The end is in sight for my pink project, so it’s time to ponder what will hop on the needles next. I’m not sure the color is quite accurate… it’s one of those hues that looks so very different in different lighting, but since August is pink month in Project Spectrum, I’m calling this pink. (This is a photo from VERY early into the project. Just hold your horses and a finished object report will follow soon enough.)
September’s color is yellow, and that just isn’t likely to happen here. I don’t have yellow in my stash, and while I’ve worn a bit of it this summer, it’s not my most flattering color and I’m not inclined to knit with it. So, since purple didn’t make the list this time, I think since I’ve finished up with PANK, I’m going to grab some purple, you know… in Sissy’s honor.
This is a merino-silk blend, with just a touch of silk. I’m thinking it wants to be this jumper, and two friends who knit and sew say that if I have it lined, then it should wear well. I’ve never knitted a skirt, so part of me thinks I should try that first… what say you? After my mojo problems earlier this year, part of me thinks I need to just let Mojo have what Mojo wants.
The other option is this great laceweight Waterfalls by Creatively Dyed. There’s 1300 yds. there, so it could be one of the little cardigans I have in my favorites and queue on Ravelry.
I’ll still have my purdy blue project to work on at the firehouse and in the car, and there’s still at least one more work in progress (or hibernating, depending on how you view these things) I want to finish up this year!
Are you knitting any big projects? Have you knitted a skirt or dress?
