It has arrived!!!

The Kauni shipped as fast as it possibly could, I am very impressed. I am now officially getting nervous about this upcoming project. I have chosen something that will be a real stretch for me. A challenge. Colorwork, I am not good at it. Takes mounds of concentration. Steaking?!?! What am I thinking? But seriously, looking at this yarn, how could I resist?

I am going to take this water garden fair isle and use the kauni to make it. It will change the look completely, but I think it will work. The idea is that instead of using 5 different colors, I will just use 2 different strands of Kauni, letting the long repeats of the yarn work the various colors for me. To accomplish that, I had to do this:

One ball has the rainbow colors repeating in the correct sequence, the other has the colors repeating backwards.

This will be exciting!

  1. You can SO DO THIS!!! And it is going to be so fantastic!! I can’t wait for you to start! So um…have ya started yet? šŸ˜›

  2. I got to thinking, this is the BEST spring project. I mean, it is BRIGHT!!

    I swatched a bit. Darn loose gauge! I have to go down another needle size. Meaning a total of 2, as usual. One would think I would just start with that since I know I knit loose!

    I am leaving it alone for the rest of the evening at least. Maybe I’ll play around in the morning if I wake up early.
