So, I've been calling this one Ocean Stripes.
The colors remind me of swimming in the warm waters of the Gulf.
It's a work in progress. I hope it to be shawl depth but we'll see how the yarn holds out. I should have plenty.
|14 shades of Palette|
The shawl is super simple to knit but not very portable. It's all garter stitch with built-in fringe. The fringe may get cut off to make way for a knitted border on each end. We'll see how it goes.
As for the stripes, I ordered 14 colors of Palette from Knit Picks. I simply used their paper catalog & went down the list of greens. As for the knitting, I have two buckets and I take a skein out of one bucket, knit a row, cut the yarn & toss it into bucket #2. When Bucket #1 is empty, I 'stir' the yarns around in bucket #2 and reverse the process. I try very, very hard to blindly grab a skein each time & to not choose a favorite color or one I think would look good next to the previous. The idea is for the stripes to be completely random.
|Frixion Erasable Highlighters|
Meanwhile, my Frixion erasable highlighters finally arrived. It took almost two months for the highlighters to arrive from Japan. Waiting for them has been killing me! About three weeks after ordering them, I discovered that Michaels had started selling them. I was a good girl though and waited, somewhat patiently, for my overseas order. I'm glad I waited. The colors are gorgeous! Just look at that pastel aqua. My erasable highlighters coordinate with my knitting! And they actually erase!! How cool is that?
