The big brown sweater is continuing apace. I’m finally onto the last sleeve.
However, being close to done with this project is making me look forward to the next – turns out, I can’t stay away from tiny gauge projects for long. I’m going to be doing a bunch of traveling over the month of May, and that means I need something portable.
I have my heart set on Oslo (the buttons! The bajillion miles of stockinette in the round!), but I wanted to modify it a little bit to use yarn I already had.
I’ve swatched the first colourwork repeat, using dark brown Malabrigo as the main colour and the leftovers from my Paulie sweater for the colourwork sections (modified to only use two colours).
I spent a few days sort of ambivalent about the colour combination. I wasn’t sure if the navy stood out enough, or if I wanted to frog and redo it with purple and grey.
But the more I stare at this picture (and the scarf), the more I feel like the colours I chose are probably the right ones for me.
