To distract you all from practically non-existent blogging (after 8 hours of work today I logged a couple at the library…so tired), a discussion question.
Elann is offering Rowan Pure Wool DK on Monday (don’t even think about scooping it from under me!) and I think it would be perfect for Teva Durham’s Short-row Fair Isle sweater. Yes.
I couldn’t find a really good photo of it, but there’s one on whisperingpine.
The question is, of course…what colours? It does look rather nice in the colours it’s shown in, but I’m not personally so hot on purple (it’s a deep purple plus a lavender for the light colour). Choices for the main light and dark colours (used in the actual fair isle bands):
blues (but there isn’t a really good light blue)
And then there’s the contrast colour, the one that’s a camel in the photo – the bands that swirl up the body. I’m really not sure what to do for that, I suppose it depends on the main colours!
Any ideas would be much appreciated.
P.S. Did you remember to set your clocks forward?
P.P.S. Adding 125 calories of pure fat (Udo’s oil, on the advice of my naturopath) to my normal diet, supplemented by a little more sugar than usual = weight gain. Ugh.
