When I said I'd be back soon, I really didn't mean THIS soon, but I just listed these on my Raverly page, so guess I am on a roll.
Knitty issue. They are knit out of FatCat polwarth, a colorway offered in her club last summer. The background is Cascade Heritage sock yarn. It's one of my favorites for colorwork.
My original inclination was to use off-white as the background color. But I changed my mind after a discussion that took place last Saturday during my knit group. Camel or Black/Navy got the most votes, and my off-white was decided to be too stark of a paring. Upon completion, I thought perhaps black would have been much better - but now that I look at the photos, I realize there is quite a bit of dark coloration that would have been lost in a black background. Sigh - I guess nothing is perfect. I'll be happy with these I guess.
The pattern was well written, and fun to knit. I always enjoy changes in colors - keeps you mesmerized and constantly in that "just one more row" mode. Not a bad state of mind for a knitter.......
