Knitting makes me happy, computers keep me humble.

My New Winter Hat :-)


The contest was a great opportunity to try out my idea for doing faux fair isle using one solid color and a variegated color. I used charcoal Cashmerino for the solid (stranded with OzYarn charcoal Alpaca to keep continuity of gauge) and Lorna's Laces Sockknitter's Rainbow (with Red Heart Mexicali.)

The top section has the charcoal as the background and the bottom section has the variegated rainbow as the background. I think the second is more effective. It would have been better to use a variegated yarn that had all of its colors lighter than the background color - the purple and the green got lost in the charcoal.
