Coreopsis

It is finally done. I can’t wait for the blocking to show it off.

It’s getting a bath and then will be blocked.

I was able to use almost all of the yarn, there were 17 grams left, which MIGHT have been enough for another row, but I hate ripping out a bind off if I’m wrong. The garter rows use more yarn, and the stretchy bind off I use really eats up yarn.

There will be a Project Details post when it’s blocked and dry.

So what’s next? I suppose I should just finish something already on the needles, but where’s the fun in that?

Here’s some new yarn. It’s obviously Hazel Knits, this is her Divine fingering, which is merino, cashmere and silk.

What might this become? I know I said I would never make another Color Affection, but that turns out to be one of the most versatile shawls I have.

And what might have inspired that color choice, which is rather on the gaudy side?

It is football season, after all. I’m off to wind up yarn.

  1. Wow! Your recent meals look so tempting. In fact, they are making me drool a bit. Scallops are one of my vegetarian sorrows! I adore them, along with nearly all other mollusks. And your Coreopsis is amazing. You got it finished so quickly. I am working on a biggish lap blanket now, and I am sure it will take me forever. And it has fat yarn and giant needles (10) to boot!

  2. It is beautiful! I love the color so much (I always wish I could wear yellow), and it even looks soft in the photo.

    I for one, love your Color Affection color idea! Go team! 🙂

  3. Yay! Congrats on the finish.

    I’m sorry I have no suggestions for your lovely trio of fibery splendor, but I’m sure you will come up with something wonderful. Those three colors will make a lovely Color Affection. 🙂

  4. So, I hit send before I edited my entire thought after I realized that I misunderstood something you wrote…
