|Yesterday when I was with dear Donna, we talked about our affinity for blue. Yeah, most of my knits are in the pink/purple color family, but I took a look at my stash and saw the lovely blue yarns that I have collected in reserve for some great projects in the future…|
…and right now, I am finishing up Kris’s blue pullover. This sleeve has another 9 inches left until I am ready to block and seam it. I will be so happy to have this one out of my stash–it has been lingering way too long.
|The Bernat Denim Style is a good yarn. I saw someone sub it for Debbie Bliss Cotton Denim Aran and it was a close match and much cheaper as a whole.Â I know that this pullover is going to be too big for Kris. I am hoping that it will shrink a little in the wash and be a better fit. I should have made the smaller size… can’t wait to be done with this one.|
… and when you dig a little deeper into the knitting bag…
|… you find my Cotton Ease pullover in Candy Blue. This will probably be one of the brightest things in my closet when I finish it, but gosh, I love this yarn. I just discovered it too, and now they are discontinuing it. Just my luck. I do plan another trip to JoAnn to stock up on some more.|
|These blue buttons were another gift from my dad after his South American trip. They are made with an amazing cobalt blue base and a mother of pearl face. I have to find the perfect cardigan to use these on–ideas? They are large buttons, so maybe only a one or two button cardi would be best, and the leftovers could be used on another project or in some jewelry…|
Today was a wonderful day outside… see the blue sky!
