Color Affection

And here it is!

 

Project Details:

Pattern: Color Affection, by Veera Välimäki
Yarn: Swan's Island Natural Colors Merino Fingering; colors are Garnet, Natural, and Oatmeal
Needles: 3.5 mm circulars (ChiaoGoo)
Started: February 27, 2014
Finished: November 16, 2014
For: Me!

What I Learned: Garter stitch is boring, but it certainly does make a nice squishy fabric. I really love this and will wear it a lot. Those last few thousand stitches made me want to poke my eyes out with sharp knitting needles, but it is very pretty done. I might even be convinced to make another one.

And just because I can:

 

Now I need to finish this:

This is John's Old Friend Peace Fleece sweater. I have it done “except” for the second sleeve, which you see started right there. This is terrific television knitting: nice boring stocking stitch, just like I like it.

And for the record, that is another 1440 meters of yarn out of the stash. I have a little of each of the colors left, perhaps enough for a pair of mitts at some point, but I'm calling it gone.

  1. The colors suit you so well. I need to finish the Falling Hearts Shawl from Jane Austen 2013 before I can begin my Color Affection.

  2. Wow! All that boring garter stitch is worth it when you have your Color Affection on! You…and it…are beautiful! Those are wonderful colors for you; hope you wear those colors often.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. It is stunning! I love garter stitch there is something so pure about it. Congratulations it really is quite lovely.
