Squishiness

I may have caught the actual color of the yarn I’m using for One & Done. Well, the bright ones anyway. The pink and orange are bright and beautiful. The mid color is a blue teal shade. The dark is everything from dark teal to navy to black. It really is a unique skein. I’m not sure the name of the colorway, feel the beet, really sums it up.

The texture of this project is an illusion because stitches will be dropped once I reach the end of this section. I’ve only done one other project that required dropping stitches and I have not the fondest memory of it. Knitters worry about dropping stitches when they’re knitting because they’re sure those stitches will just run right down the project. It has been my experience that intentionally dropped stitches tend to be sticky and require much encouragement to run all the way down. Either way I’m looking forward to getting to that point. For right now I’m enjoying how squishy the fabric feels.

What are you enjoying about your projects right now? Are you enjoying the color or feeling? Maybe you’re enjoying the idea of gifting your project and making someone feel your love for them.

    I’m enjoying the color of my Barley Light hat. And the feeling of Franca. Your one and done color is so rich and deep.

    Yes, I’ve done one project with dropped stitches and didn’t care for it, so I’ve avoided them since then. Look forward to seeing how they turn out with this!

  3. I’ve done one project with dropped stitches and I agree – they can be a bit fiddly to do what you want them to! Right now I’m loving the squish factor and back and forth rhythm of my brioche sweater.

  4. I’m enjoying the softness of alpaca yarn as well as its pale apricot color. Normally I don’t knit with such light colors, so it’s a nice change of pace.

  7. I have trouble with the concept of knitting stitches – and then undoing what you’ve done! Something for others to enjoy, I guess. I finished a pair of fingerless mitts today, to go with a hat requested by a friend. Not my colors, but all from stash, so working the collection of yarns in the right direction! I’ll post when I get a photo of hat with mitts.

  8. Love the color and look of your One and Done! I’m working on some slippers for my brother, which is a pattern I’ve done a bunch of times. Next up are slippers for my SIL. They just moved from Florida to Wisconsin, so looking forward to helping them keep warm in their new home 🙂

  11. That really is a beautiful colourway.
    I’m enjoying seeing some real progress on a Flax jumper (yay for aran weight yarn!), and the colours in my newest Beachcombing blanket.

    I have at least seven WIP’s; I sure went wild this year. Two are long-term, fine with me. The two sock ones I kind of wish I’d be done with. My shawl I’m cool with. My nephew’s cardigan…sigh…so many parts to finish yet.
