Alby KAL November 15, 2013

Now that it’s what I like to call “gap weather” here in Portland, it’s time to make the neckwear to fill the, you know…

I’ve been busy making a little lace accessory for moi with some of my knitting friends

If you’d like to join us – there’s an Alby KAL going on in the Chic Knits group here

We’re having lots of fun putting together Alby shawls in very pretty color combinations – I’m on my Alby #4. When I first put my colors together, I was going to use some really interesting variegated sock yarn for the body of the shawl (now slated for a slouchy beanie) but as I was knitting my border I noticed a color combo that occured with the lace against the dark indigo jeans I was wearing -

This pinged my memory – I had some left-over yarn from a 2012 beanie project and it would be perfect for a simple but dramatic pairing:

I love the look of the creamy BARE NAKE WOOL fingering (in Oatmeal) alongside the dark dark navy of the RANCO.

And there’s something about when you hit an exciting ingredient point that spurs the knitting right along and it wasn’t too much later that this happened:

    Wow! I would not think to put those two colors together, but they are so pretty!!! I love the contrast of the cream and navy. It’s a bit nautical, but still delicate and feminine.
