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?

I think it will work out quite nice as your shawl gets larger 🌸
Thanks for saying so foxxy305 I think I’m worried as it’s a little out of my comfort zone 💙
I agree with foxxy305, and also recommend the Hitchhiker shawl or anything with a lot of garter. The hitchhiker always manages to shake up variegateds well. But I think your shawl will be lovely as it gets larger. I’ve been known to frog after completing a shawl, but there will always be someone who will love it even if you don’t. 🙂
I’m still in two minds even now Orange Smoothie and I’ve knitted quite a bit more. My gut instinct was to stripe the colours with a semi solid, maybe navy. What do you think?
I think that’s a good option as well!
One more thing. I think it’ll look good with jeans and a t-shirt!
Agree completely 💙
