FO: Triada (variations on a color theme)
Posted by Amber on January 28, 2007
Pattern: Triada, Summer 2005 Interweave Knits
Yarn: Fiesta La Boheme (1 strand 100% rayon, 1 strand kid mohair/wool/nylon)
Color: Abalone (pink and purple)
Mods: Cast on 50, not 30, used a size 15 needle, not a 17
Notes: The first few rounds were a bit tricky (knitting/purling to stich below for fisherman’s rib pattern, plus using such absurdly large needles). But once I got the hang of it, it was really fun, and really, really fast. I got the yarn on Friday and started working on it Saturday afternoon (after I seamed and blocked a sweater!) And it’s so shiny! The perfect pick me up for cold rainy winter days.
Bat cave, how I loathe your lack of light.
I’ll try and attack someone at work tomorrow to take a picture in natural light. If there is any natural light tomorrow
I knew I wasn’t going to wear it as a shoulder wrap/poncho, which is part of the reason I cast on 50 stitches instead of 30 – I wanted it to have a larger circumfrance, so I could double it around my neck, like in this photo. So sparkly.
