You remember these lovelies that arrived in the post a little over a month ago now? They’re the first installment of the Famous Five Sock Club from Fine Fish Yarns.
Pretty aren’t they, but what do you do with 5 mini skeins of multicoloured yarn, other than knit/crochet blanket squares or make scrappy socks?
Out came the umberella swift and the yarn winder and I caked them up, in the hope of some inspiration.
Naturally, the blues, sung to me and I’m taken with the red too, but I’m really not a peach girl. There’s a photo my best friend adores of her and her husband and in it she’s wearing a peach dress – she looks lovely. So I maintain that only her 80’s self and Whitney Houston (also in the 80’s), are my only exceptions to peach.
Let’s get one thing straight though…..
If it was a choice between peach or purple, well then it would be a resounding and very loud PEACH, but that’s a whole other story.
Anyway, I digress.
I’ve cast on the If I Was Your Girlfriend Shawlette and am knitting two row stripes of each colour, so it’s a ten row repeat.
As you can see from the photo, the colour repeats in each shade are quite short and it’s resulting in a very jumbled effect, there’s no rhythm to it at all (man) 8|. I’m not completely convinced I even like it, although it does have a certain something.
Should I continue knitting, or frog it, what do you think?
Do you have any other ideas for mini’s? One of my good friends Lee Ann, has made a gorgeous Tubularity with her Fine Fish Mini’s.
First world problems hey?
