New KnitScene Projects Revealed- Fall 2006

| | Comments (1)

Fall 2006 Knitscene Project guide Fall 2006 issue available June 27, 2006

My favorite item in this issue is the Central Park Hoodie (photo copyright Knitscene and Interweave Press)

It uses Tahki Donegal Tweed but it'd look great in other worsted yarns.

Wilton's Violet and Black

My first yarn dying attempt came out nicely.
Dye: Wilton's Violet and Black Pastes
Yarn: Henry's Attic "Kona Superwash lace Fingering Weight":

Goal Color: 1/2 Purple and 1/2 Dark Purple.
Actual Colors: Different Shades of purple all over with some charcoal, blue, and mint green.

The green is going to stay due to popular vote. The colors remind me of the Carribean and of Northern Lights. A quick lookup lead to this wonderful Northern Lights in Norway I envy Norwegian knitting skills and Norwegians can actually use woolies, so Norwegian Northern Lights it is.

Next dye project will probably be with Kona Superwash DK and Wilton's Greens or ProChem OneShot. I like how the Kona feels once washed.
