? Despite knitting nearly every day!?! But no matter. I am just so happy to be wearing my new Vasa and showing it off to you today.
Knitting this was loads of fun. I set out with the goal of using up some knit picks palette that have been in the stash for a good long while. Very proud of myself for showing some restraint and choosing just five different colors (2 shades of blue and brown plus a dark midnight heather to tie everything together). I also wanted to experiment a little bit with a simple color work pattern. The wavy stripes seemed appropriate and were easy & fun to knit.
Very happy with this one but my plans to use up stash kind of backfired when I ran out of the midnight heather. There was just no way I could go onto the knit picks website and order a single ball of yarn. So now I have quite a few more colors of palette in the stash. And more opportunities to play with color. Not such a bad thing, right?
