This is the current state of my NightShift shawl. I love knitting this thing – the pattern is pretty simple and the ability to play with color is great.
And yet. I haven’t been working on it much at all for the last two weeks. I think it’s because, even though I love to work on it, the look I’m creating . . . I don’t have much love for that.
For one, I think I used too much of that mustard color all together.
For two, I don’t think the colors I’m using have enough contrast.
So. How do I fix it? Do I rip back to the mustard section and use less of it there and work that yellow in more frequently but in shorter sections? Do I order more Malabrigo Rios from WEBS and get colors that will provide more contrast? And if I do that what colors do I choose?
Help a knitter out, friends, because I’m floundering with this one.
On the reading front, thank goodness, I’m not floundering at all. I finished I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter yesterday and I really enjoyed it. I’m looking forward to our Read With Us discussion next month, Kym and Bonny have both shared details of what our process will be. I also recently finished The Stationery Shop and I enjoyed that one, too. And, I finally printed out my Stay At Home Bingo card yesterday so I’ll be adding the books I’ve read since April 1st to that and creating a plan for a coverall.
Joining with Kat today to talk about knitting (and potentially unraveling) and reading today.
