I’ve seen this lap robe done in several different weights of yarn and in a huge arrangement of colors, they are all just lovely! I have made a little progress on mine, I have finished ball two of the throw, and today I plan to wind up the third and final color.
That is not acurate at all! I mean – yuck! I have a little better color sense than that! I actually found all the Malabrigo tags and the colors being use are: Amoroso, (Reds) Rhodesian (the golds) and Autumn Forest for the greens. I have purchased another skein of the Autumn Forest, as I am sure I don’t have enough with just one skein. Here it is in progress:
I have also been working on stitch markers and the color yellow was requested. Did I have any yellow? Well, no. So, I bought a few beads and drops and jump rings. Tell me what you honestly think about these, I personally am not too sure.
others like to make jewelry out of them, so just let me know your thoughts on this. And I made this row marker quite a while ago, but while I am asking opinons, tell me your thoughts on this too!!Knit Picks wooden needles arrived too, I am hoping to try them out with the Icelandic Lace Shawl. I ordered some laceweight mohair from Japan, and it took so long to get here, (pictures of that next week) that I ordered the yarn pack from Sarah at Sarah’s Yarn’s (only $25 including postage, how can I refuse?) Even if I do have a mountain of fingering weight yarn:
I guess there are a few worsted weights in there too. Our local knitting group will be working on EZ’s Totem Jacket as a group this Fall and Winter, and those patterns came in as well. So, we should all be learning some new things very soon!
