OK, hopefully that got your attention!
The project I'm referring to is Clapotis (remember when everyone was knitting one?
). Well I resisted for a long time, but I saw a different shawl project the Yarn Harlot made
with some Blue Moon Fiber Arts yarn (Twisted is the yarn name, colorway Puck's Mischief)
and I thought the yarn was just the most beautiful color I'd ever seen.
In real life, I don't like the color as much as I thought I would (too much pink and green and not enough blue and purple), and I don't know if I would ever use this if I finish it (I'm very close). I for sure don't know anyone else (ie a friend I could gift it to) who would wear something so colorful.
Here are some pics of the yarn and the project... The 3rd pic is what I WANT the yarn to look like; but the first 2 are more color-accurate. What do you guys think? Hideous?
Any suggestions of what to do with it if I decide to frog? I could not find a project that I really felt suited this yarn. It was expensive, and I doubt anyone would want to buy it off me now that it will have been knit up and frogged once.
I have 2 hanks of it (total of 1120 yards; it's Aran weight, 100% merino).
PS sorry for the small photos but I think KH has gotten more restrictive in photo size! Here is my Flickr page
if you want to see them larger.
