I had so much fun knitting this Hitchhiker out of a Canon Hand Dyes gradient. I love the colors, and the change happens so subtly in the midst of knitting, that it’s not until you look back a few inches that you realize the color has gotten much lighter/darker/different. I have an Canon Amethyst and an Emerald in my stash that I’m going to knit together into some kind of striped gradient beauty. I’m contemplating: Itineris (with the darker colors perpendicular along the bottom – what do you think?). Or Citron Grand, and I could do the main areas in one color and the gathering in the other? Might look really cool. Or Auri, and I could just switch colors ever other row. So many good options.
And because once I get looking at patterns I get more ideas, wouldn’t this Dromos be beautiful in two colors of KnerdString? I think I’m adding that to my list. In Hotter and Uniform or Sexytime and Uniform? I can’t decide.
We have our July and August randomly drawn winners from Camp and each one gets a $25 Loopy Gift Certificate!
We really enjoyed our Camp time with you all this summer, and look forward to next year again! (Theme picked, plans being made, ideas being generated. Can.Not.Wait.) I have been sharing some past Camp projects on our Loopy Instagram account (#camploopykudos) and we’ll continue to do that, as well as featuring some in blog posts throughout the year. We love sharing your beautiful work.
Have a great rest of your week, and be sure to tune into the blog tomorrow for the beautiful new fabrics going up in this week’s Fabric Update, and on Friday for a recipe for “the most delicious cupcakes ever” as voted upon by the Loopy Elves and baked by Knitting Daughter. Oh, they were so good.
